My mum was recently poking at me because as I was folding laundry, all the shirts had slightly different widths and fold variations. What can I say? I did not inherit her folding perfectionist gene (jokes aside, she is an origami professional). She probably gave me my 468th lesson on how to fold them uniformly, but they were still all ugly, and lots of time was wasted. Enter my homemade shirt folding board. All it takes is a big cardboard box, scissors, and some tape. You'll be folding clothes uniformly, 10 times as fast. Mum may call this cheating, but the perfectly folded shirts were very much approved.
You can vary on the dimensions for your board panels. If you have much larger shirts, you can cut add some inches to the dimensions I've provided here. I wear small tops so this was perfect. You can always measure your average shirt to see what would be a good fold size for you and wherever you store them. This works for long sleeved shirts, as well.
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 1 board
That will make the dreaded laundry day so much easier...Thank you!
Guarantee you'll love it.. and have fun!
Thank you so much for these instructions! I have seen these folding boards before but had no idea how to make one.
I'm so happy you will do it, Janice! Good luck and have fun fast-folding! :)
