How to Fold a T-Shirt Nicely


When we go shopping, we often see T-shirts that are folded very nicely. And of course, we’d like to see the same kind of neatness at home in our own wardrobes.

5-Minute Crafts is explaining how to fold T-shirts as a pro does. Also, we’re sharing secrets on how to store them if you don’t have a lot of space in your closet and drawers and how to put them into a suitcase to avoid crumpling them.

1. Classic method

The classic method allows you to fold T-shirts the way shop assistants do. To do this:

  1. Put the T-shirt with its back facing you.
  2. In your mind, divide the T-shirt into 4 parts and fold the right part to the center.
  3. Fold the T-shirt in half with its front side facing you.
  4. Fold the left side back.
  5. Place the T-shirt with its front side facing you.

2. Marie Kondo method

An expert on the organization of the household, Marie Kondo offers her own way of folding T-shirts. It’s especially useful if you’re limited in free space:

  1. Put the T-shirt with its back facing you.
  2. Make a horizontal line with your arm in the middle of the T-shirt.
  3. Divide the T-shirt into 4 parts and form the pieces on the right and left side toward the center and fold the sleeves in half.
  4. Fold the T-shirt in half horizontally with the front facing the outside.
  5. Then, fold it 2 or 3 times.
  6. Place it vertically.

3. Storing T-shirts without wrinkling them

This method allows you to fold a T-shirt without wrinkling it. This is great for traveling when you can’t use an iron.

  1. Place the T-shirt with the back facing upward.
  2. Fold the bottom hem upward, once.

  3. Divide the shirt into 4 parts and fold the sides from the left and the right to the center but keep the sleeves as they were.

  4. Fold the T-shirt in half vertically with its front on the outside.

  5. Roll the shirt from the top.

  6. Pull the bottom hem all around the shirt until everything is tucked in.
