Five Tips On How To Fold Underwear For More Space
Your bedroom should be a haven for relaxation and clear-minded bliss. Life gets busy, and it's okay to leave the laundry unfolded sometimes. Putting away underwear might be your literal last priority.
But what if you could try simple hacks to improve the organization of your underwear drawer? We're here to show you some easy changes you can make to free up drawer space and create a more comfortable atmosphere.
What's Your Current Method?
First things first—let's talk about your current laundry habits. Are they working for you? Perhaps you typically throw your child's underwear into your own drawer because they take up too much space in their dresser. Maybe you've been tossing your husband's clean boxers into a hamper because you don't know how to fold them. Knowing your current systems is an essential step to discovering what can be improved.
Are You Storing Your Underwear in the Best Place?
Something else to consider is whether you're storing your delicates and undergarments in the best place. Attempting to fit all of your underwear into a three-inch section of your jeans drawer might lead to problems. Your child leaving their undies in a pile by the edge of their bed could become a tripping hazard before too long. Finding the right storage space is the perfect first step to creating a folding system that works for you.
Five Tips to Save Space When Folding Your Underwear
After you've thought about what your current folding system is, it may be time for a revamp. Don't worry – you don't have to redo your entire wardrobe. Changing the way you fold underwear doesn't have to take a long time at all, either. Let's find a process that's easy for you and your family to manage. We've put together five tips you can incorporate into your laundry folding the next time the dryer buzzes.
1. Try the Square
If you're folding briefs, this method is a great place to start. Begin by laying your pair of undies flat and facing down. Fold the crotch up to be even with the sides to make one long strip. Next, fold each side in so that your pair makes a square. Then, flip them over so the folds are hidden in the back.
You can line these little squares in your drawer upright to make a neat row or stack them on top of one another.
2. Try Rolling Your Underwear
Another easy option for briefs is the rolling method. You can start with the same first step as the square method: lay them flat and face-down. Once you've folded the crotch to be even with the sides, roll your underwear into a cylinder shape.
You can place these on top of one another horizontally or align them vertically standing up.
3. Try the Egg Roll Method
The egg roll method is much different than the rolling process. Start with your underwear facing up with the waistband nearest you. Roll the waistband down halfway, leaving the crotch unrolled. Next, flip the undies over so that the front is facing down. Fold the sides so that they overlap, then tuck the crotch behind the overlap at the top and store the same way as your other rolled pairs.
4. Give Your Undies a Home
Let's move on from folding. Our next tip has more to do with where your undies live. If they're currently in the corner of a crowded drawer, consider moving them to a place where you can fold them neatly and access them more easily. You'll be more motivated to fold them when they have a home that works.
5. Fold Them Right Away
This tip may seem obvious, but it makes a big difference. Often, disorganization with clothing comes from half-heartedly putting things away. If you leave clean clothes in a pile for too long, you may want to throw them in a random drawer and call it a day. Taking the time to fold your laundry fresh out of the drier is a terrific way to maintain an organized wardrobe.
Storage Hacks for Your Delicates
If you're looking to expand your mind past simply folding your delicates together in a crowded space, we have solutions for you. You don't have to live with a messy closet and piles of laundry. Changing your drawer set-up is an easy way to eliminate chaos in your clothing storage. Here are a couple of options that can make organization easier.
Divide and Conquer
Try picking up some dividers to place in your drawer of delicates. This trick can help ensure that you have enough space for each item and know where each article belongs. It's a perfect solution if you typically find yourself unable to locate your boxers because they're hiding among your wife's bikini-cut bottoms. Dividers can provide a special place for each of your undies, shapewear, and socks so they don't get lost.
Know What Stays and What Goes
One last storage hack is to sort through the underwear you own. Evaluate your drawer from time-to-time to see if any old pairs of underwear are taking up unnecessary space. You might find that folding becomes more manageable once you throw out worn pairs that are crowding the others. Minimizing your collection to your quality pairs of undies could be the game-changer for you.
