My husband, The Complete Package, recently sent me a link to a You Tube video. He doesn’t usually do that unless it’s something interesting. As it turns out the video is part of a trend of learning to perform common tasks the “lean way” which just means more efficiently. In this case, it was how to fold a t-shirt. Translation – fewer steps, less time. When I watched it, I immediately said “Whuh???? Wait a second! Replay that!” I’m not going to lie. I watched it a few times. And then I ran straight to my dresser for a t-shirt.
Seriously, you have to see this. Click here to see the video TCP sent. Here’s a link for another version of the same folding technique.
And you know what? It works. Here’s a stack of t-shirts folded the lean way:
If you like to fold your t-shirts into smaller or more compact stacks, you just fold them in half again like so. Still only adds one simple step to the process, and they still end up perfectly uniform.
I know, I know… it’s not earth-shattering. But you have to admit, it is pretty interesting. And tell the truth. Did you or did you not grab a t-shirt and try this?
PS – Not that I have any knowledge of this type of thing, but hypothetically I’m thinking this would make a great bar bet. Just bet someone you could pick up a t-shirt and fold it without ever letting go of the shirt until it’s done. I mean, who wouldn’t love a free beer? Am I right?

Bahhhahaha. leave it to you to turn it into a bar contest!!!
I said “hypothetically” but I do think you could win a free beer with this trick. :)
I’ve seen this before and was blown away by it! Talk about efficient!
After winning a few of those bar bets, you may not be able to do this as effectively.
I thought the same thing. It was like magic tricks for laundry. I was mystified, then intrigued, then converted. I admit, I don’t fold all my t-shirts this way now, but it is a pretty cool trick and they do turn out just like those perfectly folded shirts in department stores.
WHOA! Now that is pretty cool! Gonna try this next laundry day. Thanks for sharing the video!
WHOA was my reaction the first time I saw that video, too. Pretty neat trick! I wish my mind worked like that all the time.
That is the coolest frickin’ thing I’ve ever seen! Can’t wait to try!!! Thanks Jeanne. (SMOOCH)
