Learn how to quickly fold a shirt

Almost a case of the hand deceiving the eye!

Newspaper cutting of The Times, Wednesday, February 26, 2003 showing a letter from Daniel Rouah

Lay the shirt facing upwards on a table with a long side facing you and the neck opening on your left.

Use your hand to draw an imaginary line from the shoulder to the hem on the far side.

Now pinch the shirt along this line with your left hand at the shoulder with your right hand in the centre of the shirt.

Next, fold the shoulder over crossing your left hand over your right and meet the hem along this line.

Pinch the hem and shoulder together with your left hand fingers. Lift the shirt and uncross your hands, pulling the shirt taut. Give it a shake.

Lay the shirt down sleeve first, then the body face up on top to finish.

For long sleeves, lay the shirt fully face down then fold the sleeves in neatly before you make the final fold.

Confused by the words above? Perhaps watching the video of how to fold a shirt will be more helpful.
