Fold Your Socks Instead of Rolling Them up for Better Organization
How to remove socks? You probably roll them, right? Perhaps with an Army Ranger check? Folding socks into origami-like squares can be more compact.
The video above, posted by YouTuber Clara Egilson, shows you this new sock folding technique. Typically, you lay your socks perpendicular to each other, fold and tuck them into each other. This not only prevents the stretching that occurs when spinning, but it also makes it a little easier to arrange your socks as you are dealing with flat squares and not balls. I imagine Marie Kondo putting away her socks .
Unfortunately for short socks this method doesn’t work and it takes longer, but it also looks funny – how much you can associate “washing” with “fun”.
