Whether you’re packing to go on holiday or just wanting to store your garments crease-free, learn how to fold T-shirts properly using this no-fuss, five-step Japanese method”_
1. Place the garment flat on a surface, face up.
2. Imagine a horizontal line running exactly through its middle. Imagine another running vertically down from the centre of the left shoulder seam. Pinch the material with your left hand where the two lines intersect.
3. Take the centre of the shoulder seam with your right hand then cross your right hand over the left, bringing the fabric with you, and grab the base of the garment at the other end of that vertical line.
4. Uncross your hands, keeping hold of the material, and shake flat. Lower the T-shirt back on to the surface such that the left sleeve tucks underneath. Stash in your closet.
