    I'm so glad that I work at home -- I took off my t-shirt and gave the method a try right here in my office. Works great! [​IMG]

    I sent the link along to my friends, and a couple of them said that it looked like the shirt was folded with a folding board first. But, folding board or no folding board, practice makes perfect. [​IMG]

    I'm weird. I hang my tshirts on hangars. The only thing that gets put in drawers are socks and underwear.

    This little video completely stopped all work in my department for about 20 minutes, while we desperately looked for a clean shirt to try it on.

    It worked!

    I'm sitting here stepping through the Quicktime trying to pick up the technique. She folds the shoulder down and she does something with her other hand underneath and then it happens too fast!!! Even one frame at a time, I'm not sure what she does. No Tshirt here.

    It doesn't give you a traditional symmetrical fold. The thing that I found tricky to pick up is this - after you take the shoulder down to the hem, hold on to the hem and shoulder as you draw the other shoulder through.

    That aside, I'm sure there's a silica packet in the t-shirt.

    i used to do this, but all my shirts got stretched at the ends of the hangers, so i started putting them in drawers. and i must figure out how the hell she does that, it could come in very useful.

    I put my tees on hangars too, except for those I wear as undershirts. Those I fold, merely because it would mean an awful lot of hangars.
