If you are tired of having wrinkles in your shirt, you should learn how to fold a long-sleeve shirt the right way. If you are packing a bag for a trip, you may end up having to launder or iron your shirt once you arrive at your destination unless you fold a long-sleeve shirt correctly. This can be a hassle, especially if time is an issue. If you just want to fold a long-sleeve shirt so you can free up some closet space, doing the job right will keep your shirts neat and ready to wear.
Things you may need:
- Flat surface
- Long-sleeve shirt
- Before you fold a long-sleeve shirt, button all the buttons. This will help you avoid wrinkles. It also helps if you iron the shirt first, but this is not always necessary if you fold the shirt the right way.
- Place the shirt on a flat surface with the buttons facing down. Smooth out any wrinkles in the shirt and fold one sleeve across the back. Stop at the seam of the sleeve. Repeat the process with the other side. Smooth the wrinkles once again.
- The next step is to fold the sleeves in half. Do one side at a time and make sure the sleeves touch each other at the middle of the back of the shirt. Straighten the bottom portion of the shirt and smooth out any wrinkles.
- Put both hands on the bottom of the shirt and fold it in half. This is the last step to fold a long-sleeve shirt. Flip the shirt over and make sure you are happy with the way it looks. Place the shirt in a drawer or in your travel bag and smooth out any wrinkles one last time.
