Dress Shirts and Other Long-Sleeved Shirts

Dress shirts are something that you especially want without wrinkles, so hanging them is always the best option. However, most of us don’t have this luxury due to lack of space, but by following these steps, you can fold your long-sleeved shirts to them as wrinkle-free and space-saving as possible.

T-shirts and Other Short-Sleeved Shirts

If you struggle with closet space for hanging dress shirts, long-sleeved shirts, jackets, etc., then there’s probably no way you can hang your T-shirts or other short-sleeved shirts. But that’s okay, because most people prefer them to be folded anyway. There are couple ways to do the folding. After some practice, the fastest one is the “two-second T-shirt fold.” But for those time when you don’t have a flat surface available, there’s also a standing way to do it that’s fast and effective.
