Advantages Of Folding Boxers
Why bother folding them at all? Why not scrunch them into a ball and just throw them in your draws?
1. Saves space
Folding boxers neatly can help you save space. Neatly folded boxers take up less room than crumpled or unfolded boxers, allowing you to fit more items in a smaller space.
2. Feeling Organized
Feel good about yourself whenever you look into your organized draw, free of clutter, even when the rest of your life isn’t. It also makes it easier to find the pair you're looking for and saves you time when getting ready.
3. Prevents wrinkles
Neatly folded boxers are less likely to get wrinkled than crumpled or unfolded boxers. This is especially important if you wear dress pants or other clothing that requires a smooth appearance.
4. Protects fabric
Folding boxers neatly can help protect the fabric from wear and tear. When boxers are crumpled or thrown in a drawer, it can cause the fabric to stretch or become misshapen over time. Folding them neatly can help maintain the shape and elasticity of the fabric.
5. Easy to pack
Neatly folded boxers are easier to pack for travel or storage. When your boxers are folded neatly, they take up less space in your suitcase or storage container, leaving more room for other items.
Disadvantage Of Folding Boxers
There are none except for your time.
How To Fold Boxers Perfectly
Here are few neat ways for you to store your undies. Especially applicable when the material is stretchy and soft.
#1 THE LOG
Our personal favorite and the neatest of the three. Like how its tucked in so the boxer briefs stays in place in your draw.
#2 THE SQUARE
This method has the smallest footprint but think its only possible if the boxer briefs are made from thin and soft fabrics as its folded many times.
#3 THE SMALLER LOG
This one is a bit more difficult and only for the brave.
How Does Marie Kondo Fold Boxer Briefs?
Marie Kondo, the Japanese organizing consultant and author, has a unique folding method that she uses for all types of clothing, including boxer briefs. Her method involves folding the clothing into a small and uniform shape that stands upright in a drawer. To fold boxer briefs using Marie Kondo's method, start by laying them flat on a surface with the waistband facing up. Then, fold the boxers in half vertically and then in half horizontally. Finally, fold the boxers in thirds so that they stand upright in the drawer.
