I gotta admit, I was a bit skeptical to watch a one minute plus video on how to do something in two seconds, but dang, I think I need to try this out.
Cool find. Have you tried it out yet?

I tried it right after I watched the video, the shirt is back in the laundry basket.

I am just too stupid to fold a shirt in two seconds.

I need more time I tell ya, I need more time, I can't take the pressure!

I saw a similar video years ago and it does work. It takes a little longer than 2 seonds but it does work.

I saw this before but that's not how I fold my shirt so I never tried it.

I put them on a hanger. I have enough room in my closets that nothing is crowded.

Shrek is good at this method, but for him it's a parlor trick, not something he will do at the laundromat.

I tried it but I couldn't do it that fast or neat. I did it in about 30 seconds LOL I can do it the old fashioned way in less than 10 !! I just need to practice I guess.

I'm thinking....why? I'm not that "covered up" in shirts that I want to be concerned about how many seconds it takes me to fold them.

Martha Stewart did a whole explanatory demonstration of this method on her TV program quite a few years ago. Guess it's still making the rounds.

Wow, that is some fast folding there

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
