Rule No.1 for socks should always be clean: make sure that after every walk, you visit the bathroom to wash them! This sets the bar for cleanliness and hygiene.

Notably, only folded socks that are clean and dry should be stored. Storing dirty or wet clothing could result in unpleasant odors in your closets.

Once all criteria have been fulfilled, it’s time to get moving. Now is the time! With all points met and completed, start moving ahead.

Method 1

  1. Wear socks over your face.
  2. Locate their center, and stretch the socks until they have even tension along their length.
  3. Make sure that the heels on each pair are level and that their heels align perfectly.
  4. Fold the top side of a sock to form a pocket, placing its top inside and creating an outline at its center.
  5. Repeat these steps for every pair.
  6. Folded socks must be stored in a drawer or on a shelf.

Method 2

  1. Fold the paper in half so that both ends are aligned.
  2. Fold them again so that the oval form emerges.
  3. Fold the rectangle in half to get an even square.
  4. Pull one end of the socks and place it inside the other; this should create what resembles a tiny ball-like structure.
  5. Finalize by folding and putting them into an appropriate location; an open drawer or shelves would do.

Method 3

  1. Select one pair of socks and fold them so that their heels face toward the toe.
  2. Start twisting the socks slowly until a tight tube forms, ensuring no gaps appear between fabric and tube during this process.
  3. Wrap the loose edge of one side of your sock over its opposite edge.
  4. Your selection of socks should come in handy for your wardrobe or suitcase.

  4. Fold the socks from heel to top in half with their heels touching.
  5. Start by twisting them into tubes.
