Folding laundry is one of my favorite household tasks. Seriously! I love the process and precision, and then the beauty of seeing everything neatly folded and stacked. I don’t like washing clothes, and ironing drives me batty. But folding is a pleasure!
I especially enjoy doing the sheets. The mother of a boy I dated in high school taught me how to fold fitted sheets, and I’ve been trying to perfect my technique ever since. I’ve even considered ironing the sheets so they’d look even nicer, but I’m not quite there yet. Maybe soon.
About a year ago, I discovered an Asian technique for folding t-shirts. I don’t know if it really saves me any time or results in a neater look than my old way, but it’s a fun method to use.
Crazy? Perhaps. But I’m sure most of us have some little chore that we secretly love and others hate.
