Ok, I put this on the site because I use this technique when packing things for travelling…and often need to be refreshed. Yes, for some readers this is an old video. But now I can find it when I need it.

    Holy Crap! It looks like magic! I practically live on the road and use the “stuff it in the bag and iron every morning in the hotel” method. I’m going to give this a try.

    It’s called the Ninja Folding technique… A few practice rounds and you’ll be Ninja Folding your self to The Eighth Way Snake Following Giraffe Pokemon Kamakazi… or something…

    I think I saw this five-point-exploding-fold technique during the closing credits for Crouching Laundry, Hidden Calgon.

    Gah!! I’ve been doing it wrong all these years!!!

    I use this trick, it wprks great

  6. Gregory says:

    That’s pretty cool. Not sure if it actually saves space though (vs other folding methods, or rolling).

    Looks damn cool though… that second step looks like a magic trick (and feels like it is when you are trying to follow the video, but it’s easy).

  7. Richard Brill says:

    Yeah thas cool!
    When I have nothing to do
    I go to the Gap and watch them fold garments while chewing gum.

  8. Pat says:

    Does it work with undies too ?

    I couldn’t follow her.

    When I showed my wife, she just moaned “that is why they invented the iron”.

  9. Gregory says:

    To explain it in words – you pull one corner to the opposite side, then – still holding the the mid-point – pick up the shirt and it should sort of fold itself from its own weight. It might need a little flick to get it to do that.

    The rest is just a simple fold.

  10. Yeah Right, One day a rabbit will pop out!

    I’m not sure that it takes up less space than a ball… After all a sphere has the smallest area of an object. All hotels/motels have irons and ironing boards in them any way! I tend to just shove as much as I can fit into the thing, and neaten it up when I get to my destination…

    But what the heck do I know, I only go away on ‘vacation’ every couple of years, and never go away on business.

  12. GregAllen says:

    That little mysterious flute in the background with the disembodied amazed voices really makes that video! I just love it when small simple touches puts something over-the-top.

  13. J.D. says:

    It works great – on short-sleeved shirts. Anyone modified this technique for long-sleeved shirts??

  14. PayneX says:

    Wow, i found this same video ages ago.
    I tried several times and simply can’t do it, it’s like copying a card trick, or learning to dance fm a video.

    I Guess there’s a reason why geeks aren’t known for being graceful.

  15. site admin says:

    There is a longsleeve shirt method I’ve seen demo’d by a Nordstroms person..I am trying to track it down.
