TIME SAVING AND SPACE EFFICIENT METHODS TO FOLD BOXER BRIEFS FAST

Taking time to fold clothes doesn't have to be a drag - actually, I won't go that far.

Folding men's underwear doesn't have to be boring, and learning how to fold boxer briefs isn't as tedious as you might think. There are plenty of easy ways to fold boxer briefs fast that saves time, space, and money - yes, money. Taking time to properly fold underwear reduces overall wear and tear and prolongs the life of your boxer briefs. (More on this later)

Learn the top 6 best ways to fold boxer briefs as well as some other pointers in this ultimate guide explaining how to fold mens underwear.

Drawlz Tipz: Share this article with your girl as some of these methods can be used to fold panties and thongs as well.

HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE

Underneath each method, you'll see two descriptors; recommended fabric and best for. Here's a quick breakdown of what each one means.

RECOMMENDED FABRIC

After testing multiple fabrics on each folding method, we found that certain fabrics didn't agree with certain folds. To save you the frustration, each folding method lists a combination of the underwear material it 'plays nice' with, being nylon, micro modal, or cotton.

BEST FOR

Underneath the 'Best For' section of each method, you'll see a combination of travel, saving space, organization, saving time, or appearance. This lets you know which ways to fold underwear are best for different use cases.

WHY YOU SHOULD FOLD BOXER BRIEFS

Taking the extra 20 seconds to neatly fold boxer briefs will save you time, space, and money.

You'll save time in the mornings or when you're in a rush as you won't have to rustle around for the pair you're looking for; you'll save space and stay organized by neatly consolidating your underwear drawer; and yes, you'll save money as correctly folding men's underwear reduces wrinkles and overall wear and tear. In other words, your underwear will last longer.

Besides, as the old saying goes, 'Cleanliness is Godliness', especially with home organization - even when it comes down to the way you fold underwear.

Plus, keeping your underwear and sock drawer clean and organized helps you to easily identify and get rid of old cheap underwear, a pretty embarrassing problem as we reviewed in this hygiene guide.
