How to Fold Socks Into Perfect Squares

Your sock drawer has never looked this neat.


Doing laundry already takes enough time, so we're definitely not advocating for any extra steps, BUT if you're a neat freak and looking to gain some drawer space (who isn't?), then this square folding technique is going to tickle your fancy. 

It looks tricky, but it's actually pretty basic. First, you lay the socks on top of each other perpendicularly, forming a cross shape. Then, you flip the bottom sock over the top, tucking in the toe.

And then the top over the bottom.

Lastly, you tuck the tops of the two socks in between the folds, and voilà a perfect square!

This multi-step method is definitely more time-consuming that the old roll-em-in-a-ball-together trick, but the origami-style routine is pretty mesmerizing to watch.
