Folding clothes is the worst part of doing laundry. Folding shirts by hand is time consuming, inconsistent, and untidy. This can lead to wrinkles, unorganized closets, and wasted time ironing. The Crease-Mate is a shirt folding board that will alleviate these inconveniences. This solution is quicker, neater, more consistent, and it's virtually free! The Crease-Mate is incredibly easy to make, just follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies you will need are:

  1. Single wall, two-face, corrugated cardboard
  2. Any tape (Duct tape recommended)
  3. Standard box cutter
  4. Measuring tape
  5. Writing utensil

Step 2: Outline and Cut Out the Panels on the Cardboard

Dimensions of the panels

  1. Draw two 10" x 14" rectangles and use the box cutter to cut them out of the cardboard.
  2. Draw two 10" x 28⅛” rectangles and use the box cutter to cut them out of the cardboard.
  3. Arrange the panels as shown in the figure above. NOTE: BE SURE TO MAINTAIN 1/8" SPACING BETWEEEN ALL PANELS DURING TAPING STEPS.

Step 3: Tape the Panels Together

1. Use strips of tape to join seams 1-2, 2-3, 2-4 on the front face, being careful not to overlap corners.

2. Fold over joint 1-2 and apply tape to the back side while fully folded, being careful not to overlap corners.

3. Repeat step 2 for seams 2-3 and 2-4.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Crease-Mate!
