How to Fold Pajamas

Save

Fresh, folded pajamas tucked under a pillow or in your dresser drawer are much more inviting than rumpled pajamas scooped from the floor. And although you could toss those P.J.s over the back of a chair or ball them up and toss them onto a shelf, It requires only a few flips of the wrist and elbows to properly fold pajamas.

  • Hold the pants up in front of you and fold them over lengthwise so that the legs, waist and seat align.

  • Lay the folded pants on a bed or workspace and smooth away the wrinkles with your hand.

  • Fold the ankle of the pants up to the knee and smooth the crease.

  • Fold the knee up to the waist and smooth the crease.

  • Set the folded pajama bottoms aside.

  • Hold the pajama shirt up in front of you and fold it over lengthwise so that the collar, sleeves and waist hem align.

  • Lay the folded shirt on a bed or workspace and smooth away the wrinkles with your hand.

  • Fold the arms back across the body of the shirt so that the arms meet or extend past the waist hem and smooth away the wrinkles.

  • Fold the shirt cuffs up to the elbow and smooth the crease.

  • Fold the bottom of the shirt up to the collar and smooth the crease.

Tips & Warnings

  • Stack the folded shirt on top of the pants to store.
