Does anybody have this and does it work. I saw it on hsn today and although I don't fold many shirts I think it would be nice for towels and sweaters. It looks thin enough that I could store between my washer and dryer.

It's really not that hard to fold things without a gadget to help! But, I've heard that it does work---give it a try!

I think the inventor of that (was it Joy Mangano of the hangers fame on HSN????) meant it originally to teach kids how to fold clothes then patented it. My kids are all thumbs so I don't know how much help this would be. They fold their own clothes and we all know how THAT goes. I can fold without a tool!

Abercrombie, Gap, Banana Republic, etc, all use folding boards to get those nice neat displays, so I would say they work well.

yup, I remember using one when I worked at Old Navy's, though it's not that hard to fold T shirts in a similar fashion w/o a board.

now, if anyone can create a contraption that can neatly and nicely fold fitted sheets, I'd buy it in an instant!

I know that there's a trick to this, but I have never been able to do it successfully.

Lol.

This is how I do it.

Fold it in half (short end to short end) tuck the corners together.

Fold in half again, bringing corners together and tucking.

lay on a flat surface, fold into thirds lengthwise, with the corner in the middle.

Fold into thirds again, with the end that is irregular in the center, ending up with a neat square (approx) with neat edges.

This might be hard to follow but w/out pictures i don't know how to explain it better.

I use one for t-shirts. Works very well. Seems to be faster than without. I like it and think it's worth the price.

Thanks. I just might get one. I like things folded neatly, especially my towels and sweaters
