When doing laundry, do you fold your clothes right from the dryer? or do you put them in a basket and bring them somewhere else to fold them?

I'm wondering if folding them right from the dryer will decrease the amount of wrinkled clothes?

  • We fold our clothes right from the dryer it is easier for us when we wash . This way we can place the basket in the room it belongs in with all items folded . It makes it easier to put them way too..

  • We pull them out of the dryer and into a basket, which we dump onto our bed. From there we pull out anything that has to be hung up and lay them out flat, fold everything else, and then hang up the flat stuff and put everything away.

  • When I am not pregnant. I will bring them upstairs right away and fold and put away. Right know I can not carry it upstairs. so I fold them and put them in baskets and hubby will bring them up later. I like it the other way. It gets done faster.

  • i take them to the coffee table to fold, I HATE it with a passion, so I have to have an interesting show on tv to keep me from just throwing the lot of them back in the dryer

  • If I'm good, I fold them straight out of the dryer. If I'm naughty, I put them in a basket and fold them later. The second option is terrible, though, because they always end up REALLY wrinkled that way. LOL

  • I fold them as they come out of the dryer and put them in each person's basket. Sometimes, I leave sheets and towels in the dryer and fold them the next time I do wash.
