Today I’m going to show you a quick tutorial for how to fold bath towels. I have folded my towels like this for many year and their are lots of reasons I prefer this method. I will tell you those at the end, let’s get to the tutorial.
Step 1: Lay the bath towel flat, or hold it in your hands with one of the short sides, at the top.
Step 2: Fold the towel in half the long way.
This will make the towel long and skinny.
Step 3: Fold the towel in half again, but this time fold it top to bottom.
You should have a narrow rectangular shape towel at this point.
Step 4: Fold the top of the towel down 1/3 of the way, not all the way to the bottom.
The towel should now look like this.
Step 5: Now take the top half of the towel (the part you just folded into a third) and fold it in half.
The towel will look like this when you are done.
I love my towels being folded like this for lots of reasons, but I wanted to give you the to main reason:
- Folding them like this makes the towels very narrow, which makes them easier to store in the cupboard/closet, and it keeps your cupboards very organized.
- They are also easy to take out of the cupboard and hang on the towel rack. Instead of refolding them to hang, all you have to do is unfold the last 2 steps and then it’s ready to be hung up!
Do you have a favorite way you fold your towels?
