Am I crazy or does anyone else just love the look of fresh, clean towels perfectly folded in nice, neat piles? But I never knew how to correctly fold towels to make them look so tidy. That is, until I found some instructions at Martha Stewart. Here's a little how-to help you neatly fold towels during your next laundry session.
You will need:
1 clean towel
1 clean cutting board (size depending on size of towel)
First, lay your towel completely flat on a hard, flat surface. Next, place your cutting board directly in the center of your towel lengthwise (as pictured below). My picture board is clean, just a bit "rustic". I have another one I use regularly, but I keep this old one for folding towels, etc.
Fold one side of your towel neatly over the cutting board.
Then fold the other side on top of the cutting board and other half of towel.
Then, fold the top half of the towel over the cutting board.
I have mine neatly place on a shelf in my bathroom. We put one where a vanity stool would be because I never need a vanity. I always do my makeup, hair, etc. standing up over my sink.
So there ya go! Hope you enjoyed this week's How-to Tuesday. Happy Folding! :0)
