Bath Towels should be relatively easy to fold, right? It is a rectangle after all. How hard can that be?
It’s true that bath towels are one of the easier items to fold…but there is a great way to fold them that make them sit and stack beautifully on the shelf.
I’m using a small bath towel in these pictures. And this method also works well for a regular, average size towel. I have a great method for bath sheets and beach towels I’ll post later.
Next, fold the bottom third of the towel towards the middle. This doesn’t have to be exact – just an eyeball measurement is fine. Smooth towel again with your hands.
Fold the top third of the towel so it meets the bottom edge.
Pick up the right side of the towel and fold all the way over to the left side. Smooth again.
Lastly, fold towel one more time from right to left.
When placing towels on the shelf, stack them with the rounded edge facing out. When you pull it off the shelf you pull out only the towel you’d like, instead of inadvertently pulling other towels down also.
