Do you love the plush towels at a nice hotel or inn?
Plush towels and high-quality sheets are one of my favorite things about staying away from home.
If you’ve ever noticed, towels are often folded differently at a ‘nicer’ hotel. It’s called the French Fold.
And it’s oh so easy.
It’s very similar to folding towels in the normal, every day way. But with a twist:
First, lay your towel flat with the seam side down. The raw edge should be facing up. Smooth the towel as flat as possible with your hands.
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.
Bring the right side of the towel towards the middle and fold the edge.
Bring the left side of the towel towards the middle and fold the edge.
Finally, fold the right side over the left side and smooth.
So if your Laundry Life is needing a change of pace, try the French Fold. Sometimes just folding an item in a different way takes the drudgery or mundane feelings away from it.
Next time you’re feeling a little wild and crazy while folding towels, try it this way!
I do mine in 3rds, then in half twice, but they do not lay that flat. I am going to try this! Thanks.

I’m French living in France and we never fold towels like that except in the hotels!!!But it’s a good shape for towels. Thanks for sharing!!
You know, I don’t know why it’s called a ‘French Fold’ now that you mention it!
Now, if only my towels were as plush as a nice hotel’s… 😉
I just love your tips!!!!

Oh I’m so glad! Hope they’re working for you!
They look so pretty! Maybe refolding all my towels so they’re pretty would make me feel like I’ve accomplished something today. 🙂
