How To Fold Towels And Save Space While Doing It
Yes I have figured out a way to save space
This is one of those things that I was playing around with and found that it worked. To the best of my memory I have always done the triple fold on towels. "Thanks mom".
My job at the time was overnight. This include cleaning the house. And yes doing laundry. Both clothes and linens. Sheets and pillow cases were easy. But when it came to towels some seamed different. Mine were smaller than the others. Did they shrink in the wash? No when unfolding them they were the same size.
What did I do? I took out all the towels and refolded them my way. This took a bit of time as there was more than one towel cabinet. Four to be exact. When I finished there was more room available for more towels and other linens. I showed the other person that I was working with that evening. And this impressed them. Its amazing how something small can make can make a difference. At that point the towels got a make over and folded that way ever sense.
And yes while taking pictures, just like when I fold laundry, the cat decided to join in.
OK I need to know
Who in your household folds the towels?
Some fun Bath Towels on Amazon
Before we get started here are some fun towels. Not all can follow along with what you are about to read. But they are still fun and worth looking at and adding to your collection.
First Fold - Holding the towel fold 1/3 from the right.
Second Fold - From the left fold over the remaing portion so the left edge matches the right edge.
A little something for my son
His other towel is Batman but a little something else fun is nice to have in the collection.
Third Fold - Starting at the top fold 1/3 of the towel down or over depending on how the towel is held.
Final Fold - Fold the remainder of the towel over the top so that it has the tripple fold.
Put It Away - You can put them in a drawer or on shelves that is your call.
A story about towels.
Yes I have one.
In the link below there are three trips that I took to Florida. One was me by myself. When I went down I brought a towel. But just to make sure my grand parents had a new towel for me. It was one from Cutty Sark. Interesting that I don't drink but that towel was large. Meaning I could wrap up in it. That was most of my body not just around the shoulders. Not as big as my current towel but still a good size. I the bad news it was used to do house hold clean up. Did not want to try to clean it. Bummer. Sorry no pictures to share.
