Folding a Towel

Martha Stewart Living Television

It may seem like a small detail, but the way you display your towels can have a significant impact on the appearance of a bathroom or linen closet. To store your towels so that they're accessible, tidy, and aesthetically pleasing, fold each into thirds lengthwise, flattening the folds with your hands. Fold each towel in half, then in half again; repeat this step for hand towels. Once they're folded, simply stack them in neat piles placed on a countertop or stored away in a linen closet.

    I was happy with this tip. Unfortunately I can't put the towels lengthwise in my bathroom cupboard, but even sideways it looks good. Thanks.

    In my house we store the towels in a small cabinet which is half glass, it looks much more tidy and neat when you fold it in thirds and how you explained! Thanks for the ideas!!
