Perfect Towel Folding

Organizing Good Things 2004

Here is an easy trick for keeping your towels neatly folded. Place the towel flat on the bed. Center a standard-size cutting board in the center of the towel. Fold one end of the towel over to the edge of the cutting board; then fold the other side of the towel. You might have to adjust the cutting board so it's perfectly centered. Remove the cutting board, then fold the towel in half. For hand towels, use a smaller cutting board.

    This hint I will pass on to my daughter...she already thinks I am half out of my mind for ironing sheets

    For the past 3 years I have used a FLIPFOLD to fold my laundry (anything) and keep my closets and drawers organized. Everything looks neat and is folded to the same size. Prevents wrinkling, too.

    Grat idea that also works for shirts. I have also used magazines to fold the shirts and they look pretty because of the same size.
