Alongside fitted sheets (I'll be posting about that sometime), towels are the culprits that can leave a linen cupboard looking rather untidy. They seem to flop all over the place when your try and remove one, and their edges stick out making it look like you have a stack of 16 towels rather than 4. If you take a few extra seconds to lay towels out and fold them as shown below, I promise you, it makes all the difference to your linen cupboard (or your bathroom shelves)!
Lay the towel on a flat surface, and fold one of the long sides two thirds of the way in.
Bring in the opposite side over so that the towel is now folded into thirds.
Fold one of the short sides into the middle of the towel.
Fold in the other short side so that they meet in the middle.
Now fold the towel in half.
There you go- a towel good enough to display. Best of all, each towel will look like one towel only.
Some of you might already do this without even realising you're doing it... to make the towel fold easier and smoother use the edge of your hand to score the line where you want to make a fold ( a bit like scoring a piece of paper with the edge of the scissors). I use this scoring technique for folding sheets and tablecloths too.
PS: Our doggy is doing just fine now. He had a grass seed that got stuck within the flesh under his tongue causing an infection. He was so dopey after the vets yesterday, but this morning he was awake and ready for his breakfast again.Thanks for the lovely comments!
