How To Fold A Towel

Okay...I know the title sounds weird. I know y'all know how to fold a towel, but I discovered a new way to fold them without any of the raw edges showing and I thought I'd share it. I saw this on a British tv show several years ago. I loved it and immediately went into all my linen closets and refolded all my towels! LOL! 

When I showed this to some friends of mine, a couple of them were asking what a "raw edge" was. Well, it's just when you can see the edge of the towel without it being folded under. Does that make sense? 

Here'a a picture of a towel folded the new way with no raw edges showing:

And here's a pic of a towel folded WITH the raw edges showing...

See the difference? I think it looks so much better without the "raw edges." :)

Here's a little tutorial of how to fold your towels all pretty with no raw edges. 

First, just lay your towel out flat with the tag side facing up.

Then just fold the top half down to the middle.

Then fold the bottom half up to the middle.

Then fold the right side over to the middle.

Then fold the left side over to the middle.
Then just fold the left side over on top of the right side and you're done!

Ta da!

I know this was a really dorky post, but maybe one or two of you will enjoy it. :) Happy folding!

  3. Fun! I still fold mine the way my mom taught me. My brain does that automatically. :)

  4. I have a certain way that I fold my towels that I learned back when I was a teenager working at a linen store. However, I like the way yours look better if I'm going to leave them sitting out. Thanks for the tutorial.
