It may make people laugh: Wait, what? How to fold a towel? Ha ha!
Yes, I would laugh about it too. But when you want to save some space, a roughly folded towel will not work. It will be unpleasant and the bathroom will look untidy. So, it’s better to use some tactics and fold these little useful pieces of cloth, aka towels, in the way that they deserve.
Remember, there are basically two ways to fold towels, which are narrow and deep. If your shelf has a length of 12 inches, then the narrow folded method would be best. On the other hand, the deeply folded towel works best when the cabinet is deep above the toilet.
So, without wasting much time, let’s get started with the tips and tricks on folding towels. Let’s make our bathroom look like a tidied-up 5-star hotel washroom, shall we (Well, that was a well-thought exaggeration, ha ha)?
The Narrow Towel Fold
Step 1: Spread the towel on a flat surface (preferably a table). Fold the longest side of the towel in half. This step will be easier to do if you are standing up.
Step 2: Fold the triangular shaped towel again; this time you have to bring the longest side down.
Step 3: The next step is to bring down the hemmed corner of the towel almost 1/3rd of the way to the center, but not fully. This step can be done effortlessly if you have put the towel on a flat surface.
Step 4: It’s time for the other end of the towel. Bring down the other side of the towel to the center until it intersects the edge.
Step 5: Rotate the towel in such a way that the fold faces forward, making a 90-degree turn. You are now left with a narrow folded towel that can fit any narrow space you want to keep it in your bathroom.
The Deep Towel Fold
Step 1: Spread the towel on a flat surface (preferably a table). Fold the longest side of the towel and bring it down to 1/3rd way to the center.
Step 2: It’s time for the remaining long side; fold that side too and bring it down towards the middle.
Step 3: Hold the two halves and bring them together. This is the width the towel will end up with after you are done folding.
Step 4: Fold the two ends and bring them down to the middle by leaving a small gap at the center. This gap will ensure that you don’t end up with a big bulge in the front when you are done.
Step 5: Now, do the final fold by bringing the two halves together. You can do that by putting your hand in the gap you made in step 4, and then flipping one of the sides over.
Step 6: Finally, rotate the towel at 90 degrees where the fold is facing the front. You are now left with a skinny folded towel, capable of fitting in any deep shelves you have.
Narrow and deep are the two ways by which you can fold almost any towel; use these methods to save space and to make your washroom look tidier!
