H is for How To Fold Towels Like A Professional

Maybe I'm grasping at straws to find 26 blog posts.

I thought of several topics.  Let's see, letter H.  Hungry?  Hosting?  Honesty?  Horror?
None of them seemed just right.

Then I decided I wouldn't try to wow anybody with my wit.  I'd just show something practical.  Yes, that will be my theme.  Practical stuff.

And so here we go.  How to fold a towel like a professional.

 Lay towel flat on a flat surface.  My towel has a few wrinkles.  Do as I say, not as I do.
 You are going to fold the towel into fourths.  Eyeball the center.  Fold the bottom up to the center line.
 Fold the top down to the center line so that the ends meet but do not overlap.  (just a note here.  Those big beach towels I have?  I only fold them into thirds.  )
 Then fold together on the center line.
 Fold the ends to the middle without overlapping.
 Fold one side on top of the other.  And there you go.  Nice and neat.
They stack very nice and orderly under the sink.


Yes, those are my real towels.  I thought about scouring the house for a complete matching set but why do that?  This is real life.  And besides, I'm busy!!

Now I need to think of something practical for letter i.  How to build an igloo?

I'll have to think about this one.


  1. I am such a freak for towels! I love them! I don't know where this came from, but I buy them ALL THE TIME! I have way too many for my linen closet, but I keep buying them anyway! AND, they have to be folded just so-so. I cringe anytime my husband tries to help me out by folding towels! Weird, I know.

  2. First thing that attracted mt to your blog was its name... My favorite color is RED!! Loved your post! And yes this is real life!! Love it!! Can wait to read How to build an Igloo. LOL!! Visiting from the A to Z Challenge

  3. Love that! Now if only I could learn to fold fitted sheets...

  4. Judy - I so understand!! I have to take a deep breath when my husband starts folding. ANYTHING. Not just towels. I just tell myself "he's trying, he's trying. " LOL

  5. I am going to do this! My towels are a mess. I tried rolling them like I saw on a decorating show on HGTV, but they still don't fit on the shelf. And I'm with Judy and Patti, I have to close my mouth tight when my husband graciously offers to fold the towels.
