Fold A Bath Towel Efficiently For Easy Storage And Hanging

Folding a towel wouldn't seem an area in need of improvement and wiser time use, but folding a towel to go straight from the linen closet to the hanging bar saves real time.

Why fold a towel one way to store it, then have to refold it to hang neatly on the towel bar in your bathroom? If you fold it properly, you can simply pull it out of the linen closet and flop it right over the bar without having to refold or fuss. Over at the organisation blog Unclutterer, they offer a simple photo tutorial on folding a towel so that it's ready to be hung right out of the closet. The steps:

1. Either lay the bath towel front-side down on a clean surface or, if your arms are long enough, hold the towel in a similar manner: 2. Fold into thirds (lengthwise): 3. Fold the long strip in half (bring short edges together): 4. Fold the strip in half again.

How to Fold a Large Bath Towel [Unclutterer]

    This is a good tip, but I find I can fit more towels on a wardrobe shelf if I:
    1. Fold into half or thirds (lengthwise),
    2. Roll tightly (along the short edge)

    It works for large or small towels, and you can simply unroll and hang so there's no refolding required for the towel bar. It's also really efficient for travel-packing.
