How to fold towels?

In this article, we will show you how to hand fold towels. This will give a spa-like feel to your bathroom.

Motivation

If you are having guests over, then there is nothing like a perfectly prepared guest room and bathroom to make them feel right at home. Many estate agents and property developers also devote a lot of time to staging rooms. Folding towels, laundry and even making towel origami is all part of this process. Believe it or not, household decoration can actually push up house prices!

Experience

If you have any prior experience in folding napkin designs, then decorative towel folding will be very easy for you. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, then try hiring a book that explains how to make origami animals. This will really impress your guests!

Towels

The better quality towels are those which are thicker and stiffer. They will be easier to fold into complex shapes. Towel art is actually somewhat of a subculture, so try an Internet search and you'll soon be making animal shaped towels! Obviously, you need to make sure that you are using clean, dry towels as pre-used or damp towels will begin to smell when folded.Smelly laundry is definitely not the good impression you want to make on your visitors!

Folding

Towel folding instructions - Lay your towel out flat. Some five star hotels actually press their towels, though most people will not want to do this. Fold the towel in half lengthwise, and then fold again in the same direction. - Turn the towel through ninety degrees and roll into thirds. - Display the towels with the folded edge facing forwards.
Tips For an extra special appearance, place a decorative soap, flower or aromatherapy candle on top of the towels. Presentation In five star hotels, towels are laid at the bottom of the bed, often with a personalised welcome note or gift. If you are having special friends or relatives to stay with you, then this might be a nice touch. Simple touches like a properly folded towel are an inexpensive way to show that you care about your guests and that you are proud of your home. Final word Folding a towel is much like any other fabric origami. With this in mind, you don't need to search for specialised towel crafts publications. Instead, search for any kind of origami books or guides that will show you how to fold decorative cloth napkins.
