Tonight I started this post by writing: “There’s only one way to fold a towel.”

Then I went to YouTube to find a short video to illustrate my point. Well, it turns out there’s more than one way to fold a towel…

However, my mother taught me that there’s only one way to fold a towel. You fold it so it can go easily from linen closet to hanging.

To do this, you hold each end of the short side, fold one end in a third, and then the other end in a third, overlapping a bit. Then you fold it in half lengthwise–only once for hanging and twice for the linen closet.

I can’t fold a towel without doing it this way.
