Fold the Towel in Half
Grasp the towel midpoint down its length, then lift your chin to allow the top half of the towel to drop down over the bottom half.
Fold the Towel Again
Lay the towel on a flat surface and fold it again in the middle to form a neat bundle, and store it in the linen closet. If the towel is to be used right way, it doesn’t need as many folds; just flip it over a towel rack.
Having a different-colored towel for each family member makes it easy for people to find the right fresh towel when needed. Let children pick the color of their towel and they'll happily cooperate.
For best wear, ensure that you rotate linens. Place freshly washed towels on the bottom of the stack.
