What is wrong with me that I don't care how a towel is folded........man I am definitely not an A type person am I? So I went on line today and found the following ways on "how to fold a towel"
This one in particular cracked me up........look it even rates the difficulty of the task.........EASY.
Things You’ll Need:
Remove bath towels from the dryer and place them in a stack on a large flat surface table to fold.
Take one bath towel at a time from the stack. Hold it out and "snap" it to make sure it is nice and straight.
Fold it over once from the top to the bottom. Now, fold it from side to side.
Starting at the top, with the fold to the right, fold the bath towel into thirds.
Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for the rest of the bath towels, one at a time.
OK, did you get the first step "take them out of the dryer".........it's like the English assignment that you are required to write on how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich..........I remember one kid.....and she got an A+ too.......went all the way to "Making the jelly and peanut butter and bread" (gag - gag) .........ok, I wandered again.
Well no the search was on.......here are some more and different instructions........
Hold a towel lengthwise, or lay it on a large flat surface such as a table. Fold the towel in half. If the towel has a right and wrong side, keep the right side out.
Fold the towel in half again, folding in the same direction as you made the last fold.
Now, fold the towel into thirds.
Your towel is folded neatly and correctly.
If you do not want any edges showing, simply fold each end into the center of the towel for step one. Continue with the additional steps as written
Hold on, there are more. Oh and these will give you "STORE QUALITY" folds....holy mackanolie, now people are worried about store quality folds in their homes???? I am just not the good and conscientious home maker of 2009, am I.
1. Bath Towels and Bath Sheets
2. Hold towel by corners on the same side of the shorter edge.
3. fold 2/3 the way to the other end. The area not "covered" will be approximately the result size of the folded towel
4. take the end facing you (the rounded or curved end) and meet that edge to the newly created edge at the 2/3 mark.
5. Fold again so the 1 layer is over the other layers
6. Take rectangular shape and fold into 3
7. NOW YOU HAVE A STORE QUALITY FOLD!
A totally silly blog........silly is good some of the time. So how do you fold your towels? Do I think that the quality of life depends on the "correct" way of folding a towel..........shoot you know the answer to that one.........do I still love and care about my friend who made the comment on towel folding..........you bet I do...........probably even more because she stirred up this silly blog.......will world peace depend on how towels are stacked in your linen closet.............hello? Ten years from now will anyone even remember this blog............not thinking so. But seriously, how do you fold your towels?
I hope you smiled while reading this.......did you? Did you at least smirk.......smirking is a start......
