Towel Folding Step by Step

Before explaining towel fold, step by step, it should be noted that this method is just the simple method on how to roll bath towels and not the best way to fold towels. The best way depends on the preferences as some might prefer decoration over function. 

• Place the towel on a flat surface

• Put one corner of the towel in the middle of the long side to form a triangle. 

• Take the edge left from the corner folded above and put it on top of the opposite edge. Thus, a pocket is formed in the middle of the towel.

• Turn the towel back

• Starting from the straight edge, roll up the towel until the edge takes the triangle shape. 

• Tuck the small triangle remaining at the end of the towel. 

• Thus, it folds into a cylindrical shape.
