There really is a right way to fold your towels. This is it.

Yeah, really. Why do you think you like the look of towels in hotels so much more than you do at home? It's because they're folded and creased right. It's just a trick, which even you can learn. Hannah Bruneman details it for you, with pictures, step by step in her article for Better Homes and Gardens.

Begin with your bath towel and spread it out on a flat surface. Fold one long end towards the middle. Repeat on the other side.

Next, fold each small end towards the middle. Be sure to leave a gap, where the ends meet. This will allow room for one more fold.

Finally, pick up one end and fold it over the other, creating a perfectly folded bath towel.
