hand towels that are folded and rolled similarly to spa style tubes will take up less space than those that are folded into flat squares.
By choosing to roll your hand towels you'll not only save space; you'll be able to stack them nicely.
In fact, you'll probably be able to store more of them on your shelves since they can be stacked just as high as flat folded towels.
The best way to fold your hand towels, you will need a flat surface and your hand towel. First, you will need to spread out your hand towel on your flat surface. It should be open with the long edge facing you.
Pick up the bottom right corner and fold it away from you so the edges align and form a triangle. Then take the remaining bottom portion of the towel and fold it up so it meets the long edge.
When it comes to storing your towels, the best place to keep them is outside of the bathroom. This is primarily due to bacteria.
