Sheets & Towels


Years ago Martha Stewart taught me about folding towels. (Not just me, also her entire viewing audience.) Her advice to fold them all the same way, whether they are to go in the cabinet, linen closet, or be displayed on the towel bar, forever changed my habit. Here is Martha’s tutorial video (I’ve occasionally imagined that Martha is a distant relative of mine who brought me along when she summered, teaching me her domestic secrets. An imagination is a wonderful gift- so I just let those thoughts run loose.)


I also learned a great deal from Emilie Barnes’ books back in the mid-nineties. She shared her bed sheet advice many years before Pinterest came along. But I was so smitten with the crisp look of carefully bundled sheet sets in the linen closet that I had to implement! The instructions are over at “The Complete Guide to Imperfect Housekeeping”

Sing with me, “that’s the way (uh huh) it has to be, ’cause that’s the way I like it!”
