Tracy Metro Ringmaster of " The Domestic Circus," Tracy Metro is back today for some great home organization tips. Today, Tracy demonstrates some simple ways to organize your laundry room. Plus, Tracy has some great folding tips to help organize and store your linens.
Tracy Metro's Tips For Organizing Your Linens:
1. Fold towels so that the edges are hidden and the towels look fluffy and neat (this is how I fold – in a try-fold)
2. To get all fancy, do the French fold that you find in hotels. Towel is folded in thirds, then 1/4s.
3. Keep sets of guest towels together, bound with twill tape or ribbon. When visitors arrive, just transfer a stack from the laundry shelf or linen closet to guest bedroom.
4. Fold the sheets right as they come out of the dryer to avoid wrinkles, and do the snap and fold technique which helps get wrinkles out.
5. Some people like to fold the entire set of sheets minus one pillowcase which is used to store all of the sheets!
6. Folding sheets on a table, or using washing machine/dryer makes the task much easier than trying to do it mid-air
