An Australian mother has shared her simple trick for folding bath towels like they do in a five-star hotel, so you can put them on display or slot them easily into any cupboard.
‘Bring the spa home to you. This type of fold is space-saving for storage and also looks luxe in your bathroom,’ she captioned it.
The 30-second home hack was created by @mama_mila_au , who has received three million views on her TikTok video since it was uploaded on June 13
The footage shows her lying a plain blue towel down on a flat surface, like the kitchen table or the end of a bed.
She then folds in the top right side to the halfway mark to make a triangle before reaching for the top left side and folding from that corner across, all the way to halfway.
What you’re left with looks like a folded paper aeroplane.
Next you flip the towel over, and starting from the left side, start rolling it up like you would any other towel.
Mila starts by folding a triangle piece into the centre before folding down from the top (pictured left and right)
It’s efficient and prevents the towel from unravelling when you place it down on a flat surface
You’ll get to a point where the ‘triangle’ leftover will be all that remains, and this gets tucked into the side of the rolled up towel.

Plenty of people were in awe of the final result and hoped they would be able to replicate it at home.
Mila has shared a separate video on folding hand towels, hokislot88 which involves folding them in half, and half again, before pulling the corners inside out to reveal the ‘tuft’ at the bottom.
