To aid you in your linen closet de-cluttering, here’s a short video that clearly explains the step by step process:
In no time, you’ll be folding like a pro & will smile with satisfaction at your neat stacks of 400 Thread Count Sateens. Or, at the very least, you’ll be able to get your linen closet ship-shape, spending less time digging around for things & more time relaxing.
