Regular.

What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom) ?

Right now they are tan/beige. But just came back from vacation and wonder why all hotel/motel towels are always white. Has anyone ever been in a hotel/motel where the towels were some other color?

Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?

Would these color coded people be the same "guys" flipping the toilet paper so it rolls to their own preferred way?

How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ?
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?


No folding
