Today I cleaned the second half of my laundry room. This is where I store my table linens. Mine aren't expensive, but I love serving a nice dinner on a pretty table. Learning how to store my table cloths properly so I get the most out of them is important to me.
Here are some interesting tips I learned:
Measure trouser hangers for width. Subtract about 1/4" from this measurement.
- Fold your table linens lengthwise, to just a little under this measurement. Most linens will have three folds.
Hang your table linens on the trouser hanger. Put the rarely-used linens, such as those for Christmas, all on the same hanger (or hangers).
Place the over-the-door hanger over your closet door. Extend the bar if necessary.
Starting with your most rarely-used linens, hang the trouser hangers onto the over-the-door hanger, closest to the door. Build forward, ending with your most-commonly-used linens farthest out (farthest into the closet when the door is closed).
When you're ready to use your linens, simply remove the one you want. Press out the lengthwise creases and you'll have your perfectly stored table linens ready to use!

At this point I don't have closet space for my table cloths, but maybe once we finish the basement I can find that space needed to follow the above steps. Tomorrow I will organize our computer area.
