How to Fold a Bathrobe

by Grace Phan ; Updated September 28, 2017

One of the best parts about being a hotel guest is unfolding a freshly laundered bathrobe for a night of relaxation. While you may not have access to room service at home, you can take tips from hotel housekeeping to re-create that spa feeling. Grab your bathrobe off its hook, and fold it neatly to give yourself the five-star experience.

Step 1

Wash your bathrobe and dry it completely.


  • Place two tennis balls in the dryer with your bathrobe to keep it fluffy and soft.

Step 2

Remove the belt from the robe. Place the robe on a flat surface such as a bed or table, with the front facing upwards.

Step 3

Position the two open edges of the robe directly beside each other so that they are touching. If the robe has a hood or collar, fold it straight down over the robe’s neckline.

Step 4

Pick up the right sleeve and fold it straight across the robe, horizontally. The cuff will sit at the outer edge of the robe.

Step 5

Pick up the left sleeve and fold it directly across the right sleeve.

Step 6

Grasp the collar of the robe and tightly roll it towards you until you reach the end and create a cylinder.

Step 7

Wrap the tie around the robe, and tie it into a bow to secure the robe until the next use.


  • Spritz your robe with your favorite perfume or body mist before storing it. This will give it a fresh scent the next time you use it.
