It's no secret that we are big fans of cloth napkins around here. Not only do they look nicer on the table (or on your desk for an office lunch), but they also cut back on waste and make a typical meal feel just a little more special.

We have a million and one cloth napkins in the Kitchn studios. Our editors use them, our photo team scatters them around during shoots, our video crews pull them outwe have a lot of people using them. That's all to say that, despite our best efforts, the piles can get a little messy. So when Marie Kondo volunteered to come to our office, we had just the project for her: Fold some of our cloth napkin stacks in a way that makes sense (and wo not get all messed up again in two seconds).

2. Think about whatever container they are going in.

3. Fold in thirds.
