I am an avid follower of TED, and recently watched the video above, titled “How to use a paper towel” by Joe Smith.

Such a simple idea. I bet all of us knew about this, but somewhere down the line the convenience of grabbing a few extra towels to dry our hands trumped the sensibility of shaking out the excess water beforehand. I am inspired by this and try to follow it whenever I can. However I notice that at times my muscle memory takes over I ended up with more towels than I need. A reminder in the restroom would help not just me but also my fellow hand dryers. So this is what I came up with…




Help me spread the word. Please feel free to print and share it, and if you can, display it in your restrooms. Trust me, the paper you will save by putting this up will more than make up for the one sheet of paper that you will print this on. 🙂

Here are a few of them in action. Send in your photo submissions to or tweet your pics with the #shakefold tag.
