    place

    Hi there,
    I have a rectangular box which has of course 6 sides. I want to ask my maid to place it on its side. Can I say like these?

    Place it upright.
    Place it on its left/ right side.

    Thanks
    pete

    Place it on its front/back/left side/right side.

    "left side / right side" will be identified in relation to the front of the box facing towards you.
