Folding laundry is one thing. Even if you’re not a huge fan, it’s generally a pretty straightforward and easy enough task.
Folding fitted sheets however? That’s a whole other story.
Generally, it goes a little something like this: try to fold it like a flat sheet, realize that won’t work, attempt to somehow match up the corners, end up rolling everything into a ball and stuffing it on your shelf.
Well, luckily, we discovered the best way to fold a fitted sheet so you never need to go through the stress and cursing of trying to make it work again.
Follow the directions below or watch the tutorial here!
- Put your hands in two of the corners of the sheet with your hands along the seams.
- Put the two seams together, inserting one hand/corner into the corner of the other side. This will result in the sheet being folded in half.
- Place your hands in the other two corners and bring them together. This will result in the sheet being folded in half again.
- Lay the folded sheet on a flat surface. Two of the sides will be flat, and two of the sides will be rounded from the elastic band.
- Fold the rounded sides in, so you have a square shape.
- From there, fold your sheet into a smaller square, and you’re done!
This is the best tutorial we found on folding a fitted sheet! It will keep your linen closet looking clean and organized and save you the hassle of a fitted sheet folding headache!
