Mitering a Sheet
Mitering a sheet bottom keeps it snug and sharp beneath the bed covers.
Center the flat sheet on the bed, and tuck the bottom of the sheet underneath the mattress. Grab the trailing edge of the sheet, about 2 feet from the corner of the sheet, to make a 45-degree angle away from the mattress corner and pull toward you.
Still holding on to the sheet, pull it up vertically to form a triangle (the sheet should fold at a 45-degree angle).
Lay the triangle of sheet onto the bed, then tuck the bottom part of the sheet under the mattress. Building in this tucked fabric is the secret to a well-mitered, taut-fitting sheet.
Drop the triangle of sheet down toward the floor, then tuck it under the mattress to form a mitered corner. Smooth the hanging sheet bottom underneath the mattress, all the way to head of the bed. Repeat on the other side of the bed.
Designate a color, pattern or style of sheet for each bed, and you’ll know at a glance which belongs to which.
