Fitted sheets are great on the bed, but can be tricky to fold. Here's how.
Turn the Sheet Inside Out
Hold up the sheet, inside out, and slip your hands inside the top two corners. The wrong side of the fabric should be facing you and the right side should be touching your hands.
Spread Out the Sheet
Carefully lay the sheet down on a large, flat surface — such as a table, or the top of a bed — so it is spread out smoothly. Fold the sheet right side together, slipping the top corners gently inside the two bottom corners. Arrange the corners neatly.
Fold the Edges to the Inside
Fold the sheet edges to the inside. The flaps of fabric that hug the mattress should be neatly folded down in line with the corners, making a large rectangle with all loose edges tucked in smoothly.
