How many loads of laundry do you fold each week!? We’re definitely in the double digits! The craziest thing, my favorite laundry to fold is sheets because it looks like a lot when tossed on the couch, but is so fast to fold. Do you know how to fold a fitted sheet?! Like most tasks in life, a system makes it so manageable. Here are Six Simple Steps to Folding Fitted Sheets! Once you start you’ll never go back…
Step One. Slip both hands into two adjacent, inside-out corners of the longer side of the fitted sheet.
Step Two. Bring these sides together and tuck the folds together so that the right side of fabric is showing. Two sides down – two sides to go.
Step Three. Continue holding the tucked side in one hand and use your other hand to tuck the other two sides hanging together.
Step Four. Bring the two doubled sides together so that all four tucked corners are folded neatly together.
Step Five. Lay the folded fitted sheet on a flat surface, fold in the elastic edges, and straighten out any wrinkles.
Step Six. Continue folding until the fitted sheet is in the rectangle size you prefer in your linen closet.
It really is that simple and folding fitted sheets in a predictable way makes the task of putting it on the mattress so much easier!
And if you want to take it an extra step like my mom does, store the entire folded set inside one of the pillow cases!
