How to Fold a Fitted Sheet?
We’ll show you how to fold a fitted sheet featuring elastic in under 60 seconds in five easy stages. First, you’ll need a level surface and your fitted sheet (like a table, a counter, or your bed).
Pro tip: To eliminate wrinkles that appear while your fitted sheet stays scrunched up, fold it soon after it comes out of the dryer.
STEP 1 – Hold the sheet
Place your palms in the corners with the longer length of the fitted sheet over your chest and the top side of the cloth facing you.
STEP 2 – NOW TUCK THE CORNERS
Take one edge in each hand and insert it into another corner. Then, on the opposite end, repeat the tuck. Your fitted sheet has now been folded in half.
STEP 3 – WE NOW REPEAT THE TUCK
Continue the tuck with your fingers in the corners another time until all four corners of the fitted sheet are tucked.
STEP 4 – LAY THE SHEET DOWN
Lay the fitted sheet on a table, tabletop, or flatbed. A C-shape should be visible in the cloth.
STEP 5 – FOR THE LAST STEP, YOU NOW FOLD IN THIRDS
Fold the outer edges inwards, flattening the cloth as you go. Fold in thirds in the other way. You’re done when you flip it over!
Why Should You Fold Your Fitted Sheets Properly?
Here are five reasons why your fitted sheet should be folded neatly:
- It will not wrinkle in the future, which is a great way to go about with your fitted sheet.
- Your linen closet will gain a lot of room without your fitted sheet taking up unnecessary space.
- Your spare fitted sheets are easily found in the linen cupboard, which is well-organized.
- Your roommates, friends, and, most importantly, your mother-in-law will be impressed with how organized your fitted sheets look.
- You will feel more accomplished as a result of your efforts.
How to Properly Organize Your Linen Closet
When you try to get bed linens sorted by type—fitted sheets piled next to pillow cases—they rapidly become disorganized when you attempt to put together matching sets. So instead, try this method: Place each set in one of its pillowcases and sort the sets by size (twin, full, etc.) with colors, trim, and other distinguishing characteristics.
Everything is apparent in the ideal linen closet. Seasonal products, including baskets of beach towels, are all on the top and bottom shelves, easily accessible. Drawers provide an extra layer of protection for precious vintage linens. Grouping linens by size and the area they’re used in saves time; the stacks are set apart, allowing linens to breathe and making it easier to locate what you need.
You should be proud of yourself now because you know how to fold a fitted sheet. And don’t be disappointed if you don’t get it correct the first few times. You’ll be an expert if you keep practicing, and in no time, you might as well teach others how to fold a fitted sheet!
Finally, your gut health may improve if you sleep on your side. This posture improves the operation of your digestive system, which can assist with gastrointestinal ailments, including heartburn, constipation, and discomfort.
