How To Fold a Fitted Sheet...no more ball of sheets!
I'm sure we all have the same problem when it comes time to was dry and FOLD our fitted sheets (sheets with the elastic that fit onto the mattress). Every time i try to fold the fitted sheet, it ends up in a ball of mess! I have finally found a step by step to follow to get these darn things folded and not looking like a ball of messiness!
1. Drape the sheet over you hands (one corner in each hand), with the top two corners inside out and the elastic facing you.
2. Fold the sheet in a half vertically flipping the right corner over to the left creating a pocket and tuck in the corners. Turn the sheet 180 degrees and create a second pocket up top.
3. Fold in half again. readjust yourself and make it so that 2 corners are in your left hand and 2 corners are in your right hand, with the folded seam at the bottom and the tucked and gathered edge facing you. Fold the sheet in half one more time so that all 4 fitted corners are in one hand.
4. Lay the sheet either on your bed or a flat surface with the gathered edges facing up. Fold the longer part of the curved edge to the center just a couple inches so you can get a straight edge. Now your sheet should be rectangle, fold in half lengthwise and then fold into thirds.
