How do you fold a fitted sheet?
We’re answering the age-old question: how do you fold a fitted sheet?
We know the struggle of trying to fold a fitted sheet. (We’ve all been there!)
The springy fabric can be unpredictable and at times leave some feeling lost and confused. Lucky for you, we’re here to show you an easy, handy folding technique. After all, knowing is half the battle!
What is a fitted sheet?
From top to bottom, it can be difficult to know how to assemble your bed and where to place bedding like fitted sheets. On a mattress, the fitted sheet has stretchy elastic corners and can be found just below the top sheet. Secured over the mattress, the purpose behind the fitted sheet is to give your bed an added layer of protection.
How to Fold a Fitted Sheet
Tons of sleepers don’t know how to fold fitted sheets but now you don’t have to be one of them. Remember these six easy steps to fold a fitted sheet every time you do laundry!
Step 1: Lay it Flat
First, lay your fitted sheet flat and flip it over so that the side with the elastic corners is facing upwards. Now, you’re all set to fold!
Step 2: The Half Fold
Next, on one of the long sides of the sheet, fold the edge to the center of the sheet. Do the same with the remaining unfolded side.
Step 3: Tuck It All In
Now that your sheet is folded in half, proceed to tuck the top corners of the sheet into the bottom corners.
Step 4: Fold it Up
With your corners properly tucked, proceed to fold the sheet in half lengthwise again.
Step 5: From Top to Bottom
Much like before in Step 3, grab the top corners of the sheet and tuck them securely into the bottom corners.
Step 6: Final Fold
Lastly, fold your fitted sheet in half or thirds to fit your desired size. Voila, you’re done! Now, you can fold a fitted sheet with your eyes closed.
