How do you fold a fitted sheet?


I get asked almost daily "how do you fold a fitted sheet?"   Most people have tried to fold one but very few know the correct way to fold this odd-shaped sheet. I thought I would dedicate this week's blog to showing you how I fold my fitted sheets.


Step 1 - choose a large and flat area to spread out your fitted sheet.

Step 2 - Take one side and fold into the middle of the sheet so you have a clean straight edge and repeat on the other side.

Step 3 - Take the bottom and fold in as shown here.

Step 4 - Do the same for the other end – so you have four straight sides.

Step 5 - Start on one side and start to fold in towards the center, do the same for the other side.

Step 6 - Once you have brought the sides together in the middle, take one side of the sheet and fold on top of the other.

Step 7 - Taking 1 side, start folding in quarters toward one side until you reach the end.

Step 8 - After folding, this is how your sheet should look and ready to be put away until you need it again.


I hope this has helped in taking the guess work out of folding that fitted sheet the next time it comes out of the dryer

If you have any bedding dilemmas or questions, I would love to hear from you and hopefully I can solve them for you.

As always - Have a great week
