Folding fitted sheets is often the bane of laundry day. Sometimes it seems impossible to get right. Fitted sheets often end up in a ball, taking up more space in the drawer than they would if they were folded flat. The balled-up sheet can get wrinkly, and even more difficult to put on the bed. There is a way to fold fitted sheets so that they lie flat, and it's not too hard to learn.


1. How Do You Fold a Fitted Sheet?

To fold a fitted sheet, follow these steps:

  1. Put your hands inside the corners of the sheet.
  2. Bring the two vertical corners together and flip one over the other.
  3. Do the same to the other corners.
  4. Lay the sheet on a flat surface. With the corners tucked into one another, the sheet should lay flat.
  5. Fold it in half twice.
