Folding Bedsheets Mastery: Step-by-Step Guide
Fold the Fitted Sheet in Half: With the wrong sides facing each other, tuck the elastic corners neatly inside one another.
Fold in Half Again: Repeat the tucking process. Then, lay it out on your chosen surface, smoothing it into a square or rectangle, depending on your sheet size.
Thirds or Fourths: For the fitted sheet, fold it lengthwise in thirds.
If you’re dealing with a larger set, consider folding it into fourths – top quarter down, bottom quarter up, then fold in half.
The Final Fold: Now, fold it in thirds the other way.
Flat Sheet Time: Fold your flat sheet to match the size of the fitted sheet and stack them.
