How to fold a fitted sheet
Posted by The Canningvale Team on 23rd Dec 2021
Do your attempts to fold a fitted sheet look like you’ve tried to stuff a body in the closet? 🙈 🙉 🙈
If you're tired of guests asking awkward questions, check out the step-by-step instructions below from the amazing @stilettos_and_bricks and @liz.amaya.style
On a flat surface, lay out the fitted sheet with the elastic band facing upwards.
Pick up the bottom corners of the fitted sheet and turn them inside out (so that the edge seams are facing outwards).
Place one hand in each of the bottom corners and tuck them into the top two corners (ensure they are aligned).
Fold the left side of the sheet into the centre.
Fold the right side of the sheet into the centre – you should be left with a rectangle.
Fold the top half of the sheet to the centre. Then fold the bottom half of the sheet to the centre.
Fold both edges into the middle to create a smaller rectangle.
Fold into equal thirds to give you a neat and tidy rectangle!
How to store sheet sets in your linen closet
To save time searching through the linen closet for matching sheets and pillowcases, @stilettos_and_bricks stores everything together in one neat bundle.
Want to steal her style? Simply place the matching flat sheet, one pillowcase and fitted sheet together into a bundle, then put them inside the second matching pillowcase.
Once the sheet set is cased inside, fold the pillowcase in half – and it's ready to go into your linen cupboard!
How'd you go? Create the perfect folded fitted sheet, or simply scrunch it up into a giant ball and throw it in the back of of the closet? Be sure to share your success (and woes) with us @Canningvalelove
