Folding a fitted sheet can be a bit of a nightmare if you don’t know what you’re doing. Luckily, we’ve put together a quick 4-step guide to help make the process (slightly) easier, so you can tick this tricky chore off your list and get on with your day!
Lay the fitted sheet on a flat surface, find two corners and tuck them in to the opposite corners. Then, tuck in the elastic and neaten the overall shape to form a rectangle.
Find two corners again and repeat the tuck one more time so that all four corners of the sheet are in the same place. Lay the sheet down to form a rectangle with an L-shaped fold.
Fold the sheet into thirds horizontally, so you are left with a long strip of fabric, smoothing as you go. Then, fold it into thirds along the strip to form the sheet into a small square.
And that’s it! You’ve now mastered folding a fitted sheet. This is incredibly tricky, and even those that know how to do it don’t get it right 100% of the time. If you’d like to make yourself feel better about your own efforts, check out the video below to see how it can go wrong even when a professional like the Bedshed stylist Clare Ryan is in charge!
