Décor Q&A: Folding a Fitted Sheet?


The Nest Q&A

How do I fold a fitted sheet? They never come out right.


Here's an easy four-step solution: Spread out the sheet with the elastic facing up and all edges folded in. Next, fold the sheet in half (bottom to top) and place the two bottom corners inside the two top corners. Then smooth out the sheet so that it resembles a semicircle. Fold the sheet in half horizontally, turning it over so the elastic corners are on the bottom. Your last step: Fold the sheet into thirds, horizontally. Then fold it in thirds lengthwise. Voila -- You should have a perfect square!
