Love Q&A: Husband Always Taking The Top Sheet?


My husband always pulls the top sheet up so that it slips out the bottom of the bed and looks sloppy. How can I make the bed look neater?


Its all about "foot fold." This bed-making move used by many top hotel's allows the sheets to look neat, while providing comfort. Place your flat sheet on top of the fitted sheet so that the top edge goes nearly to the head of the bed. At the foot of the bed, pick up an edge of the top sheet about a foot from the bottom and fold it back over itself (toward the bottom of the bed) six to eight inches to creat a pocket-like fold for your feet. You'll move the top edge of the sheet down to a normal position-a foot or so from the head of the bed-and then you can tuck it along the sides of the mattress.
