How to Fold Fitted Sheets

Folding fitted sheets can be a daunting task, with their elastic edges and unique shape. But with a few simple steps, you can master the art of folding fitted sheets and keep your linen closet looking neat and organized. In this guide, we'll walk you through a step-by-step process to fold fitted sheets like a pro, whether they're traditional bedding or eco-friendly Fresh Blend Sheets.

  1. Start by holding the sheet lengthwise: Grab your fitted sheet and hold it lengthwise so that the shorter edges are on the sides. Make sure the sheet is inside out, with the elastic facing you.

  2. Tuck one corner into the other: Take the top right corner of the sheet and fold it down, tucking it into the top left corner. You should now have the two corners aligned with each other, creating a straight edge on the top.

  3. Repeat with the bottom corners: Now, move to the bottom of the sheet and tuck the bottom right corner into the bottom left corner, just as you did with the top corners. You should have a straight edge along the bottom as well.

  4. Fold the sheet in half: Bring the top corners down to meet the bottom corners, folding the sheet in half lengthwise. Tuck the top corners into the bottom corners, so you now have all four corners aligned and tucked into each other. This will create a rectangular shape with a straight edge on the top and bottom.

  5. Straighten the edges: Lay the folded sheet on a flat surface, like a bed or table. Smooth out any wrinkles and adjust the edges to create clean, straight lines.

  6. Fold the sheet into thirds: Start by folding one side of the sheet (the side without the elastic) into the center. Then, fold the other side over the first, covering the elastic and creating a neat, flat rectangle.

  7. Fold the sheet in half: Finally, fold the sheet in half widthwise to create a compact, tidy square. Smooth out any remaining wrinkles, and you're done!

Folding fitted sheets doesn't have to be a frustrating chore. By following these simple steps, you can keep your linen closet organized and make laundry day a breeze. Plus, taking care of your sheets, whether they're traditional bedding or innovative Fresh Blend Sheets, will help ensure they stay in great condition for years to come. Happy folding!
