Fitted sheets. Those delightful guardians of your mattress comfort can morph into storage nightmares in the blink of an eye. Fear not, fellow sheet-wranglers! Here’s a quick and easy guide to folding a fitted sheet like a pro.

The Hula Method: Simple and Speedy

  1. Grab the sheet by its short ends, laying it flat on your bed with the elasticized edges meeting in the center.
  2. Fold the sheet into thirds widthwise.
  3. Repeat step 2, folding the sheet into thirds lengthwise once, then again widthwise. You should now have a neat rectangle.

Bonus Tip: Want a more compact fold? Give the rectangle one final lengthwise fold.

The “Magic Hands” Method: A Fun Twist

For those who enjoy a bit more action, this method utilizes a hand-syncing technique.

  1. Turn the sheet inside-out and lay it flat.
  2. Place your hands inside the corner pockets along the sheet’s long side.
  3. Bring your hands together, palms facing, so the corner seams touch.
  4. Fold the right corner over the left and switch hands.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 with the corners on the opposite side. You should now have a square-ish shape.
  6. Straighten the edges and fold the square into thirds lengthwise, then into a neat rectangle.

No matter your method, practice makes perfect! With a little time, you’ll be folding fitted sheets like a champ, saving precious storage space and conquering that linen closet chaos.
