Watch Our Video To Learn How to (Finally) Fold A Fitted Sheet

Adulthood, it’s a tricky business, isn’t it? As we grew up, bucket loads of information was chucked at us from every direction and our eager selves learnt how to tie our shoelaces and tell the time. As we got older, we realised, there was still more to learn. In fact, the truth of the matter is, it’s the simplest of tasks that have us well and truly stumped. This brings us to one of life’s most confusing and confounding challenges: how the hell do you fold a fitted sheet?

We set out to solve this life mystery and share with you a video with step-by-step instructions of how to fold a fitted sheet. 


Disclaimer: This task is not for the faint-hearted. Give it a few tries before giving up (you can thank us later).  

Step One:

Pick up your sheet and turn it inside out. Straighten your arms so that each hand is in a corner of the fitted sheet.  

Step Two:

Take your right hand and right corner and place it over the left and then shake it out!

Step Three:

Run your hand along the seam (look left) and find the third corner with your right hand. Repeat the step above!

Step Four:

Take the fourth corner and repeat! (this step is a bit tricky, be careful not to get too tangled!)

Step Five:

Place the sheet on a hard surface and fold in elastic edges so that your corners are sharp.

Step Six:

Fold inwards, repeat until you have your in-furniture-store-display-worthy, neat, fitted folded sheet.
