Wow, something so simple can go a long way! Thank you for showing me this. This will make my linen closet look way better!

I’m doing laundry today and have a few sheets to fold. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks again for sharing. I shamefully had to admit to my mother in law that I really didn’t know how to fold a fitted sheet well. Fortunately she’s not typical of what you hear about mothers-in-law (whew!) .That looks awesome :). I’m going to need to watch it again to try and get it so good.

You have inspired me to try this again. I have never been successful folding fitted sheets and just sort of wad it up into a squarish shape. I will try to put all the corners together next time.

Holy crap! That’s amazing! Thanks!

That could possibly be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. My fitted sheets have always been wadded up and thrown into a cubby because I had no idea what to do with them. :) Thanks!

Thanks for this very helpful video tutorial. I’ve always started off with putting the first two corners together like you did, but then didn’t know what to do next. In the end, I always had a sheet that folded up in a sort-of neat way. Now I know how to finish the job!

WOW! Really?! I had no idea…I thought you just laid it out on the floor…tried to get it folded somewhat reasonably…got frustrated, wadded it up and stuffed it in a pillowcase. ;)

Thank you for the tutorial! I can’t wait to amaze everyone at my house with this!

When I was 12, my sisters and I were in a laundromat doing the family laundry and I happened to see a woman actually folding her fitted sheets, just like this, and so I asked her if she would show me how to do it; she did and 45 years later I am still able to fold my fitted sheets.

Thank you for this great video as now so many other folks can now see how to fold their fitted sheets, something that has driven many folks crazy.

Ooooh……THANK YOU!!!! This will help a lot. I’ve never seen a tutorial I could FOLLOW on this. But this one? I think I can do this. *grin*

I am confused…people don’t know how to do this? I thought everyone folded their sheets like this. How else would you do it?

Thanks so much for sharing!

I did it! Woohooo! I always have a bundled heap but I followed your instructions and it came out great! My linen closet will look nice again. Thanks!

The easiest way is to just wash the sheets and put them right on the bed. That way one doesn’t have to worry about folding them nicely. However, I’m going to be washing sheets today so will try this. Great tutorial ~ thanks, Kelsey!
