Folding and Storing Sheets

Ok, so folding sheets is not the most glamorous of subjects but…If you have beds, you have sheets. And unless you just leave your sheets on the beds until they disintegrate, you will have to wash, fold and store them somewhere. The top sheet is basic. I don’t think that you all need any help there. Fold it in half lengthwise, then lengthwise again. But the bottom sheet, that is trickier. At least if you want to get it somewhat flat.



We first go to fold the sheet corner to corner. But instead of matching them up you employ the trick. Take the 2nd corner, flip it inside out and fit it inside your first corner. Then straighten out the corner.

Then fold the sheet in half width wise, once again inverting 1 corner and tucking it up in the other. Square off your edges and continue folding the sheet just like you would a top sheet! 

Then stack up all your folded components. You could stop there but I take it one step further. I place the folded sheets (and any extra pillow cases) all into 1 pillow case. It makes it easy to grab and go change beds. No more digging through the linen closet to find the matching sheet or pillow case. Especially in the middle of the night when someone has thrown up in their beds;). Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
