How to Fold a Fitted Sheet

February 21, 2012

As the guy who is about to give you this life-changing video will say, “no more puffy wads” with your fitted sheets! While I think every gal should know how to fold a fitted sheet — simply because it makes your linen closet look way nicer and you avoid a million wrinkles when you put the sheet on your bed — I get the sense not all of us know how to do so. Personally, mine are typically a balled embarrassment…. until now. Check out this less than three-minute tutorial by a dude (if he can do it, so can I!) about how to fold a fitted sheet. I’m inspired. Let’s make Martha Stewart (and ourselves!) proud.

    This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing. I will definitely be trying this but I will probably still disappoint Martha!

    Bless you…I’ve always struggled with those darn fitted sheets!

  • TA

    I’ve never really had to fold one before because I only have one set of sheets! It makes for trouble if I forget them in the wash though. :/

    I learned how to do this some time ago, and I can’t for the life of me remember where- but man this is such a great skill to show off to your boyfriend’s mother or mother-in-law! I was doing the laundry one day and folding my fitted sheet, and she was just staring at me in awe, she had never seen such a wonderous thing! lol!! Well, it felt nice to get a lot of praise from her for that. I think folding fitted sheets is a weird guilty pleasure of mine…

    I needed this so badly! I am ashamed of my fitted sheet folding ability.


  • Shannon

    That is amazing. The man deserves an award and I feel like an idiot for not figuring that out on my own.
