My method of dealing with sheet folding is simply not to do it. I have one set of high thread count sheets. Every Monday morning I remove them, wash and dry, then at some point before we go to bed, I put them back on. With the time I save not folding sheets, I iron my pillowcases. Mmm…nothing like a crisp, freshly ironed pillowcase, gently scented with Downy. However, I realize that some people like to change to different sheets or perhaps have a baby or toddler sleeping with them and we all know they occasionally “leak”, necessitating unplanned bedding changes. If, for whatever reason, you find yourself in need of folding one of those dastardly fitted sheets, here is how you do it:
Easy, huh? Granted, this guy makes a pretty big production out of it but honestly, once you’ve done it a couple of times, it only takes a minute or less to have a very neatly folded sheet. Personally, I’d suggest showing this to your husband and suggesting that it is a manly task beyond the spacial capabilities of a mere woman. Bat your lashes when you say it and you just might be able to cross one regular task off your list.

My Mom taught me to fold just like this…probably 30 years ago, so maybe I at least learned SOMETHING!

My mom taught me to fold them in half, tuck the two corners and then fold the rounded edges in (three sides) and go from there. She was particular about folding neatly and it can certainly be done that way but tucking all four corners first is better and easier.
