How To Fold a Fitted Sheet

Fitted sheets are an essential part of any bedding set, however, they can be challenging to fold and store due to their unique shape. Unlike flat sheets, which are one large piece of fabric that is draped over the mattress and tucked in at the sides, fitted sheets are tailored to fit a specific mattress size.

In this blog, we provide a simple process for folding fitted sheets. Our step-by-step instructions make it easy for you to master the technique and keep your linen closet organized at all times. 

  1. Hold two opposite corners of your fitted sheet, one in each hand
  2. Flip the sheet inside out, so that the elasticized edges are facing up
  3. Insert your hands into the corners of the sheet, holding the elasticized edges
  4. Bring the right-hand corner of the sheet over the left-hand corner, and tuck the corner into the pocket formed by the elastic
  5. Take the corners on the opposite side and straighten them out
  6. Repeat step 4, fold the right-hand corner of your sheet over the left-hand corner

  8. Find a flat surface and lay the sheet down
