Watch the video below to learn how to fold a fitted sheet.
Take out your just-out-of-the-dryer sheet. Locate all four corners of the fitted sheet while holding it lengthwise.
Turn your sheet inside out and insert one hand inside each corner, precisely at the seams. Your hands should now be within the top two corners of the sheet, and the sheet’s opening should now face your body.
With your right hand on your left, grasp the corner of the sheet and turn it over to the left. Adjust the two until they are in line. You should now have both corners in your left hand.

Run your hand down the sheet’s front-facing edge. Take the third corner and tuck the first and second inside (note: the third corner should be facing inside-out).
Place your hand within the seams of the final corner. Bring your right hand to your left and repeat Step 3. Flip the corner by grabbing it by the seam.
Tuck the corners of the fitted sheet into one another by adjusting and straightening it. The elasticized margins should be in the shape of a “L.”
