Pin of the Day: How to fold a fitted sheet


Home hints are a bit like this for me: I'm obsessed with them. I read them. I collect them. I think "this will change my home life". And then... I do nothing. So, even though I now know how to fold a fitted sheet thanks to this pin.  And even though I also know take a pillow case and put the matching sheets and extra pillow case inside that pillow case and neatly line all the sheet sets up in a row in my linen cupboard... I don't do that. Instead, I prefer to bundle everything up into a giant mess and shove it into the linen cupboard with all the other giant messes.

But hey. You might be a fitted sheet folder and you might like this.

How's your linen cupboard doing?

Although mine doesnt look that neat. It is exactly how I do it! Goes back to forever ago when I was still in school and I saw my friends mum folding her sheets.

Hi Maxabella...to be honest it's a mess at the moment. I am seriously rethinking the whole system as the linen cabinet is just outside my son's bedroom and he leaves things in front of it so it becomes inaccessable. When this happens towels and other linen gets piled up on top of the cupboard..not inside it..what the??

In NYC because most apartments don't have washing machines and dryers, they have drop off laundromats. And they are the best things ever.
You drop off you laundry...including sheets...and it all comes back to you clean and perfectly folded!
Needless to say, the last time my fitted sheets were folded like this was in NYC...when someone did my laundry for me!

I have this little tutorial cut out of a mag and stashed... somewhere. I can never remember the steps. But oh when I do it right I love it. Love the neatness of properly folded linen. Although if I was to describe my linen closet at this moment the word I would use is shamozzle.

'Home hints are a bit like this for me: I'm obsessed with them. I read them. I collect them. I think "this will change my home life". And then... I do nothing.' - story.of.my.life. Linen cupboard's a shambles, but it's all behind a closed door so no-one need ever know!

My linen cupboard looks like crap. I have learned how to fold a fitted sheet before (mine never ends up that neat) but I have never before heard about putting the sheets and extra pillow case inside a pillow case. That's gold!! I'm gonna do that (she says inside her own mind ... but will it pan out in practice?)

Ohh I actually appreciate this post because I always get the shits with my fitted sheets and either wait for husband to come home or just shove the stupid thing in the linen cupboard so when I use it next I have massive wrinkles to lay on! Or better yet wait till my OCD mum visits haha

Wow! That would seriously revolutionise my Linen cupboard, which in all truth is so full of big messes I can hardly close the door to it and have taken to folding spare blankets and quilts up and "artfully" displaying them on chairs about the house rather than risk the door actually falling off, again.
But in reality it will only ever remain a theory.

Is it just me... Isn't life a bit too short to fold sheets properly? I roll them any old how, flatten them a bit so they look 'neat', and chuck them in the linen cupboard. I do like my towels folded nicely, but as long as everything's clean, I figure I could use my time to do something else!

Gloat alert: I was taught how to fold a fitted sheet by a man who made hats for Jimi Hendrix. So there! (Though I never did find out if Jimi was a flat-sheet folding pro...)

That's gorgeous "The Kitchen Maid'
Personally - the rest of my house can be a shambles, but if my linen cupboard and plastics drawers are OK - I can function.
To keep everything together, when I organise things I put the pillow cases and fitted sheet inside the flat folded sheet, folded edge facing out, makes it easy to grab and run (four kids, I'm usually on a mission lol!). You can put the sheets into a pillow case, but this way works for us :)

I think I have that pinned as well but I always just roll the sheets and pillowcases into a big messy bundle. I don't think I could stand a whole cupboard full of messy bundles but since I keep each person's sheets on the top shelf of the wardrobe I don't have to. A single messy bundle in the wardrobe is much easier to ignore.
