Folding Fitted Sheets Made Easy
Dated: August 15 2019
There are few things I dislike more than wrestling with fitted sheets to get them folded neatly. Then there's the difficulty of recognizing which is the folded sheet and which is the flat one (at least recognizing it before the sheet is unfolded! Ha!) Along comes Marie Kondo and this amazingly simple procedure for managing this process.
There are countless videos on folding fitted sheets, but most of them are as easy as assembling furniture. Which is to say, they leave you with extra parts, some big gaps, and probably slightly crooked product.
Forget about sticking your hands through two corners of the sheet, inside-out, then tucking the right corner into the left and criss-crossing them and flipping the whole thing around. That was the gist of one so-called easy solution.
Marie Kondo to the rescue. Kondo, of "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" fame and star of a hit Netflix show, has a method that is really, truly doable. Spoiler alert: she doesn't even TRY to make the thing flat.
Here are Kondo's steps to folding a fitted sheet:
Find a good surface to lay the sheet onto.
Make sure the elastic is facing up, then fold the sheet in thirds -- one long side into the center, then bring the other side across it. You'll have a long rectangle.
Now fold the sheet in half width-wise (left to right as you face it).
Drumroll please: now you ROLL it. Roll it from one short side to the other until you have a compact cylinder. If you're familiar with Kondo's style, this makes sense. The little sushi sheet can essentially stand on its own and will fit neatly into a drawer.
Finally, brag about your new skill.
