How many times have you grabbed an elasticated sheet from the dryer and tried to put it away neatly? Its nothing like a flat sheet, which is so easy to have sit inside your linen cupboard looking organised.

How many times have you ended up scrunching it up into a relatively tidy (!) ball, and stuffing it into the cupboard? This means not only having a messy space, but also not being able to store as much in the cupboard because the rolled up sheets take up loads of room.

Well there is an easier way!  Read on! We have a step by step guide on how to fold a fitted sheet.....

Step 2 – Put Bottom Corners Into Top Corners

Take the 2 corners that are at the bottom and fold up and into the top 2 corners so that the seams align. Your bottom 2 corners will turn inside out. Stick your finger in the corner (from the outside) and simply push them up into the top 2 corners.  Make sure you align the seams here. This is how you will get the perfect flat fold!

Step 3 – Fold Into A Long Rectangle

You now have a much more rectangular shaped sheet to work from. You can probably see the square is starting to form here. This step is to fold the sheet so that you get a long rectangular shape to work with at the end. You may need to fold more than once to get the right shape. Fold both the top and the bottom into the center.
