For those of us who like to stay organized, storing clean bedding is routine maintenance when it comes to housework. However, the vision of securely wrapped, tightly packed linens usually doesn’t turn out due to one perpetrator—the fitted sheet.
Unlike the rest of your bed sheets with sharp rectangular corners, the corners of a fitted sheet are rounded and gathered over an elastic band. This design allows the sheet to grip the bottom of your mattress and stay put throughout the night. Effective? Yes. Easy to fold and store? Not if you’re doing it wrong. We’ll teach you how to fold a fitted sheet correctly for effortless, organized storage. (While you're here, take a look at our guide at the best white bed sheet sets on the market right now!)
