If you like keeping your cupboards nice and tidy and care about sloppily folded clothes, then this video tutorial by Andrea Jean Cleaning, on YouTube, is one you won’t want to miss. Fitted sheets can be such a difficult thing to store neatly because they are extremely difficult to fold due to all that elastic gathering. Although all of that elastic gathering can be great for making the sheet fit, and stay on the bed, it can definitely be a hindrance if you are trying to neatly fold it and store it in the linen cupboard. I had never really watched anyone fold a fitted sheet, to make me realize how easy the whole process could actually be. Luckily, in this video tutorial, you will see just how to fold this kind of difficult sheet, and the key tucking steps will blow your mind. You will be thinking, how silly it was to think this kind of folding was hard in the first place.
First, you will lay your fitted sheet out flat, with the elasticated gathered part to the inside:
Then you will use an ingenious tucking method to make the sheet flat and workable. The instructions are so easy, I could not believe I had never thought of this.
This is such a wonderful idea, I am so glad I found this helpful tutorial.
