6 Steps to Fold Fitted Sheet Easy

To fold fitted sheets can be tricky, but it’s easy when you follow these six simple steps, and I’ll tell you if I learned it you can learn it too!

You see, 12 years ago when I met my husband I was the most undomesticated person you could have ever met. I was single, always working and taking care of the home was the last thing on my mind. Did I say I was a workaholic?


However, after moving to the US things changed dramatically and well, I had to dive in and learn. And, doing the laundry was just one of the things I had to learn – from where to put the laundry detergent and how to turn the washer on, to using drying sheets and folding the laundry. And, if you’re curious – I’m totally domesticated now! LOL

A couple of shrank sweatshirts and pants and many, many loads later I can tell you we all survived!

The Laundry

I change our bedding weekly, and it goes to the washer the very next day, first thing in the morning. Because I work from home many days of the week, I can fit it in my schedule nicely by loading it in the washer as soon as I wake up. OK, right after my first sip of coffee!

If you don’t work from home, reverse it to the evenings or do it Saturday morning – after a nice breakfast!


It takes about 1 hour to wash, and I’ll be half-way our morning routine, and I’ll move it to the dryer. By the time I’m back from taking the boys to school it will be dry and ready to fold.

I do it right away, first, because it’s a lot easier to do it when it’s still warm from the dryer and second because the pain of folding it later when is cold and wrinkled convinces me that postponing is not worth it. 🙂

The Bones of a Beautiful Room

    You make it look so easy! I got so fed up with badly folded and poorly fitting fitted sheets that I went back to flat ones.
