Don't feel bad if you still haven't mastered folding fitted sheets: According to Google, 27,000 people a month search for "how to fold a fitted sheet." Even the most meticulous folders seem to struggle with them. Though you'd think they're just not meant to be shaped into a tidy square in your linen closet, lifestyle guru and Landcruisers columnist Clinton Kelly knows otherwise. We're so thankful he's shared this information with us. Perhaps we're even more thankful that folding fitted sheets can be accomplished in three truly easy steps.
Step 1: Tuck the corners from one side of the fitted sheet (yes, all fitted sheets have corners, despite how tricky they are to find) into the corners on the opposite side, point to point. Repeat with the other set of corners. By now, your fitted sheet should more closely resemble a flat sheet, just a little bunchier.
Step 2: Much like step 1, we're back to tucking in corners. This time, tuck one set of corners into the opposite set of corners. Less bunchy now, right?
Step 3: Fold in the two elastic sides to create straight edges. Then, you can go ahead and fold as you would a flat sheet. And voila: that neat square you never thought was possible. It took Clinton about 60 seconds to do it in the video above, which means that with a little practice, you can do it in way less time, since you won't be explaining the process to eager students.
