How To Fold A Fitted Sheet
Do you know to fold a fitted sheet - do you really know how? It is a mystery to me on why we can never fold the fitted sheet back into the nice little rectangle that once was for easy storage. You can ask my husband - he has no idea on how to fold it either. He just makes a nice rolled up balled up mess that he calls folded and then puts it away in our linen closet. I can go over to friends homes and sneak a peek at their linen closet and once again not a folded fitted sheet in sight. Just a big old mess. My dear sweet grandma should me long ago - how to fold a fitted sheet. Here is my lesson to you - and yes I am going to teach my husband once again on how to fold the fitted sheet and this time I hope he remembers.

Enjoy and happy folding correctly,
Tissuepapers

This is a great tutorial! I just tried it and it works perfectly. The only problem is, now I won't be able to tell which sheets are the fitted ones until I unfold them :-0 LOL
