Fitted sheets are like temperamental toddlers that scream for no reason. Fortunately, there is a way to tame the fitted sheet

  • Turn the fitted sheet inside out and lengthwise then fold the corners in together.
  • Make sure to place the right corner over the left corner.
  • Bring the front bottom corner up to the top with the other corners.
  • Grab the remaining corner and fold it over the other corners, straightening the edges of the sheet.
  • Now, place the sheet down with the folded corners facing up.
  • Make a rectangular shape by folding the sides in.
