Store your newly-laundered sheets more efficiently!

Folding a fitted bed sheet is probably one of the most cumbersome chores you have to do, especially since it’s a huge, irregular piece of fabric that’s quite unwieldly. These Tiktok users, however, have managed to get this task down pat with two folding techniques you can easily do:

Technique #1 (from Tiktok user @kristinalburn)

Spread the sheet on a flat surface, then grab the bottom corners, turning them inside-out over your hands and inserting them into the top corners. Shake the sheet out a bit and lay it back on the surface (with the corners on top). Tug flatten it out a little, before folding the top edge down to hide the garters. Fold the bottom edge upward, then the left and right edges to the center, before folding the whole thing in half. Easy-peasy!

Technique #2 (from Tiktok user @thecrazyone198)

Insert your hands into two garterized corners of the sheet. Overlap one corner on another by turning it inside-out. Straighten the sheet up a bit and do the overlapping one or two more times until it’s folded into itself and it’s small enough for you to comfortably lay it on a surface. Fold in the irregular corners, then fold again into a size perfect for storage.

Bonus tip: not folding it at all (from Tiktok user @karlisms)

This “wash-and-wear” tip involves not having to fold your fitted sheet at all, and instead putting it directly on your mattress (which should have a cover) while it’s still damp (but not dripping). Since the sheet is spread out, it dries faster. You can also spread out your top sheet on it! Take note, though, that this hack works best during dry, hot months, and in a room with proper air circulation. Hanging your sheets to dry under the sun is still the optimum choice, as its UV rays can help disinfect them, too!
