There are few household chores more notoriously frustrating than folding a fitted sheet. The elastic band and billowy corners on these bad boys make them ridiculously difficult to corral and fold neatly, and often, we end up just crumpling them up into a ball and shoving them to the back of our linen closets. Sigh.
Thankfully, organizational guru Marie Kondo (you know her as the author of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and the star of Netflix’s hit show Tidying Up With Marie Kondo) stopped by to show us the best way to overcome this all-too-common laundry struggle: With her KonMari Method, folding a fitted sheet is as easy as following these five simple steps.
Step 1: Set up your fitted-sheet folding workspace.
Lay out the fitted sheet on a completely flat surface, elastic band facing up.
Step 2: Make the first folds.
Fold the sheet in thirds lengthwise by bringing one long side in across the center, then the other. This step should leave you with a long, narrow rectangle.
Step 3: Fold the fitted sheet again.
This time, fold the rectangle in half widthwise.
Step 4: Roll the fitted sheet up.
Roll the fitted sheet from one short side to the other until it forms into a nice compact cylinder shape.
Step 5: Store the fitted sheet the right way.
Store your fitted sheet upright, in a storage container or linen closet, alongside your other bedding.
