I folded my fitted sheets that way before it was cool.

Folding fitted sheets is just another prestidigitationist's trick. Sure, it looks simple on the video, but it took years of practice to get there. Plus, there were probably dozens of outtakes that ended with Ms. Arment wadding the sheet up in frustration and shoving it in the closet behind all the neatly folded flat sheets.

Needs more actual showing of the folding steps instead of staged steps.

I just want to reiterate an important point.

Hops is the star. What is it with animals and making the bed?

1. Remove sheet from clothesline.
2. Scrunch up sheet and dump in washing basket.
3. Ram sheet into linen cupboard alongside all the other things in there.

Fold schmold.

Yeah, not even catchy songs can help me with this. I've decided to finally be at peace with a neatly stored wrinkly bundle that's sometimes sort of a rhombus, and sometimes not.

I prefer my version of the song:


*hardcore bassline*

BUNCH THE SHEET UP AND PUT SOME THINGS ON IT!

BUNCH THE SHEET UP AND PUT SOME THINGS ON IT!

BUNCH THE SHEET UP AND PUT SOME THINGS ON IT!

RAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

*circle pit*

How cute!!! And I find that breed of dog to be intolerable usually so that just speaks to how unbelievably adorable this particular dog is.

Needs more cat.

They did a good job with the fitted sheet but then fell short with matching flat sheet and pillow cases. You fold the flat sheet and one of the pillow cases inside the fitted sheet and then put the bundle inside the second pillow case. That way you have the whole set packaged together.

Is the dog necessary for the process? If so, how long do you have to pause for photos between each step?

People fold fitted sheets? Seriously, I never even knew. I've always used them as a makeshift sack in which to carry the other laundry done during the same load and immediately put it back on the mattress.

But even in pop song format, it may as well have been someone trying to explain how to pilot a TARDIS. More complex then your puny mind can comprehend, intended for a crew of six.

You, sir or madam, are a genius.

The credit should go to Martha Stewart. It's a tip I heard her mention in passing.

How to fold a fitted sheet with dog hair all over

actually, that dog looks like it probably has a hair coat, not fur. they require tons of brushing, but really only shed when you do the brushing.

this folding a fitted sheet business is not a possible thing. sorcery.

I've told this story before, but:

A fellow writer brought a date to my party, which was attended almost solely by other writers. Date had just won a Pulitzer. After a few bottles of wine, it was revealed that she could fold a fitted sheet. Guess what we made the Pulitzer Prize-winner do over. And over. And over again.
