It’s a universally acknowledged fact that folding a fitted sheet is much harder than it should be.
The sheets are notoriously difficult to fold neatly thanks to the elastic edges, which is why they’re often bundled into a little ball and shoved into a cupboard.
So thankfully, organisational guru Marie Kondo has shared how to overcome this laundry struggle in just five easy steps.
Most people know Marie Kondo as the author of the best-selling book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and the star of the hit Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.
Now, with her KonMari method, folding a sheet is – dare we say it – easy.
The first step is to lay the fitted sheet on a completely flat surface with the elastic band facing up.
Then, fold the sheet in thirds lengthwise by bringing one long side into the middle, then the other.
You should be left with one long rectangle, which you’ll need to then fold in half widthwise.
Once you’ve rolled the sheet from one short side to the other, you’ll be left with a neat and compact cylinder shape that can easily be stored.
Try it for yourself and see how much of a difference it makes.
