I fold mine in half and then roll them, I can never fold them correctly

Probably best seen than explained.

Thanks, Kevin; I was just thinking of what a challenging verbal exercise it would be to describe the process. Show, not tell.

Yeah, I’m all for challenging verbal exercises, but they should provide some kind of reward. I wouldn’t call this one “rewardable.” ;-)

@kevbo: Thanks—just in time for me to try this out!

Hotdog-ways then hamburger-ways until it’s about 1’x1’. I don’t really care if the elastic part is all wonky. When I go to use it it stretches out anyways.

@kevbo. Thanks for the link. I had the first step right, but fall apart after that. This video helps a ton.

@Allie, you crack me up. What a description. Also diggin’ the word “wonky”. Permission to wordjack? :)

spendywatson: Haha, thanks! And feel free to use “wonky” whenever you like. It’s not my word anyways.. =]

I saw the video. It looks so easy. But I had a suitcase on my bed when I tried folding the bottom sheet just so. Didn’t work out so well. Ended up rolling it as usual—an asymmetrical situation. But the sheet will still be lovely and clean when I put it on my bed next time.

For any would-be writers, a description of how to fold a fitted sheet is an interesting assignment. I just tried, but finally threw in the sheet towel. This is a perfect instance of where showing is better than telling.

if you want to take the short cut you wad it up and forget about it.
