Let's be honest, folding a fitted sheet is one of the most difficult and frustrating things to fold.
According to Google, 27,000 people a month search for "how to fold a fitted sheet."
But one sales assistant has just shared her clever technique for folding a fitted sheet perfectly, in just one minute - and it is a game changer!
"Kris" who works at an Adairs homewares store in Australia shared her tutorial on Facebook.
In the clip, she explains how instead of rolling fitted sheets into scrunched up balls and shoving them into the cupboard - you can simply place your hands in the corners and fold it into a tidy rectangle.
Here's her step by step guide to perfectly folded fitted sheets:
First, place a hand inside each corner of the shorter side of the sheet. Lay it down on a flat surface like a table or the floor.
Then, take the outside corners on the opposite side and turn them inside out. Put your hands under the corners so the seam is still facing out.
Fold the sheet in half, placing the outturned corners inside the corners on the opposite side. The sheet should now be folded in half with a hand in each corner.
Now take the top corners and fold the sheet in half. Grab the sheet through the middle and shake it out into a square shape.
Fold the long elastic edge over so that the top of the sheet is flat. Then fold over the shorter elastic side.
Finally, fold the sheet into three lengthways and then into a square.
Better living everyone!
