Bed Sheet Hanging Secret

How NOT to wrestle with washing and drying sheets!

Always hang your flat sheets by finding two corners and matching them together while they are still in the basket. Peg these to the line so the sheets are hung by their edges, not by their folds. To fold, unpeg half and fold it to meet the other half, then fold as desired.

    Now, about fitted sheets: I usually just roll them up more-or-less along the short end. How to fold those neatly has always eluded me....

    Worked really well. Bonus hint: since the sheet is folded in half first, you have a built-in crease to line up with the middle of the bed when you make it; thus the sheet is equally distributed across the bed.

    Thanks. Worked for me.
