Step 1) Put the fitting sheet on your mattress making sure to tuck the elastic tightly under your mattress.

Step 2.) Lay your fitted sheet on top of it. The edge of your sheet with the longer hem should be placed at the head of your bed. Make sure the edge of the top of your sheet is flush with the top of your mattress. The sides of your sheets should hang evenly over the sides of your mattress.

Step 3.) Tuck the ends of your sheet between your box spring and mattress. If you can’t lift your mattress to ensure that your sheet will lie flat under your mattress, you can use a wooden spoon to tightly tuck your sheet in.

Step 4.) Pull the top sheet straight up on the side of your bed near the bottom of your mattress. Make a diagonal fold, and lay the fold flat on your bed.

Step 6.) Fold the top of your sheet, at the head of the bed, down to make a nice crisp edge. Then fold the sides underneath your bed. Do this on both sides.

Step 7.) Center your pillow at the head of your bed and enjoy a cozy sleep.
