How to Fold the Perfect Hospital Corners

  1. Drape the flat sheet over your bed, making sure to keep an even amount of fabric draped on each side of the bed. Pro tip: Our friends at A Lotta Love recommend putting your flat sheet on printed side down.  
  2. Tuck the bottom edge of the flat sheet under the bed. 
  3. Grab one of the untucked bottom corners of the flat sheet, pull it taut up towards the top of the bed and tuck it under the bed. 
  4. Fold the excess fabric to the side, pull tightly and make a 45º angle. Tuck the fabric under the bed. 
  5. Repeat on the other side of the bed. 
  6. Fold down the flat sheet and admire your fabulous folding!
