  1. grannyK Says:

    Hey, I fold mine the same way!


  2. Michelle at The Green Study Says:

    My version includes a lot more #$%@^ and omits steps 1 & 2. It’s all about efficiency.


  3. She's a Maineiac Says:

    Ohhhh yes! I remember this video well — classic B-man. How do you do it? Even the part where you close the book had me laughing. And I will admit I fold all of my laundry in much the same way. The drawers are just filled with giant blobs.


  4. pegoleg Says:

    Ah, yes, a classic. You make it look so easy. Although in all loyalty, I would have to give the sheet-folding-expert nod to Jules’ mom, Babs.


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      Oh, sure, if you want to be be “effective” and “efficient.” I think outside the box.


    • Go Jules Go Says:

      Hear hear, Peggles! I actually stayed overnight at Babs’ recently, and [because it is Babs who raised me] washed and folded my bedding the next morning, and almost went back to watch the video because I started to panic about which corner went into which (it was one of the dreaded sheets with elastic all the way around!).

      It took two attempts, but in the end, I passed the Babs test! (I just had to have a glass of wine first.)

    Tune in next time for ‘how to find the ends of a fitted sheet’


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      Mathematically, you’ve got a 50% chance of laying the sheet on the bed the right direction. But reality tells us there’s only a 3% chance of the 50% chance.

    HAhahahaha! That was flipping AWESOME – I’m loving the way you give that domestic enigma the BIZ’ness!! All angry-arms & stuff… LOL


  7. silkpurseproductions Says:

    This video cracked me up the first time and I am still laughing. Open my linen closet. You will find all the sheets in there looks like this.


  8. The Childlike Author Says:

    Wait. You fold your laundry? Holy Friggin’ Cow! I could never achieve such elegance—all my laundry goes straight into a heap on a chair.


  9. aldabaran88 Says:

    LMFAO…a normal sheet and a staple gun: tricks of the trade.

    ♥ must see


  11. Margie Says:

    Very informative for people who own more than one set of sheets…


  12. Marie Says:

    I have this weirdly demented brain that secretly wishes I could have a fitted bedsheet folding competition with Martha Stewart so I could laugh at her for beating the crap outta her in her own type of crap.


  13. climbingthecrazytree Says:

    Fold a fitted sheet? What kind of oxymoron is that?!
    Mine just go out of the dryer and into the “uncooperative laundry” bucket.


    • pegoleg Says:

      This right here. Now I have a name for that place where the pants that need hemming, the sweater that picked up a couple of blue marks from the jeans, and the *&@#$ fitted sheets wind up, never to be seen again.


  14. Cassandra Says:

    Really, it’s best not to even try.


  15. pressed2infinity Says:

    Mr B.Man, you’re totally nuts!!! LOL that’s not even folded! I use my bed to fold my fitted sheets. Now that the weather is getting hot, (i live in Louisiana,) I’m going to have to change the sheets every 2 weeks or so, but i’ve had plenty of practice folding my fitted sheet. I’ve watched M S do it, and i can’t follow her method, but i think she, and your audience would like my method of folding it. I get it flat and perfect every time. I’ll have to blog about it the next time i fold one, which will be very soon.


  16. pressed2infinity Says:

    Mr B.Man, i just showed my wife your video of ‘folding’ your fitted sheet, and she said that she folds it the exact same way you do!!!
