    Red face Damn Corner sheets
    Ok, so the description under this post area is "When your real friends and family think your a geek you will find someone who understands you here".

    Well I wouldn't go as far as saying my family and friends, but perhaps I have to wonder about myself sometimes...

    Every time I wash the sheets and have to fold the corner sheet, it ends up looking like I just rumpled it up into a ball.

    Anyone have any tricks for folding corner sheets??

    Regards,

    Tuck one corner end into another before you fold - that's all I remember. LOL

    How to fold a fitted sheet
    This link just goes to show you can find anything on the net.

    I actually learned this trick years ago working part-time in a laundry mat while in graduate school. Yeah, it was kind of a weird job for a guy, but it turned out to be a great way to meet women.

    Oops. Herb posted the same link while I was writing my post.

    You guys got me thinking about the fastest way to fold up a t-shirt trick. Here's a page with some different videos of doing just that:

    http://willmurray.name/blog/2006/09/04/48/

    I seriously fold my t-shirts like this now (the first way in the series). It is so much easier once you get the hang of it (and in a geeky way kinda fun too).

    Lol, hey, that's a tip I really had not thought I would find at this forum. We really do cover every topic, I guess! Nifty t-shirt fold...
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Here's an OBVIOUS thought:

    Only own ONE set of sheets - and you'll never have to fold them.

    Hey! It works for me

    Two things I can't stand doing: washing dishes and doing laundry.

    I"ve got an old washer/dryer setup (like 15 years old) and still kicking. I (being the lazy bachelor that I am) often leave everything in the dryer until I need it. Fluff it up for a couple of minutes, and it's good to go!

    lol I like your ideas lol Just buy a lot of paper plates and get the little round guy that does the vacuuming and won't have to do any housecleaning.

    Thanks for the tips, too. On a more serious note.... I feel your pain Vness all the tips in the world, and they still never really turn out the way they
    re supposed to be I don't think. lol The folding the end into the other does seem to work the best, but still the way ours ends up it doesn't look like Martha would approve. I defnitely like the other 3's ideas the best

    I'm not a lazy bachelor... there are things you learn from being a busy mom... paper plates are the bomb, less is more as far as dishes and linens go....

    And who cares what the darn sheet looks like in the closet.... is someone sending the folded linens police to your house for inspections???? In a pile in the laundry room works until they get tossed in the closet....

    Hmm I always thought that was the purpose of having kids - to do the laundry, do dishes and any other job a parent doesn't wanna do

    That's what I need for this apartment, a goat! There's so much paper clutter around it would take a month to file it all. A goat would chomp it all down, problem solved - all gone, no filing to do.

    Here's some advise for the guys. Try to do your wife a favor and voluntarily do the laundry for her. Throw in her favorite cashmere sweater. It will shrink to the size of a Barbie doll. Before you know what hit you, you'll be relieved of laundry duty forever. Worked for me. No corner sheets or anything else to mess with.

    I just throw mine in the laundry bag and leave it until I want to switch what's on the bed. Who cares if it gets full of wrinkles? Once I stretch it out over the bed, they all go away anyway! Any stubborn wrinkles can be "ironed" afterwards by my 98.6 degree, all-natural bio-iron.

    W*rk = bad. It's bad enough that I have to wash them!

    Ern makes a point
    Many years ago while my wife was out of town for a couple of days, I thought I'd surprise her by doing the laundry. I carefully separated the whites from the color items, and then separated by whether it was pants, sweaters, blouses & shirts, socks etc.

    I looked at the labels on some of the clothes and noted that a "warm" wash and tumble dry was recommended. But I knew from my brilliant deductive skills that HOT would get them cleaner and a hot dry would dry them quicker -so to the machines I went!

    Couple of the sweaters became Barbie Doll attire, and some pants and blouses came out of the dryer a bit shrunk or twisted. Since then I have not been permitted to go near the washer and dryer (unless it to wash rags for the coffee shops). And I am soooo disappointed hehe....

    I almost spit out my drink when I saw this thread title. I actually said that EXACT phrase outloud last night. Not trying to fold the fitted sheet, which I admit I'm as bad at as anyone, but as I stood there moving it from corner to corner trying to figure out which direction it goes on the bed. Never fail I pick the wrong way and start out short sheeting the bed to figure it out.

    Arrrrggh!

    Too funny.

    Especially single sheets.... not enough width to figure it out on the first try....
