A homewares shop assistant has shared her clever technique for folding a fitted sheet perfectly, and it takes just one minute.
Kris, who works for Adairs at Pacific Fair shopping centre on the Gold Coast, Queensland, was featured in a video for the homewares and linen store on Facebook.
She said that rather than rolling fitted sheets into untidy balls and stashing them away in the cupboard there is an easier alternative.

It involves placing your hands in the corners and transforming the linen into a neat rectangle, before carefully folding it up into a square.
In the video, Kris guides her audience through the process which allows one person to fold the sheet by themselves without requiring help from another family member.
She starts by placing her hands in the corners of opposite sides of the sheet before laying it on the bed.
How to perfectly fold a fitted sheet
Step one: Place your hands in the corners of either side of the sheet and lay it down on a flat surface.
Step two: Place your fingers on the outside corners and then push those corners inside out.
Step three: Place your fingers on the inside of the sheet, corner to corner.
Step four: Gather the ends of your elastic, corner to corner, then pick it up and give it a good shake.
Step five: Place your right hand into the corner of the sheets and then tuck your left hand under the corner. Place the sheet on a flat surface to form a rectangle shape.
Step six: Take your corners, fold over into the middle on both sides and then fold it into a nice squares.
Then she places her fingers in the outside of the other corners and pushes those corners inside out before folding those corners inside the first.
She gathers the ends of the elastic corner to corner and then picks it up to ‘give it a good shake’ and remove any kinks.
The final stage is forming that into a rectangle before rolling it into a ‘nice square’.
‘Now you know how to fold a fitted sheet there are no excuses,’ she said.
Kris walked her audience through the steps one by one, finishing in little more than 60 seconds
