We have all been guilty of randomly cramming sheets, musty pillowcases and fitted sheets into a drawer.
As much as we would love to have pristine sheets stacked neatly, colour co-ordinated bedding sets and beautifully folded towels, the truth is most of our linen closets look like havoc.
Organising your bedsheets doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a little bit of time and effort, you can easily keep your bed sheets in top condition. Here are a few tips on how to organise your bedsheets:
Sort through your belongings and get rid of what you don't need
We all accummulate items over time that we no longer use or need. When it comes to bedsheets, it's important to sort through them and get rid of anything that you no longer use. This will make it easier to organise the rest of your sheets. Donate any unwanted items to charity or recycle them.
Set up a designated place for everything.
Once you've sorted through your sheets, it's time to set up a designated place for everything. This will help you keep track of your sheets and make it easier to put them away when you're finished using them. Invest in some good quality storage containers and label them accordingly. You could also consider storing your sheets in vacuum bags to save space.
One of the best ways to organise your bedsheets is by folding them correctly. This may seem like a no-brainer, but incorrect folding can cause wrinkles and make it difficult to stack your sheets neatly. When folding your sheets, be sure to follow these simple steps:
First, lay the sheet flat on a clean surface. If the sheet is too large to fit on your ironing board, you can lay it out on the floor or on a bed. Just be sure that the surface is smooth so that you don't end up with any creases in your sheet.
Next, fold the sheet in half lengthwise. Once you have done this, fold the sheet in half again so that it is now quartered.
Then, starting at one end, begin rolling the sheet up tightly. Once you have rolled the sheet up completely, tuck the end under so that it stays in place.
Create a routine and stick to it
It's important to create a routine when it comes to organising your sheets. Whether you need to wash, iron or fold them, create a schedule and stick to it. This will help you keep on top of your sheet organisation and prevent any build-up of dust or dirt.
Take care of your belongings and they will last longer
This is true for all items in your home, not just bedsheets! By taking care of your belongings, you'll increase their lifespan and save money in the long run. Be sure to follow the washing instructions on your sheets carefully and store them in a cool, dry place when not in use. With a little bit of care, you can extend the life of your favourite bed sheets.
By following these simple tips, you can easily keep your bedsheets organised and looking their best. So don't delay - get sorting, setting up and routines in place today! Your future self will thank you for it!
