Expert Bed-Making Tips

1. Place your top sheet facedown, so that the right side is visible when folded over the top blanket.
2. Fold the end of the sheet at the foot of the bed firmly under the mattress and tuck the bottom edges in to make hospital corners.
3. Leave the sheet sides near to the pillows untucked, so you can get in and out of bed with ease.
