    Do you fold your sheets?
    I like to fold them right out of the dryer. I worked in a retail linen store for six years. Part of my job was to repackage opened and returned items.

    I fold sheets for what was mentioned in the 2nd post- for stacking in the closet.

    But, this begs the question- is there a fancy way to do it that we should be aware of?

    I just fold in half, fold in half again, etc, until it's square enough to fit my shelf.

    I fold them for stacking in the closet and to keep the wrinkles to the minimal. My husband he rolls them in a ball and throws them in the closet.

    I fold and put them all in a pillow case and stack in the closet..that way everything is together when you are ready to use them.

    My Grandmother ironed sheets too. She ironed everything! I remember the bottle she used with the holes poked on top of it. She'd be appalled to know I just hang my jeans up when they come out of the dryer and wear them un-ironed :shock: :-P

    Yes, I fold my sheets.
