To start, place the sheet flat with the elastic side up and turn the top bottom corners over and place them in the top corners to create a rectangle (shown in action)
1. Lay the sheet flat with the elastic side up
The first thing Mila told you to do is lay your sheet flat on a surface like your bed, with the elastic part facing up.
Smooth the sheet to begin with a completely flat surface with the elastic facing inward.

2. Turn the corners of the sheets over
After that it’s all about creating a ‘rectangle’ with your sheet.
“Turn the bottom two corners over and place them in the top two corners to create a rectangle,” Mila explained.
You can do this by placing your hands in the corners of the sheet and tucking them in the other two corners.
The third step in Mila’s four-step method is that you have to fold the two long sides inward to make a long line of sheet (shown)
3. Fold the long sides inwards
The third step in Mila’s four-step method is that you have to fold the two long sides inward.
This will create a long row of leaves.
Once the long sides are folded inwards, you just need to fold your two short sides inwards (shown)
4. Fold the short sides inwards
Once the long sides are folded inwards, all you have to do is fold your two short sides inwards.
This should create a neat rectangle ready to be stored in your laundry or press.
Mila’s ‘bonus tip’ is that you can keep your fitted sheets in a dust bag to keep them neat and fresh.
Simply slide the sheet into the bag and secure it with the drawstring to ensure your sheets are crisp when you put them on your bed.

Thousands of people who watched the video were impressed by the waterproof method and wrote comments like ‘saved and added to favorites’ and ‘great’.
“I actually hate folding fitted sheets. Thank you very much for sharing this, ”one woman wrote.
Another shared her own alternative method of folding fitted sheet:
“I fold it the same way the first time, but then I fold it in half twice and then I fold it the other way around until it folds down small,” wrote one woman.
The video has been viewed over 14,000 times in just a few days.
A mom and homeowner shared the secret to getting ‘spa-worthy’ towels at home – and all you need is a splash of plain white vinegar (Mila’s towels pictured)
This isn’t the first household trick Mila shared online.
Previously, the mom shared the secret of ‘spa-worthy’ towels at home – and all you need is a ‘simple hack’.
According to Mila, the first thing to do is set your washing machine to between 40 and 60 degrees Celsius.
Throw in your towels and add liquid detergent, as well as half a cup of plain, white vinegar instead of fabric softener.
“Do the laundry as usual, shake the towels and let them air dry when they’re almost dry,” said Mila.
‘Then dry them for a few minutes until they are completely dry. This helps with softness and absorption, “she said.
The reason why vinegar works so well instead of fabric softener is that it “breaks down the residue of detergents and makes the towels soft and fresh.”
A two-liter bottle of plain white vinegar usually costs about $ 1.20 at the grocery store.
Others swear by using vinegar on everything they wash – from their sheets and towels to jeans and T-shirts.
