It’s the Little Things

I’m sure you’ve all noticed that fitted sheets have both a long side and a short side.  Have you ever noticed that, even though you have a 50/50 chance of getting the long side matched up with the long side of your mattress, you’re always trying to stretch the short side the length of your bed when first making the attempt? Happens to me every time. You’d think I’d get it right the first time just once. But I never do.

You think maybe that’s a metaphor for something too? I wonder.

  1. Attach a safety pin to the corners that go at the top of your mattress. Leave them there through all washings. If you have no safety pins, try making a small dot on each corner with permanent magic marker. Got any more problems? Ask Yomamma!

  2. Most of the time, on both the fitted and regular sheets, I find that the manufacturer’s tag is attached to the lower-right corner. I always find that corner and start with it at the foot of the bed, on the right-hand side.

    Don’t know if it works for all sheets, but so far, it’s been the case…
