  2. Slip one top corner over the other.
  3. Run your hand down to one of the lower corners. Pull it up tuck underneath the first two corners.
  4. Run your hand down to the final corner. Tuck it under the other three. You should now be holding all four corners together.
  5. Shake the sheets out and smooth the sheet onto a flat surface
  6. Keeping your corners together, fold your sheet into thirds or quarters – whichever arrangement works best for you.
