Why Everyone Is Putting Their Top Sheets On Upside Down

Alright, let's talk about top sheets.

Some people skip using them, but here's the thing: if you're not using one, you're probably not washing your comforter or duvet cover as often as you should.

That's where the top sheet comes in handy—it acts as a barrier between you and your comforter, keeping it cleaner for longer.

Now, about putting on the top sheet "upside down".

This might sound a bit strange, but bear with me.

When you put the sheet on upside down, it means the side with the finished edge goes at the bottom of the bed, tucked under the mattress.

This way, when you fold the sheet back over the blanket or comforter, the finished edge is visible and looks nice and tidy.

It's a small detail, but it adds a touch of polish to your bed-making routine!

More Secret Tips For That Perfectly Made Bed

  • Fitted Sheet Technique: To easily identify the long side of a fitted sheet, use a sticker or label. Place it on one of the long sides to quickly orient yourself when making the bed.
  • Duvet Cover Trick: Turn your duvet cover inside out and secure the corners of the duvet to the corners of the cover with large binder clips. Then, flip the cover right side out and shake it down over the duvet for a quick and easy cover.
  • Roll and Tuck Pillowcases: Instead of folding pillowcases, roll them up and tuck them inside the corresponding pillowcase. This keeps them neat and organized while also saving space in your linen closet.
  • Layer with a Flat Sheet: For extra warmth in colder months, layer a flat sheet between your fitted sheet and duvet or comforter. This adds an extra layer of insulation without the bulk of an additional blanket.
  • Use a Bed-Making Tool: Consider investing in a bed-making tool, such as a bed band or sheet suspenders, to keep your fitted sheet in place and prevent it from slipping off the corners of the mattress.
  • Pillowcase Storage: Store sheet sets inside one of the corresponding pillowcases to keep everything together and easily accessible. This prevents mismatched sheets and saves space in your linen closet.
  • Iron-Free Sheets: To achieve wrinkle-free sheets without ironing, mist them lightly with water and smooth out any wrinkles with your hands before making the bed. The moisture helps relax the fibers, reducing wrinkles.
  • Make Your Bed in Sections: Break down the bed-making process into smaller sections, such as making one side of the bed at a time. This makes the task feel more manageable and prevents you from becoming overwhelmed.
