    It's always bothered me, how does one fold them properly?

    I don't know either, but I'd like to see if there are any great ideas out there!

    In a big wad? [​IMG]

    They are almost impossible to fold so I try for fourths and then roll it up from there, but it rarely comes out that neat. Being stretched on the bed usually takes care of any wrinkles... not that today's treated cottons wrinkle that much, anyway.

    Find a spare mattress of the fitted sheet's correct size and fold that? [​IMG]

    What is this "fold" of which you speak?

    OK...I'll try it [​IMG]

    Now, any ideas on how to avoid 'pilling' on the sheets? Certain fabrics to avoid like sateen or something?

    Also, do you all think it weird that I vacuum my bed? One night of the cats in my bed leaves too much hair, so I vacuum it...the nurses at work think that's horrendous.

    I hate folding sheets so much that I wash/dry my sheets and just put them back on the bed that same day.

    On a related topic: I have el cheapo wal mart sheets. They suck, so I want some nice sheets. What should I get? $150 or less.

    Egyptian cotton sheets are great! Stay with at least 400 thread count....I personally don't like the "sateen" type..... I prefer the higher count regular cottons. I've had several sets for years with absolutely NO pilling...... Name brand department stores will have some great sheets..... bought my last set (600 count) at TJ MAX for about 70 bucks....

    Be careful - the threads more than 200 count may actually be two sheets sewn together! For example, 600 count sheets may just be 3 sets of 200 count cloth bound together!
