Hospital Corners

I’m a little late posting today – but I stripped my bed and am in the process of washing everything down to the mattress pad.  I do this 4 or 5 times a year and I’m religious about washing my sheets every Thursday.  That’s a habit ingrained in me from childhood.  I read an article from a mattress manufacturer that said most people only wash their sheets once a month.  To that I say EWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m not going to get into another raging bed controversy – you know the one about how to fold a fitted sheet?  Suffice it to say, that’s another thing my mom taught me young so I don’t have an issue there.  But I would like to address the issue of hospital corners.

The last time I went home, I stayed with a cousin and helped him make up the bed in his guest room for my stay.  I started doing hospital corners and he seemed to be amazed.  I thought everyone did them!  Is it a throwback that I didn’t know about????

Since I’m apparently quite old fashioned, my throwback today is this how-to for doing hospital corners when you make your bed.  Enjoy!
