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!
