I was young.. probably 10 yrs. old and I loved tending kids.. there was a neighbor around the corner who had little children who I loved tending.. she was always teaching me household duties... and she is the one who taught me how to make a bed .... the correct way.. So even tho the years have passed it never fails that I think of
( Glenna Smith in Heber City ) as I make my bed....I have a instant replay of her showing me how to tuck the corners! Do you have someone that clicks ....a memory?
Oh by the Way-look what I found (just in case.. you need help!)
How to make a Bed by Martha Stewart!
1- begin with a good-quality mattress and box spring. Protect the mattress with a cotton cover.
2- Unless your're using a fitted sheet, make hospital corners with the bottom sheet, starting at the bed's head: Drape the sheet evenly over the bed, leaving about 1 foot of fabric hanging beyound the head. Stand beside the bed, toward its center, and pick up a side hem. pull the hem toward you into a taut crease, then raise the creased section over the mattress so the sheet makes a tringular tent over the bed. With your other hand, smooth the sheet flat along the mattress side.-- then fold the creased section down over the side, and tuck the sheet snugly under the mattress. Repeat the proces at the foot and other side of the bed.
3-Add the top sheet, and make hospital corners at the bed's foot
4- Leave the sides untucked for easier sleeping. finish with a blanket, quilt, or down comforter.
or you could give Glenna a call!
