Without it ending up mangled?

Don't think Anthea has covered this, has she

i just end up with a ball of sheet, whichever way i try

You don't.

Just ball it up and stick it in the cupboard.

I find if you shove it in a drawer it doesn't matter if it's folded or not.

you dont you screw it up in ball and hide it.

Spidermama Tue 20-Feb-07 21:16:59

Good to know I'm not alone in believing this is one of life's unsolved mysteries!

I have a method but its difficult to explain -I sort of fold it into quarters so all the corners are together and then hook all the corners over my fist IYSWIM.

You can then fold in the sides to make a neater shape and then fold to fit in the cupboard.

Does that make me the new Anthea then ?

I can do it [smug emoticon] coutesy of Martha Stewart.

I think Anthea did cover this actually - or someone has recently in any case. Didn't look any better at the end though...

You need America's answer to Anthea Turner - Martha Stewart .

"Just ball it up and stick it in the cupboard"

So good to know I'm not alone

Ceolas Tue 20-Feb-07 21:20:11

We need diagrams, betty.

Scuttles off to google Martha's method...

fannyannie Tue 20-Feb-07 21:20:12

this is how you do it

Ceolas Tue 20-Feb-07 21:20:45

Oh MrsB you beat me to it!

et voila

purpleturtle Tue 20-Feb-07 21:21:03

Betty, are you sure that's not just taking longer over screwing it up small and shoving it in a cupboard?

MrsBadger Tue 20-Feb-07 21:21:28

not that it's in my favourites or anything

Chloe55 Tue 20-Feb-07 21:21:51

Anthea has covered this (god how embarrassing that I know that!) Anyway, the way bettyspaghetti suggested is apparantly the correct way to do it. I still can't do it though without it looking like a lump of rag.

Ceolas Tue 20-Feb-07 21:21:53

Except I don't understand the first bit

madmarchhare Tue 20-Feb-07 21:22:16

I cant believe that people worry about this

Ceolas Tue 20-Feb-07 21:22:51

Btw, MrsB, have you had a scan yet? My EDD is confirmed as 24th August

foxtrot Tue 20-Feb-07 21:23:26

LOL i have it printed out and tucked behind the ribbons on my handmade pinboard in the laundry
