Fold sheets right out of the dryer to avoid wrinkles.

Bring your right hand to the left, folding the sheet in half horizontally and tucking one corner into another.
Lay flat on a large, clean surface like a bed, table, or clean floor.
Fold the side farthest from you in towards the center.
Repeat with the other side closest to you, and overlap the first side about 1/2 inch in the center.
Fold each of the ends to meet in the center.
Once again, fold one side over the other. Give the final touches and smooth out any bumps.
