All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
Until I took notice of how manufacturers fold their fitted sheets for packaging, I was abysmal at the chore. Once I learned how to fold a fitted sheet without all the corner tucking nonsense, however, I realized it was extremely simple. In seconds flat I can fold a fitted sheet as well as a top sheet. No lumps, no fuss, no partner necessary, no special tools, and no need to watch a video explaining the technique every time I do laundry.
Unfortunately, like most tasks that seem difficult, there is an inventor ready to produce a plastic doodad who is also eager to take your money from you. Presenting, the Fit and Fold:
I don’t see any time advantage these buttons have to folding a fitted sheet without them. And, who wants four large, unattractive buttons on their bed when the sheets are in use? I’m envisioning my hair getting caught in one of the buttons while I sleep. Ack! Also, does anyone else find it strange that he says he doesn’t have five minutes to learn how to fold a fitted sheet properly, but his video is 4 min and 29 seconds to watch? I’m calling shenanigans!! Shenanigans! The guy definitely has five minutes.
Thanks to reader RL for introducing us to this fun unitasker!
