Everyone knows the worst part of doing laundry isn’t the actual washing, but the folding—especially those dreaded fitted sheets. One mom has come up with a genius fitted sheet folding hack and, while it might not exactly save time, it will definitely make it much more fun.

Indiana mom and grandma Terri Estep Metz recently shared her hilarious sheet folding hack on Facebook and her post quickly went viral, garnering thousands of views and likes. Its not hard to see why the video is so popular, just watching it will make you feel better about doing laundry. Here, see for yourself:

As she pulls out a fitted sheet, Metz explains, “So I just got my sheets out the dryer and I always hate that because I hate folding sheets but I know everybody does so today I’m going to show you the easiest way ever to fold a fitted sheet.”

Things quickly take a comedic turn, however, when she proceeds to stick her arms and legs inside of the corners of the sheet and direct viewers to lay down on the floor, saying “You may be happy to lay down because you’re already worn out at this point cause folding sheets is nonsense.”

If trying the first step of this hack at home doesn’t send your kids into peals of laughter, the next steps definitely will. We won’t spoil the surprise—you’ll just have to watch the video yourself!

It might not be how Martha Stewart folds a fitted sheet—or even the “easiest way” as Metz claims, and as some commenters were quick to point out, you might even dirty up the clean sheet by laying on the floor. But you’ll have a blast doing it and it’s not often you can say that about laundry.
