The bottom sheet secret.

Figuring out how to fit the fitted bottom sheet can be frustrating – which side is the long one and which the shorter? If you chose a striped sheet, it’s easy since almost all bedding stripes run the long way. For everything (and everyone) else, here’s the secret: find the care tag.
