How to Make a Bed Military Style


How to Make a Bed Military Style. Making your bed is easy; avoiding the urge
to climb on in is the tough part. Follow these steps for a snug and secure night’s
sleep. You will need A fitted sheet A top sheet A
pillow and a long-handled wooden spoon (optional). Step 1. Place the fitted sheet on the bed by securing
the corner elastic under the corners of the mattress. Tuck all of the edges of the sheet tightly
around and under the mattress. Step 2. Lay the top sheet over the fitted sheet, with
the sheet’s top edge even with the top of the mattress. Be sure that the sides of the sheet hang evenly
over each side of the mattress. Place the edge of the sheet with the longer
hem – about 2 inches wide – at the head of the bed. Step 3. Lift the bottom of the mattress with one hand
and tuck the bottom of the sheet between the box spring and the mattress with your other
hand. Be sure that the edges of the sheet lay flat
under the mattress. Use a long-handled wooden spoon to tightly
tuck the sheet if you have trouble lifting the mattress. Step 4. Lift the top sheet about a foot away from
the foot of the bed on the bedside. Pull straight up to form a diagonal fold and
lay the fold flat on top of the bed. Step 5. Tuck the piece that is hanging from the corner
under the mattress. Smooth the diagonal fold down over the side
of the bed, and tightly tuck it under the mattress. Step 6. Tuck the side of the top sheet securely under
the edge of the bed. Don’t tuck in the last foot of the sheet near
the head of the bed. Fold the top side of the sheet down to form
a nice, crisp edge. Step 7. Do the same on the other side of the mattress,
keeping the sheet pulled tight. Center your pillow at the head of the bed
and look forward to a good night’s sleep. Did you know In 2009, a hotel chain sponsored
the World’s Biggest Bed Jump. Thousands of people in four different cities
jumped on giant 50- by 33-foot-beds for over 16 hours.

  1. thats why i say "fuck the military..go make real money" I've seen em go in stupid and come out just as stupid and fucked over

  2. If it were not for our Military you're ass would be blown up, if you dont like the military then why are you looking to make a military style bed? GET A LIFE WISE GUY!

  3. Be careful, bend your knees, not your back. When you bend your back you can only lift 1kg. This is the perfect example to end with a torn muscle…

  4. I'm all tucked up in bed sarks, clean sheets, clean hair & body, all I need now is ur filthy mind beside es!!!

  5. My dad was in the military and they didn't have fitted sheets, and he had to get this done in 2 minutes. He even had to make the sheets ridiculously tight, so he just decided to sleep on top of the sheets instead of making the bed in the morning.

  6. 1 thing i don't like about the military is that when they are at war. innocent children and they're parents get killed.

  7. USAF vet…only commies have fitted sheets…:)….I don't know what military taught this method of tucking the sheet…Our corners looked like a wrapped gift…THIS is how you make a rack https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRByQfYkV1A

  8. This video gets a D. Fitted sheets are a no-go for a military bed and the hospital corners here were made incorrectly and look awful. The whole bed at the end looks a mess. No drill instructor anywhere would give this bed a pass.

  9. Defiantly not a military style bed we don't get it that easy and the hospital corners are rubbish would never get a pass in inspection 😂

  10. Now have a Drill Instructor play "Two Sheets and a Blanket" for an hour straight because someone can't make their bed before he says 5.

  11. I used to sleep on my already made bed and just sleep in my cold weather pt gear. I don't remember elastics or fitted sheets though. Easy mornings… Until pt anyways.

  12. The sheet you know how you put it under the bed or what ever will one side I will put it one and I try to other side the one that I put on it just comes.off I need help

  13. The way I fold the top sheet is draping and evening it out over the bed, then take the end of the sheet and fold it under the bed. Then I create a fold and tuck in the sheets at 90 degree angles into the under of the bed from the sides. Essentially the same operation, different method.

  14. Pretty sure military style in America is just pointing your gun at the bed and telling it to fix itself

  15. We dont rly use the top sheet. We go with fitted sheets alone.

    -Non Military person who needs a lot of space in bed

  16. No, no matter how hard I try my beds will never pass military inspection…I failed many times lol

    I still not sure why…

  17. ok….is it just me or fid i tuck the sides of the top sheet before and after the military corners. this video needs some work.

  18. ok….is it just me or fid i tuck the sides of the top sheet before and after the military corners. this video needs some work.

  19. ok….is it just me or fid i tuck the sides of the top sheet before and after the military corners. this video needs some work.

  20. ok….is it just me or fid i tuck the sides of the top sheet before and after the military corners. this video needs some work.

  21. I didn’t knew that the way I made my bed since I was like 6 years old was the military way

    ._. What a strange coincidence

  22. Why would you want to make your bed military style? Are you in the military? Because if you were you would know

  23. There's no fitted sheets in the military and you use rulers to remove creases. No chance this bed would be even close to passing inspection.

  24. What kind of military has fitted sheets? … Do you get triple quilted toilet paper and a memory foam pillow? FFS.

  25. One side of my bed is against the wall… And at the foot and head of the bed are wooden “ladders”(there is a top bunk for some reason).
