Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to make your bed. First off take the pillows or teddy bears or anything off the bed. Then you want to pull the covers down a little bit to make sure there's no socks in the covers or animals, maybe your pet crawled under there for whatever. When you replace the covers and the sheets, you want to do it one layer at a time. This is how you keep from getting the creases that you can see through, through the comforter. You want to smooth out each layer. And then oh and with teenagers, a lot of times you can just have a fitted sheet, it will make it a little easier for them to make their own bed and they will be more likely to make their own bed. Next you want to replace the pillows. I always say if you have a queen bed or a king sized bed, you want the open end of the pillow case facing the middle. I don't know why, that's just the way that I like to do it so that if you don't have the widest pillow underneath people won't be able to see that by walking to the side of the bed. Sometimes you got 5 pillows, sometimes you got 10, just put them back on, replace your teddy bear and that's it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you make your bed.
