(10) Step 10. Go to the opposite side of the bed and complete the making of
the bed as follows:
(a) In sequence, fold back the spread, blanket, top sheet, and, if used,
the drawsheet and protective sheet to the center of the bed.
(b) Smooth and straighten the foundation sheet, maturing the top
corner and pulling the sheet taut while tucking the side under the mattress from head to
foot. If used, pull the protective and drawsheets taut and tuck them under the mattress.
(c) Bring over the top covers in succession. Tuck them under at the
foot and miter the corner.
(d) Fold the top edge of the spread under the blanket edge; then bring
the top sheet over to form a cuff and fanfold the bedding half-way to the foot of the bed.
Do not form a cuff when preparing a closed bed.
(11) Step 11. Replace the pillowcase and pillow (figure 3-3).
(a) Gather the open-end portion of the pillowcase to about midway of
the pillowcase length.
(b) Fit the pillow in the case with one hand while continuing to hold the
gathered edges with the other.
(c) Move one hand to the closed end grasping the pillowcase and the
pillow within. With the other hand, extend the pillowcase so that it covers the pillow.
(d) Fit the pillow into the corner on one side of the pillowcase and pleat
the excess under at the opposite side.
(e) Place the pillow neatly at the head of the bed with the open end of
the case away from the door.
