How do I retrieve a fitted sheet that got stuck in a laundry chute?

I live in a two story apartment that happens to have laundry chutes. Last week, I threw a fitted sheet in the laundry chute and it didnt go all the way down into the basement.
How do I retrieve the item i need to wash?
The laundry chute is not round; infact, a newborn baby can get stuck in it, it’s that thin. You think maybe water could do the trick? Remember, I live in a 2 story apartment, and i’m on the second floor, the laundry room is in the basement.

    Would it work, maybe, if you were to put a baseball sized stone down the chute? Wouldn’t hurt to try!

    Keep throwing your dirty clothes down it. It will come loose sooner or later.

    I would try a pole of some type from the bottom or top depending upon where the rascal is lodged. Failing that you might consider some type of object with weight (a box with a few books, etc). I believe water would just pass through the sheet and make a mess, try to stick with solids.

    Can you see where it is hung up? Try a broom handle, or a reg broom or a long piece of wire.
