How to cover a duvet by yourself in under 2 minutes? Not possible you say? I said the same thing. I am sure anyone who has ever tried putting a duvet cover on knows this is a royal pain in the butt. I am also sure that we have asked husbands and children to help pull, climb in, shake and whatever else can be down to get those corners to line up and not be lumpy. You may have seen this little trick recently on Pinterest or Facebook or both. Whoever came up with this, is a genius! I noticed where I pulled it from (makinglemonadeblog.com) makes mention that she linked up with others others so obviously this isn’t new, but it is to me.
When I first came across this, I marked it to come back to it and try it out. She made it look really simple. Too simple in fact that I thought for sure I would have some issues. I read the directions which seemed a bit confusing around step four. I then watched the video and got a confused around the same step, but still thought I am going to try this. So, today I did. She uses a full size duvet, but I actually used a king size duvet and cover on my king bed and it went just as smoothly until step four which I had to read twice, but figured it out pretty quickly. I am sharing this with you all since I will never go back to the old way of struggling to put a duvet back on my bed. For those of you who already knew this, you should be ashamed of yourselves for keeping this secret. 🙂 I am posting this link to my Pinterest page where you can find the details, otherwise, read below.
Step one: Lay the duvet cover Inside out on the bed with the opening of the cover at the bottom of the bed.
Step two: Lay the comforter(duvet) over the duvet cover, smoothing everything out so it lays perfectly over the cover.
Step three: Starting from closed side (top of the bed), roll the duvet and cover together towards the bottom (like a jelly roll). Start with one side, then go to the other until you can grab the middle and roll towards the bottom.
Step four: Once rolled (you should be at the bottom of the bed), reach inside of the duvet cover at one corner and grab the entire end of the duvet and pull through. Repeat on the other side and then the middle.
Step five: Unroll, shake it out, smooth it out, thats it!
