Getting a duvet cover onto a comforter is no easy task. For the longest time, I thought it was a two person job for sure. It would take my hubby and I about 27 minutes to complete the task; and it made me want to avoid ever washing the duvet cover… which is kinda gross.
One day, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and happened upon a video by The DIY Mommy. The video showed this super simple way to get your duvet cover on, and it only required one person. You can view her video here to see how fast and easy this process really is.
I decided I better try this out for myself. Could it seriously be that easy? You guys! It was SO easy. Since I like a step-by-step process with detailed instructions and lots of pictures to walk me through, I thought I’d share that with you today.
How to Get A Duvet Cover On Easily
Step One: Comforter on the Bed
Place your comforter on the bed, as you typically would if you had no duvet cover.
Step 2: Turn Your Duvet Cover Inside Out and Place it on Top of the Comforter
Make sure the closure of the duvet is at the foot of the bed. You also want the top of the duvet (the patterned side) facing down. If you have ties that connect your comforter and duvet in the corners, go ahead and ties those together… I don’t have these, but really wish I did.
Step Three: Roll the Duvet and Comforter Together
Starting at the top of the bed, roll the comforter and duvet together until you reach the bottom of the bed. If you’ve got a helper, you can each take one side of the bed. If you’re riding solo, you’ll have to move from side to side to keep everything rolling up nicely.
Step Four: Enclose
This is probably the trickiest step. You are going to seal your roll by closing the top of the duvet. You’ll take the closure that’s facing down and tuck it under your roll bringing the closure together with your “roll” wrapped up inside. You are going to then secure the closure all the way across. I have buttons, but I’m sure there are other closures used as well.
Step Five: Unroll
Now you are going to unroll everything, and you should have the duvet on there correctly. You may need to do a little bit of adjusting and shaking to get everything where you want it (especially if you don’t have ties in the corners). Smooth it out, and you’re good to go.
How amazing is that little trick? I can now put on the duvet cover, by myself, in about 2 minutes.
And while you’re washing all your bedding, make sure you take the opportunity to clean your mattress… Yes. I said clean your mattress.
