Put on a Duvet Cover
Here's how to easily stuff the duvet in and you won't feel as if you've been in a three-way wrestling match!
Try this method for putting on a duvet cover that I learned from a Swiss hotel maid. Standing, grab the top two corners of the duvet cover, fabric right side out, holding one corner in each hand.
Holding tightly to the corners, toss the duvet cover up and inside out, allowing it to fall over your arms. The upper corners of the duvet (with your hands inside them) should be visible.
Grab the corresponding corners of the duvet through the corners of the cover. Make sure you’ve got the duvet aligned properly, matching short and long sides.
Hold on tight to the duvet-cover combo, and shake. As you shimmy, the duvet cover will fall right side out, down and over the duvet itself.
Flip the newly covered, freshly fluffed duvet up and over the bed, and turn your attention to the cover’s bottom. Some covers have sewn-in pockets; if so, tuck the duvet’s remaining corners into place.
Fasten the bottom of the duvet cover; some makes have snaps, others have buttons or ties. When you’ve finished fastening, give the duvet a final shake to distribute the down or filling. Bed made!
Tuck fabric softener sheets into the linen closet and your bedding will come out smelling sweet and fresh.
