Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
