How To Put Your Duvet Cover On The Frustration-Free Way

Putting my duvet cover back on used to be a huge ordeal, but this hack makes it SO much easier!

If you are a “duvet person” like I am, you probably already understand why I have a love/hate relationship with my duvet cover. While I love using a duvet on my bed because of the fluffy, cloud-like sleeping experience it gives me, it can be quite frustrating when it comes to putting the duvet cover on!

In fact, I try to wash and dry my duvet cover when my husband is out of the house. He has a history of losing his cool while trying to help me put the duvet cover back onto the duvet, so it tends to go more smoothly as a solo act.

The 5-Step “Roll & Stuff” Method

But recently, I came across a downright ingenious trick that makes it much easier to put your duvet cover on (especially if you’re doing it alone!) It’s such a game-changer that I couldn’t help but want to share it with all of you here.

How To Put Your Duvet Cover On The Easy Way

Step 1 – Spread

Spread the duvet cover out on your bed so that it lies flat, then lay your duvet insert out over the top of it.

Step 2 – Roll

Roll the duvet insert up starting from the top and rolling down, towards the bottom of the duvet cover where the opening is. It should look like a rolled-up cylinder.

Step 3 – Stuff

Stuff the rolled-up duvet insert into the opening of the duvet cover. (It’s easiest to do this one end at a time.)

Step 4 – Tuck

Locate the two corners of the duvet insert and tuck them into the two bottom corners of your duvet cover.

Step 5 – Unroll

Grab the two corners of your duvet cover—ensuring that the corners of the insert are in your grasp as well—then raise your arms and give it a good shake! This will let gravity do the work and cause the duvet to unroll inside the cover. 

You may need to make a few small adjustments to ensure each edge of the insert lines up with the seams of the covers, and that all the corners end up where they are supposed to be. Do up the buttons, ties, or snaps on the cover, and you’re done!

Even though there are five “steps” to this process, it only takes about a minute to accomplish. This brilliant tip has already saved me a lot of time and effort, and made the prospect of putting my duvet cover back on my duvet much less daunting!

Now I can enjoy the benefits of a freshly laundered duvet without winding up a sweaty, flustered mess. 🙂 Give it a try, and I’m certain you’ll find this tip as useful as I do!
