the very easy way to change your duvet cover

Getting in to bed with fresh sheets is probably the nicest feeling in the world. But the road to get there is a long one, and putting on a duvet cover is one of those chores we all dread. You know the drill. Grab a corner, dive into the opening of the duvet cover and get lost in a fabric cave, get hot, get flustered and consider how much you really need a duvet.

But, surely a seemingly simple household task shouldn’t require a torch and a trail of breadcrumbs? Surely there’s an easy way to put on your duvet cover? As it turns out, there is. Because we’re so nice, we’ll share the method with you right here…

  1. THIS IS NOT EASY FOR AN OLDER PERSON TO DO! I HAVE TWO VERY LARGE FOOD CLOSURE CLIPS AND PUSH FIRST ONE CORNER OF THE DUVET INTO ONE OF THE COVER CORNERS AND CLIP IT WITH THE LARGE CLIP AND THEN DO THE SAME WITH THE OTHER TOP CORNER. BOTH TOP CORNERS ARE NOW ANCHORED> AFTER THIS I PULL THE COVER DOWN BOTH ON THE TOP AND UNDERNEATH AND THEN STRAIGHTEN IT OUT. MUCH EASIER FOR ME AND I AM 82 YRS. OLD.

  2. Lay the cover flat out on the bed, with the open end at the foot of the bed. Lay the duvet on the floor, with one edge easily accessible as you climb into the cover backwards on your knees. Pull the duvet edge with your hands wide apart, while gripping the centre of the edge with your teeth. As you reach the front of the cover – backwards, kneeling – pull the duvet over your head and push the edge and corners to the front of the cover. Then slide out of the cover on your back. I’ve done this hundreds of times without difficulty and, on quiet days, I sometimes simply do it for fun.

  3. And who do you think would take the time to pull out the sewing machine , or sit and hand sew 8 ties to the corners of the duvet and duvet cover ? certainly not the man of the house , why not make it even easier and make printed designed easy to wash duvets , no ironing ,no fight with a duvet cover , easy peasy , I’m not at all surprised that a man hasn’t thought of this , they think the bed fairy does it , anyone willing to back me with this idea ?
