How to cover a duvet the EASY way in UNDER two minutes!

I used to have a love/hate relationship with duvet covers– I loved them for their versatility but LOATHED putting the cover over the actual duvet. That is until I discovered the trick that allowed me to put a duvet cover onto a duvet in UNDER TWO MINUTES BY MYSELF. That’s right– no roping in my husband to help, no climbing inside, no midnight struggles as I fought to put a new cover on a duvet that had been puked on. (TMI?)

I’m a bona fide member of the duvet cover fan club. They’re inexpensive, easy to clean, and come in tons of gorgeous color and patterns. With two kids, a cat, and a revolving guest room door I’m always switching out my covers. However my husband always gave me the side-eye when it came time to put the covers on the actual duvets.  It was a two-person project, and one of those two people happened to be super grumpy about it. (DUDE.)

Covering a duvet has never been easier!

To demonstrate just how simple it is to put a duvet cover on a duvet, I made a video showing the steps. You could probably cover it way faster that I can demonstrate since you probably won’t be talking to yourself the whole time. Or maybe you will be, I won’t judge. Regardless, seriously, it only takes a minute to do and here’s how you do it:

Roll it out

Step Six: Enjoy the extra 8 minutes or so that you just found by mastering this trick. Revel in your brilliance. Pretend you’re still struggling with the duvet and pour yourself a glass of wine while your husband stays far away lest he get roped in to helping you. Take a nap instead. He doesn’t need to know.  🙂

All finished, the duvet looks awesome
