There's nothing quite like snuggling up in a cozy duvet at the end of a long day. However, filling a duvet cover can often be a frustrating and time-consuming task. Surely there must be a better way? The good news is, there are a few! We've compiled a list of hacks that will make filling your duvet cover a breeze. Whether you prefer the Burrito Method or the Traditional Method, we've got you covered. Plus, we've included tips like using safety pins or enlisting a helper to make the process even easier. So, say goodbye to wrestling with your duvet cover and hello to finding a quick and hassle-free way to make your bed.
The Burrito Method
Also called the ‘California Roll Method’, this hack recently went viral on TikTok and is so easy to master! The Burrito Method is a foolproof way to fill your duvet cover without any hassle. Start by laying your duvet cover flat on your bed, with the opening at the foot of the bed. Next, lay your duvet on top of the cover, making sure that the corners are aligned. Then, starting at the head of your bed, roll both the duvet and the cover together, like a burrito. Once you've rolled whole thing, reach inside the duvet cover and flip it over one end of your burrito. Do the same on the other side (almost like stuffing a pillow). Flip out the middle of the roll. Then you can simply unroll the duvet and voila! Your duvet is now inside the cover.
The Traditional Method
This is another easy way to fill your duvet cover, which many of us already know. Start by layinging your duvet over your bed. Then turn your duvet cover inside out and lay it over the duvet, with the opening at the foot of the bed. Ensure all the corners align. Place your hands inside the duvet cover and grab the top two corners. Pinch each one and flip the right way around. Keeping hold of the corners, slide the cover down the rest of the duvet and adjust/align as you go. Finish by tucking the bottom corners in. Then give the duvet a good shake.
Use Safety Pins
If you're struggling to keep your duvet in place while filling the cover, try using safety pins to secure the corners. Start the same way as for the traditional method, but take four safety pins and attach one to each corner of the duvet cover, securing the corners of the duvet in place. Once the corners are secured, you can easily shake the duvet out to fill the cover.
Use a Duvet Cover Clip
Duvet cover clips are another handy tool that can make filling your duvet cover much easier. They work similarly to the safety pins, but you use the duvet cover clips to attach the corners of the duvet to the inside corners of the cover.
Enlist a Helper
Sometimes, the easiest way to fill a duvet cover is simply to have a helper. Enlist a friend or family member to hold the corners of the duvet cover while you shake the duvet inside. With two people working together, the process will be much quicker and easier. Two sets of hands are better than one!
Filling a duvet cover doesn't have to be a hassle. Next time you're struggling to get your duvet in its cover, try out one of these methods and you'll be done in no time!
