Are you clueless about how to use a duvet cover or how to put a duvet cover on? Well, putting on a duvet cover is very daunting for some people. But, there is no option of using a duvet without cover as it increases the risk of stains, dirt, and allergens that will lower the lifespan of your duvet. This blog explains how to put on a duvet cover using two simple methods. These tricks will help you put on a duvet cover by yourself without breaking a sweat. Check this out!
For people eager to know how to put a duvet cover on quickly, the Burrito method is the best choice! It is also known as the California Roll Method. Below are five simple steps to put a cover on a duvet using this method.
Lay down the cover on the bed. Turn the cover inside out.
Put the duvet on the cover & tie corners.
Begin rolling up from the top.
Fasten buttons and create a burrito.
Then unroll the burrito.
Turn the duvet cover inside out and lay down your duvet cover with the opening at the bottom of the insert.
Insert the duvet into the cover and tie the duvet cover to the loops on the duvet. For duvets without loops, simply attach each corner of the duvet with safety pins.
After tying the corners, start rolling both the duvet and the cover together, so that the opening end is at the base of the burrito. Please know that equal rolling on both sides will give you better results.
Keep rolling till you reach the bottom of the bed. Then, grab and pull the opening side of the cover right side out and wrap it around the bedding roll. Zip or button the roll to prevent the duvet from spilling out and that’s it your burrito is ready.
Grab and hold the matched closing points and unroll the covered duvet. Shake a bit to make your bed fluff and perfect to sleep.
Please note this method is time-saving but it requires little practice!
This was the best way to put on a duvet cover before new techniques emerged and it still is. If you want smoother results, always go for the traditional method of putting on a duvet cover. However, it may take a few minutes more than the burrito method.
Lay down the cover.
Fasten the corner ties.
Tug down the duvet cover on the insert.
Complete covering from edges.
Lay it flat on the bed.
Then, grab the top two corners of your comforter or duvet in a way that the corners of your cover and duvet are in perfect alignment.
Now start flipping the cover over the duvet and keep pulling it till the entire duvet is inside the cover.
Shake the cover so that all the corners of the duvet align with all the corners of the cover and there are no lumps.
Pro tip: When you put on a duvet cover with ties, make sure the closure is at the foot of your bed.
Tie the corner ties of your cover to the loops at the edges of your duvet.
This step is essential because the corner ties will help you keep your duvet secured in place. Some duvet covers have zip or buttons to close the cover at the base of the duvet.
Shake the duvet cover holding at the edges so that the insert further slides inside the cover.
Putting on the cover is complete if your duvet is straight and fluffy and there are no gaps at the edges of your cover.
Lay the duvet flat on your bed and gently press the entire surface with your hand for smooth results.
