    Method 1: Burrito Method

    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. 

    Step 1

    Lay down the cover on the bed. Turn the cover inside out.

    Step 2

    Put the duvet on the cover & tie corners.

    Step 3

    Begin rolling up from the top.

    Step 4

    Fasten buttons and create a burrito.

    Step 5

    Then unroll the burrito.

    Step 1 Lay down the cover on the bed.

    Turn the duvet cover inside out and lay down your duvet cover with the opening at the bottom of the insert.  

    Step 2 Put the duvet on the cover & tie corners.

    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. 

    Step 3 Begin rolling up from the top.

    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. 

    Step 4 Fasten buttons and create a burrito.

    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. 

    Step 5 Then unroll the burrito.

    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! 

    Method 2: Traditional Method

    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. 

    Step 1

    Lay down the cover.

    Step 2

    Fasten the corner ties.

    Step 3

    Tug down the duvet cover on the insert.

    Step 4

    Complete covering from edges.

    Step 5

    Lay it flat on the bed.

     

    Step 1 Lay down the cover

    • Place the duvet flat on your bed. 
    • Then take a neat and clean duvet cover and turn it inside out. 
    • Keep your hands inside the cover and reach for the two top corners of the cover. 

    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.

    Step 2 Fasten the corner ties.

    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.

    Step 3 Tug down the duvet cover on the insert.

    Shake the duvet cover holding at the edges so that the insert further slides inside the cover. 

    Step 4 Complete covering from edges.

    Putting on the cover is complete if your duvet is straight and fluffy and there are no gaps at the edges of your cover. 

    Step 5 Lay it flat on the bed.

    Lay the duvet flat on your bed and gently press the entire surface with your hand for smooth results.
