It's the (crappy) buttons that get me.

I have finally worked out how to do it.

You turn the duvet cover inside out and lay it out on the bed. Lay the duvet on top of it. Take the corners of the duvet and poke them inside so they match up to the corners of the cover. Then slowly roll inside out, making sure the duvet is straight. You'll do it in about a minute.

I've also learned how to slice bread. Both skills only took about 40 years to learn.

Or watch the video grin

I turn it inside out the roll method is beyond me i tried and failed

ChipsandGuac Thu 25-Feb-16 12:42:06

It's easy! Duvet cover inside out. Put your hands inside the cover and grab the end 2 corners. Then grab the end 2 corners of the duvet. Shake and voilà!

I have recently learned the roll method from another thread on here. Can't believe how much easier it is to change a duvet cover. Taught DS(11) how to do it too, so one less duvet cover to change as well smile

Yeah, the burrito method is immense. DH actually loves changing the sheets now grin

The roll method doesn't work on a king size bed and when your hands are the size of a 2 year olds. You can't grip and stuff enough duvet in.
I turn it inside out (with arms inside via the opening), grab both duvet covers then flip the cover over the duvet.
I also don't do buttons up because I'm a rebel

DH refused to believe it worked until DS demonstrated it, we think it must be magic smile

I tried the roll method for the first time this week. It's sorcery.

Not quicker for singles, but fantastic for the enormous superking.

I used to be a chambermaid as a teen and student so I am literally a pro (helpful) wink

I use the inside out method. DH cannot do this at all and delegates to me.

I'd be fine if only I was a bit taller.

Inside out. I have to jump up and down to make it fall right as I'm only 5' 4".

Muji do really soft duvet covers with zips, not buttons. I quite like the buttons though.

Wardrobespierre Thu 25-Feb-16 14:00:46

I'm 5ft 3". Just. I have a super king and cannot do anything bar climbing in the fecking duvet cover.

roll method is silly and needs two people. Get the second person doing someone else.

as mentioned; duvet on bed. Cover inside out, reach in and grab corners. Grab duvet corners. Shake/pull cover down. If you are short, stand at the top of stairs.

diddl Thu 25-Feb-16 14:10:53

I'm 5ft(on a good daygrin)

I do the inside out grab the corners thing.

We have two single duvets on our bed & that's a lot easier that the titting about in the video!

hellsbellsmelons Thu 25-Feb-16 14:31:43

I stand on the bed with the top corners of duvet cover in my hands.
OH then puts the duvet inside and hands me the top corners.
He pulls down the cover and stuffs the other 2 corners in and we shake.
I jump off the bed and we button it up together.
Jobs a good-un.
I cannot do the roll method or the inside out method.
I too am short and need the extra pair of hands.

AnnPerkins Thu 25-Feb-16 14:36:44

I can't work the roll method out confused I'll have to watch that video a few more times.

I'm too short and my arms aren't long enough for the inside out way. And I'm 5'7".

BendydickCuminsnatch Thu 25-Feb-16 14:37:26

I can't work out how it works, I can't visualise it, but it does and is ace!

FishOn Thu 25-Feb-16 14:42:28

I also do inside out and shake, and stand on the bed if DH's not about to help

GrouchyKiwi Thu 25-Feb-16 15:09:05

I just make DH do it.

When he's not around I use the inside-out method too. A little bit of shaking and it's perfect.

But I prefer delegating.

I'm with ChipsandGuac. It's easy. Just hold on tight to the corners and give a few shakes.
