What is a duvet cover?
A duvet cover is the fabric casing that protects your duvet cover, making it easier to keep hygienic and clean. It also makes your bed look more visually pleasing, as duvet covers often come in a range of colours and patterns, allowing you to match your duvet and bedding to your personal aesthetic.
How to put a duvet cover on
When you’ve washed and changed your duvet cover, there are a couple of tricks to putting a fresh duvet cover on that will make this infamously annoying activity super easy.
The easiest way to put a duvet cover on when you’re on your own is to firstly turn the cover inside out. Then, put your arms inside and fit your hands into the corners, you can then grab the bottom corners of your duvet, and pull it through, shaking firmly. As you pull the duvet through, the cover will flip back to its proper side.
Before you fasten the buttons at the bottom of the duvet cover, hold the top corners and give it a thorough shake to ensure there are no folds or lumps in the duvet.
