Experts say we’ve all been changing duvets wrong as they share 60-second method
There’s no better feeling than jumping into freshly changed bed sheets – but it’s a job we all dread doing.
Whether you turn the duvet cover inside out and shake down, or attempt to climb inside clutching two corners of the duvet, it never feels easy.
But there may be a far easier way of getting the job done after the experts at Yorkshire Linens shared their technique which promises to complete the task in as little as 60 seconds.
They perfected the ‘roll and stuff’ method back in 2013, and others have sworn by the system ever since.
Roll and stuff method
To start, lay your empty duvet cover flat on the bed.
Place your duvet on top and roll it up towards the opening of the duvet cover, which is still flat on the bed, until you have a cylinder shape.
Place the rolled up duvet into the opening of the cover, which may be easiest to do one side at a time.
Once it’s inside, grab the two corners closest to you and put them inside the corners of the duvet at the same end.
Then hold the corners from the outside, give it a vigorous shake and the duvet should unroll inside the cover and drop into position perfectly.
Flap it about to make sure each side fits snuggly, do up the buttons and it’s done, as reported by The Sun.
And once you’ve mastered that, you can move on to finally perfecting the tricky technique to folding fitted bed sheets.
TikTok user Bubltea1 shared a video to show how it’s done, gaining more than 400,000 views as people wondered why they never knew the simple hack before.
The method leaves her with a neat, flat rectangle – leading to others suspecting she may even be a wizard after years of simply throwing it into a cupboard and hoping for the best.
