Methods For Putting on a Duvet Cover
When you buy a duvet cover, you might be a little intimated about putting it over your duvet.
If you find yourself struggling, look for the method that is simplest for you. And the one that doesn’t leave it looking like a lumpy mess.
The Traditional Way
You’ll start by laying the duvet or down comforter flat on top of your mattress. Next, you’ll turn your duvet cover inside out.
Put your hands inside the cover to grab the two top corners, one in each hand.
Now, while your hands are still inside the cover, reach out to grab the top two corners of the duvet.
Now comes the tricky part. While tightly holding the corners of the duvet cover and the duvet, flip the duvet cover so the right side is out and over the duvet.
Shake it so it falls over the duvet/comforter covering most of it. If necessary, pull it the remainder of the way down and stuff the bottom corners into the cover.
Once it is all in place, button, tie, or zip it up and smooth it out over your mattress.

The California Roll
You will again start with the duvet cover turned inside out. Once you’ve done that, lay it on your mattress with the opening facing away from you.
Next, take your duvet or comforter and put it on top of the duvet cover aligning all four corners and edges.
While still on the opposite side of the opening, begin to roll the duvet and the cover. If necessary, realign the edges so they stay together while rolling.
Once you have it completely rolled up, start at one end and stuff the duvet inside the cover continuing across the whole roll.
Zip, button, or tie it up and then place that end at the bottom of the bed and begin to unroll.
Shake it and fluff it once you have it in place.
