Does anyone here have a double bed and as such, a double duvet? If so, do you also suffer from not being able to change the duvet cover over?




I recently got a double bed and cannto find a way to easily change the duvet, currently I grab hold of both corner,s climb in and hope for the best.
Does anyone have tips? Have you suffered major injury from this process? Have you ever gottne LOST inside the duvet?

I don't have any tips, I just throw it all in the cover and try and even it out laugh.gif

I usually just get my housemate/boyfriend to help me do it tbh.

Can I borrow your boyfriend? I'll return him in the same condition I receive him.

Oh gawd, I HATE this. Second worst thing to ironing.

I know there is a special knack for doing this but I just don't know. I always end up having to literally climb inside the duvet cover to even out the corners.

YES. I always have to get someone to help me do it, it’s actually impossible to do by yourself. I can think of maybe once when I successfully managed to change it myself and it literally took me a good hour. The sheets are so light and don’t keep heir shape so as you pull the duvet through it all folds in on itself and annoys me SO much. I usually get someone to hold both corners so the sheets are taut and then I like slide thre duvet in but it’s honestly such a mess

I'm actually great at changing duvets, i have a double bed but a kingsized duvet bc it's SO COSY. What I do is turn the duvet cover inside out, grab the bottom corners from the inside then whilst you still have the corners in your hands, grab the corners of the actual duvet then like shake it over, never fails for me angel.gif

Pretty much the same as Lindsey in that I have a king size duvet but my technique is a little different. I stuff the duvet in, then line up the two top corners and shake it until it sorts itself out. Usually takes less than 30secs I'd say

I do it the same as Lyndsey, always works for me that way. It helps that my quilt cover also has holes in the top corners so I can grab the quilt from there without having to climb inside. laugh.gif

This is the best description of what I do when I change our duvet also, agree it takes about 30secs max.

Usually it takes me less time than that though as Mr D* does it.

I've had a double duvet since I moved into my flat. I still get someone to come down and change it for me, I really can't get it right.

You grab the far corner, reach in and pull it in until you get the duvet corners into the cover corners. Then turn it upside down, hold it on the outside and shake it until it evens out at the new bottom.

I basically just throw myself inside the cover and make sure all the corners are in place and then spread the rest of the duvet out the fill the space. Then I wave the whole thing like a beach towel until I’m happy with the shape of it.

That's what I do... but it's a nightmare!

Lindsay's method sounds like one to try.
