What’s even more complicated than neatly folding a fitted sheet? That would have to be trying to put a duvet cover on quickly (and without muttering under your breath as you do it).
We thought we’d tried every method to get the cover on the comforter — like neatly pushing the far corners into the cover pocket, or trying to shake the duvet into the cover.

But no more. We have found a better way to do it, and it’s ridiculously simple. Prepare for your a-ha!/”Why didn’t I think of that?” moment as you watch these three demonstrations of the fastest and easiest trick to put on a duvet cover that we’ve seen.
