Frustration free duvet


Ok, this is the bit where it gets a little random up in here with the subject matter, but stick with me, I can’t be the only person that was being driven mentally insane by this chore, right?  Let me start by saying I am a bed making connoisseur, my very first blog post I ever hit ‘publish’ on was about how to make a bed. It had about 30 photos, it was as ridiculous as it sounds and my husband still brings it up to prove his argument about my neurosis. Bed making was on my top 5 list of things I needed to do to feel “normal” again after birthing a human, so sleep deprived, post major surgery and all I made that darn bed. I have no problem with the actual bed making, but the after laundry day trying to get the duvet cover on the comforter? Well that was just a comedy of errors–until a week ago. Yes, a week ago, I waited nearly two decades before I actually decided to do anything about the murderous rage I felt trying to get the duvet cover on the comforter. I literally would start to sweat and more than once I cried, because it was so flip, flappin’ difficult. I felt like I alone was the only one in the world that had not figured this chore out. Come laundry day I was at it again with a toddler in tow, not wanting her to see my complete breakdown when faced with this wretched piece of material and my bed, I put on a fake smile as I tugged and pulled and nearly suffocated trying to get everything aligned. A cautionary tale for sure.

At the end of my duvet rope, I did what anyone in the 21st century would do and I Googled. My friends below is the fruits of my labor,what I found, duvet cover nirvana. If you have been struggling like me, you are welcome. Enjoy your new almost frustration free life!

  1. Oh my goodness – I feel your duvet pain! Between getting our bulky down comforter into the duvet and then keeping it from sinking down to the end of the bed, I spend way too much time thinking about something that should just be an inconsequential part of my life. Thank you for posting those youtube videos – I look forward to giving them a go!

    1. I am so glad at least one other human understands, the struggle is real, lol. The videos have been game changers for me and also having the tie combo at the end of the duvet cover and comforter for keeping everything in place. I have another ‘trick’ up my sleeve as well but I will save that for another day;)

  2. Ah love this! So much frustration over one item of laundry. Seriously though, why is it so dang difficult? I can never get it right, always either lumpy or lopsided. Bahh… I gave up a few years ago and just purchased a coverlet… Then I only have to tackle the dreaded thing when we’ve got guests. Haha.
