Putting a duvet cover on your down comforter is much easier with (2) people, although it can be done with just one person. Here are step-by step instructions on how to complete this task.  

  • Put your duvet cover on the top of your bed and make sure the opening is at the foot of the bed.
  • Place the down comforter on the floor at the foot of the bed.
    • It should be noted that all king comforters and duvet covers and even some queen comforters and duvet covers are rectangular, so double check to ensure they are orientated correctly.
    • Open the duvet cover.
    • Use one hand to grab the top corner of the comforter and then feed it up the side of the duvet cover. Keep doing this all the way to the top corner.

Stuffing a duvet cover

Use your other hand to grab and hold both the duvet cover and the down comforter from the outside. Now pull the duvet cover about halfway down.

  • Now it’s time to move to the other side of the bed and repeat this same process. This time, you should be able to pull the duvet cover all the way to the foot of the comforter.

Bring comforter to the top of the duvet cover

  • Move back to the other side of the bed and pull the duvet cover down to the foot.

Shake duvet cover to redistribute the down

  • Go to the foot of the bed, locate the opening and then grab only the duvet cover. Next, give it a shake with both hands. This will drive the down comforter to the head of the duvet cover. Now shake it a few times so that the down comforter will orientate properly and move into all the corners and sides of the duvet cover.
  • Close the duvet cover.   

Now, consider yourself a pro as you have just mastered the art of putting a duvet cover on a down comforter.
