    How to change a duvet cover easily – the ‘roll and stuff’ method

    1.Lay your duvet cover out on your bed with the opening at the foot of the bed

    2. Place the duvet on top of the cover, with the corners of the cover and duvet aligned.

    3. Roll the duvet up towards the foot of the bed. It should look like a tube. Leave a few inches loose at the end so you can still hold the corners of the duvet.

    4. Open the duvet cover and push the rolled-up duvet inside. Keep hold of the loose duvet corners and push them into the covers of the duvet cover.

    5. Take hold of the corners that are now in place and shake. The duvet should unroll inside the cover and fall into place.
