Step 1: Turn the Duvet Cover Inside Out

The first step to putting on a duvet cover is turning it inside out. This will make it easier to reach the corners and edges of the duvet cover.

Next, lay the duvet cover on your bed with the opening at the foot of the bed. Smooth out any wrinkles or creases in the fabric.

Take your duvet and place it inside the cover. Make sure the corners of the duvet match up with the corners of the cover.

Step 4: Secure the Corners

Reach inside the duvet cover and grab the corners of the duvet. Pull them through the openings in the cover’s corners. Tie the corners together with the attached ties or fasten with safety pins.

Step 5: Shake It Out

Shake the duvet and cover to distribute the filling evenly. Zip or button the cover closed and adjust as necessary.
