It could be argued that having to put a new cover on your duvet is one of the most frustrating chores of all time - admit it, you've had to crawl inside the bed sheets at least once trying to match up the corners to each other properly.
If that sounds familiar, then you'll be thrilled to hear that one woman has shared her genius time-saving hack to get your bed made in just a few minutes. Check it out here:
It looks a little complicated at first, but this is definitely one trick worth learning if you're as sick of accidentally folding your duvet inside the covers as I am.
TikToker Brooke Mason (@brookelmason) talked her followers through the manoeuvre step-by-step, and people are already swearing by it.
Before we get into it, it's worth point out that Brooke uses a duvet cover with corner ties, but she says others should probably work the same.
"So the first thing you're gonna do is turn the duvet cover inside out and lay it on your bed with the buttons facing the bottom of the bed", Brooke begins.
Simple enough to start with, right?
"Next," she says, "you're gonna lay your duvet insert over on top of that and tie all four corners. If your duvet doesn't have ties, that's ok, it should still work the same."
Still with me? So you've got your duvet lying on top of the duvet covers at this point.
"Then you're gonna roll your duvet like a burrito as tight as possible from the top to the bottom," she continues.
"This next part is where it gets a little tricky. You're going to find the opening at the bottom of the duvet where you would normally button the buttons, and you're going to wrap that opening around your burrito creation, essentially turning it inside out.
"Once that's done, you'll see it starts to unroll... so all you'll have to do is roll it back out from the bottom to the top. Then you can just shake it out to get it all even."
Got all that?
Brooke admits: "It's definitely a funky method, but once you practice, it's way easier than crawling inside each time."
If you're a little bit lost after that, don't worry. Brooke's followers don't really understand the physics of it either, but they do seem happy with the results.
"My brain can’t process how this works," confessed one follower.
"Thank you! Time saver!!," raved a second.
"Just washed my duvet cover and used your video thank you again!!," commented a third.
It's got to be worth a try, right?
