It Turns Out We’ve Been Changing Our Duvets Wrong This Whole Time
Fact: there is simply no way to gracefully change your bedding.
No, honestly. We implore you to prove us wrong.
We've been doing it for years and yet still haven't managed to finesse the domestic chore, often left frustrated, flustered and sweaty.
Most of us spend ages tirelessly stuffing the duvet and and trying to matching the corners before shaking the whole thing out.
Others feed in the top two corner and clutch them like our life depends on it before giving the whole thing a huge fling.
Whatever your method, we guarantee we've found one that's easier.
The bed-making experts at Yorkshire Linens swear by the 'roll and stuff'.
The idea is this: instead of haphazardly stuffing your duvet in to your sheets, you simply roll up the duvet, creating a solid manageable cylinder of fluff, and unroll it while its inside.
To explain, you begin by laying your duvet cover flat on your bed or floor (whichever has more room), before placing your duvet on top.
You then roll your duvet up length-ways (much like you might roll a towel or - for bakers - a Swiss Roll) so that you have a cylinder.
Next, take your cylinder and place it inside the duvet cover, lining up the two bottom of the corners. You then simply grab tight, give it one good shake, and watch as your duvet unrolls within.
We promise it'll shave minutes off your sheet-changing - and not to mention it's satisfying AF.
The team behind Yorkshire Linens even posted a video of how it's done (which you can watch at the top of this article) and the guy manages to do it in less than a minute. Genius!
On the topic of bed sheets, ever wondered just how often you should be changing them?
According to Philip Tierno - a microbiologist from New York University - we should ideally be popping our sheets in the wash at least once a week.
At least we'll be able to do that weekly change speedily now!
