Joe Truini: If you’ve seen Simple Solutions over the years, you know I’m more of a drill bit and belt sander kind of guy, but here’s a tip for putting a comforter into a duvet cover.

Start by taking a duvet cover and turning it inside out, and lay it out on the bed with the open end down near the foot of the bed. Then, take the comforter itself, and just spread it out, on top of the cover. And again, the cover is inside out. Start at the top of the top end, and just roll it over all the way down.

OK, now here’s the real trick. To get the comforter inside the duvet cover, simply open up the duvet cover and turn the whole thing inside out. Basically, take the comforter and stuff it inside.

Now, here’s where the magic happens. Well, it might not be magical, but it’s pretty cool. Now, you just unroll it, and the comforter is inside the cover. So, there you go. You just snap it out, and there you go.

So, now, get that straightened out a little bit, but you get the idea. The comforter is inside the duvet cover. Ready to go.

    Joe’s idea is great, however, I do have the blanket inside the coverlet, but how do I keep it in place? Thanks.

    Great idea thank you because that wasn’t my problem, but it will certainly make life easier, as I have king size and it’s a pain when I wash bedding. My question is there a fastener which you can put at the end of the Duvet to keep the comforter from sliding down to the end of the duvet, it seems to slide down all the time. thank you.
