A comforter is a real blessing when it comes to making your bed. All you have to do is spread it out on the bed, put the pillows on top and you're ready to go. No need to worry. However, when it comes to changing the cover, the comforter becomes our worst enemy. Who hasn't struggled with a comforter cover? Who hasn't found themselves trapped inside the duvet cover and still not managed to put it on? Alone or with others, it's not always easy to get rid of bed linen. All these difficulties lead some of us to give up on comforter covers. Yet duvet covers are a very useful part of a comforter's durability. Here are a few tips to make this chore child's play.

The "burrito" technique

The burrito technique is the most popular today. It's fast, efficient and doesn't require several people to thread together. First, turn the comforter cover inside out. Place it on a flat surface, such as the floor or bed. Place your comforter on top, matching the ends as closely as possible. Then start rolling the comforter and cover inwards, so that in the end you have the shape of a burrito. After that, simply insert the burrito into the cover opening and unroll. Finally, the comforter is securely threaded into the cover.

The clothespin technique

This technique involves threading the comforter in the classic way. But we're going to use clothespins to save us a lot of trouble when it comes to matching the four corners of the comforter and the cover. To do this, simply place two or three clips on the ends of the closed part of the cover, then shake frantically to get the comforter into place. This technique takes around two to three minutes.

The folding technique

This method is less fun than the burrito, but just as effective. What does it involve? First, unfold the comforter cover on your bed, then fold it in half lengthwise, with the opening facing you. Do the same with the comforter. Place it in the opening and match the corners with those of the duvet cover. As with the other techniques, shake the comforter so that it unfolds inside the cover.

Choosing a comforter cover with closure

This is surely the simplest option of all. Why waste time putting the comforter on if you can just lay it down and cover it up? For this, you need a cover with a zipper. The disadvantage of this type of comforter is aesthetic: not only does the zipper make the comforter look less beautiful, it can also make it less comfortable. We therefore recommend a top-of-the-range comforter cover, made in France from cotton percale for comfort.
