Some things in life are easier when done by two people, like changing the duvet covers. Unfortunately an extra person is not always available. Actually an extra small person is usually available but not very useful in things like this. The only thing she can do with a duvet cover is crawl into it an play hide and seek. I decided to change the duvet cover because I had this crazy urge to wash the other cover. I knew the drill.
Turn the duvet cover inside out, find the corners and then turn it right side out and pull it over the duvet. I realized it would be so much easier using the huge binder clips my husband has. I clipped three, one at each corner and one in the middle and then it became so much easier. All I had to do was pull the duvet cover over the duvet without fear that it would get all clumpy inside. Then you just need to spread it on the bed and straighten it out. A few spritz of fabric freshener too on the sheets, pillows and the duvet and the bed is ready. When I also have more time I usually give it a whizz with the steamer thingy. I also add like a couple of drops of fabric softener to the water so that things smell extra fresh and nice. It makes the sheets lovely. I love fitted sheets, they are the smartest invention before the internet. When I first got married I got regular flat sheets and I hated them, you have to pull them straight every 10 minutes if you want them to look good, fitted sheets are just perfect they stay where they are supposed to and look straight all the time. I had my mom have some custom made for Lulu’s crib mattress too because little Lulu used to pull out the sheets and throw them out of the crib. She also usually has a teddy in the bed with her and will throw him out as soon as I go get her when she’s awake in the morning signalling that since teddy is out of bed so should she.
