I hope things are better than expected and the weather isn't causing too much trouble.Right then everybody hates putting the duvet back in the beautifully laundered cover. I think I've discovered the solution...........Turn the duvet cover inside and lay it out somewhere,or at least a couple of foot of it.Then line up the corners with the corners of the duvet,so it all lies beautifully.
Now for the new technique...................Take a couple of cable ties(zip ties to our American colleagues) 6 inch ones should suffice(ooh madam) and attach the duvet and cover together,by tightening the cable tie up around cover and duvet, about 2 inches in from the pointy bit.Then take your nail clippers,no knives please and clip the tail off the tie and nibble every bit of sharp plastic away.Voila,simply turn the cover round to the proper side and straighten out the whole thing.If your fingers are knacked a pair of pliars may help when pulling the whole thing tight.
'Cos I don't care about appearance I put a couple of ties outside on the other corners.Come laundry day cut all the ties with the clippers or side cutters,and seperate everything.Be mindful of nipping the material when cutting the ties.Believe me,it is easier to do than to explain on here.
So there you go.It works for me, and a couple of mates were amazed they hadn't thought of it.We DONOT always talk domestic science or whatever this is when sipping an Amontillado down th'ale 'ouse
