How to put a doona cover on (the easy way)
Taking to TikTok, Chantel Mila (aka @mama_mila) shows her followers the easiest way to put a doona cover using the burrito method. Here's how she does it.
Here are the step-by-step instructions
Turn your doona cover inside out and lay down on the mattress with the opening at the foot of the bed.
Lay your doona on top of that.
Roll both the doona and cover like a burrito towards the bottom of the bed.
Flip the cover over the ends (like in the video above.)
Do up the fastenings on the cover.
Unroll it. Voila! You are done.
How to put a doona cover on without rolling it
If rolling your doona seems too complicated, there's another way to make the job a little bit easier.
- Lay your doona cover flat on your bed.
- Feed the left corner of your doobna up into the matching corner of the cover. Now do the same on the bottom corner.
- Repeat on the other side.
- Pick up the top corners of your doona, then give it a good shake.
- Fasten the cover.
How often should you wash your doona cover?
This one depends on if you’re using a top sheet or not. If you have a top sheet, you can get away without washing your doona cover for longer. But ideally, you want to wash it every 2 weeks.
How often should you wash your doona?
Similar to sheets and pillows, the doona can accumulate sweat, body oils, and dead cells. Over time, if it’s not cleaned properly; it can attract dust mites and bacteria. As a general rule of thumb, it’s recommended that doonas be washed every six months to a year.
Just make sure you read the care instructions before washing. Follow our instructions for washing a doona when it won't fit in the washing machine.
