My kitten loves it lol, he is rolling around on his back enjoying fresh bedding. The end result is awesome, but definitely a job I would rather palm off.
I can't put a doona cover on anymore due to my shoulder, so my solution is always ask my DP or my mummy haha.
Sorry I'm not much help.
haha I start with the proper 'turn it inside out and shake from the corners method' but it always ends with me climbing inside to straighten it out.
Which is kind of fun, like I'm exploring a cave! Or I'll pretend to be a ghost and chase DP around (until I inevitably run into something due to the rather restricted vision).
In my younger days if the bed wasn't made late at night when I wanted to sleep, I'd just pile it on the bed and sleep in the big messy nest of bedding!
I lay the doona cover on the bed push two corners of the doona all the way through into the far corners. Grab the corners i just lined up then shake until the doona is inside, grab the other two corners and shake again. Takes 5min max (queen doona).
Inside out donna cover with arms inside to reach the top 2 corners... then use those fingers to grab the corners of the doona and shake it a bit. Then you just have to fix up the end.
I hate changing the sheets on my bed. I think our mattress is too big for the bed frame (both Queen, but I think the mattress is just a bit taller/fatter than standard) so it's a real struggle to be able to put sheets on without getting my arm jammed. I hate it.
