A Mother’s Perspective on Duvets

black-woman-attitude_4523 Do you know which are the best duvet covers? Hey child, this is your momma speaking. I’m here to tell you that you need to get off your lazy ass and change your bedsheets. I’m tired of coming over to your stank ass apartment and seeing it look like a pigsty. The fact that you are broke and don’t have any money is of no concern to me.

I’m going to teach you how to clean up your bedroom and have a proper looking room. We’re going to be talking about bedding and duvet covers today. Do you know what a duvet is? You need to learn the difference.

A duvet is a comforter that is usually filled with down, or the feathers of a goose or other flying bird. These feathers (or “down” as they’re called) insulate you in both the summer and the winter. You know how birds are outside when it’s freezing ass cold out? That’s because their feathers keep them warm. The same principle applies to a duvet. It also makes it extremely light, as some comforters can weight over 20lbs, a duvet can weigh as little as 5lbs. You need to select the appropriate duvet for the right season. A “light” one will suffice and keep you at the right temperature in the hot summer months. A “heavy” one will help keep you warm in the winter months. This will also help keep down on your heating bills in your apartment.

You can find a reasonably priced duvet at Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond. Target and Walmart sometimes have sales as well. I would advise you to try to shop online, because such websites as Amazon carry a wide selection of duvet and duvet covers. The good thing about them is that you can use Amazon prime to get free shipping, whereas it would normally cost you $15 to $20 in shipping costs if you were to buy it on another site.

Once you have selected which duvet you like, then you need to find a cover. They come in all styles and patterns, so pick something that matches the decor in your bedroom. Once you receive it in the mail, take the end of the duvet and lay it out flat on your bed. Then take one corner and insert it into the far end of the duvet cover. Then take the other corner of the comforter and bring it all the way in to the other end of the duvet cover. Once this has been accomplished, simply hold the entire comforter on the end and give it a couple of good shakes. Once you’re done, lay it all out on your bed and press it flat so there are no wrinkles.

It’s as simple as that! Your total cost for a duvet and duvet cover should be under $100 total. If you follow my advice and take my tips, I can have your house looking like a normal human being lives there, instead of some slob. Now get up and go do as I told you.

Momma aint about to take no lip from your sorry ass. I want you to watch the video below. It is from my good friend, Sergeant Kick-Ass. He is a drill instructor in the Marines and he will show you how to properly install a duvet into a duvet cover.
