Ever got caught inside a duvet cover trying to get it back over the quilt? We've all been there. Changing beds can be time consuming and exhausting! But it's a job that needs to be done, so let's do it properly. Here are our tips for making it a little more manageable:
Do it room by room. Change one bed each day, so that the task is broken down into more manageable chunks. This way it only takes around ten minutes per day, rather than what seems like all day to change every bed!
Keep an extra set of kids bedding to hand in case of emergencies. If your little one has a middle of the night accident, having a kit ready to go will help settle them back again a lot more quickly. It’s a good idea to invest in sheets with a waterproof backing for this reason too.
Hoover the mattress once you’ve removed the sheets, and wipe down the bed frame and headboard.
Flip your mattress regularly.
Move the bed out so that you can vacuum around and behind.
