Changing a duvet cover is something everyone dreads.

However, a helpful video is sharing an ingenious life hack that it claims will allow you to do the arduous chore with minimal effort, Daily Mail reports.

The clever bed sheets trick, from YouTube channel Inhabitat, involves laying out your duvet and sheet on top of one another, then rolling them into a burrito (roll).

You then put your hand into the duvet cover and wrap each end, then the length of it, before unfolding a perfectly dressed duvet.

Inhabitat editor Yuka Yoneda credits her "burrito" method as making the process of changing a duvet cover much easier.

She shows viewers the trick in a three-minute video - which has re-emerged on social media after gaining more than two million views after it was posted last year.

Yuka says: "For most people changing a duvet cover is a painfully awkward experience."

She writes in her online article about the method: "Even with all of the modern conveniences we have at our disposal these days, there are just some things in life that no app in the world can make less annoying. Case in point: putting on a duvet cover.

"You may have simply accepted this guaranteed source of frustration as part of life, but did you know that there's a way to bypass all of the stuffing, pulling, tugging and adjusting that comes along with it?

"It's called the burrito method, and learning it will change your life."

When you get to the foot of your bed, reach into the opening of your duvet cover and flip it over one end of your burrito, exposing the right-side-out side of your duvet cover.

Do the same for the other side.

Once you have both sides flipped over, flip over the middle of the duvet cover as well.

STEP FIVE

Last, unroll your burrito back up to the top of your bed.

The best thing about this trick? Just reverse the steps to remove your comforter when you need to wash your duvet cover. No more having to shake it out!
