i was recently at bed bath and beyond, and came across a product that i thought could potentially be life changing. we have 4 beds in our house, and every one of them have down comforters and duvet covers on them. there are two beds in particular (my bed and my sons bed) where the duvet is always misaligned with the duvet cover and it drives me nuts!
i saw these, and i had a coupon, so i decided to give them a try:
"easy to use"
"attaches in seconds"
"keeps your comforter from bunching and shifting inside your duvet"
too good to be true? i was about to find out!
as instructed, we laid out the duvet cover (the malou from ikea) inside out on the floor, and put the duvet on top of it.
next, we put one side of the duvet donut on the top, and the other side on the bottom, and the pieces locked together . easy enough for a 9 year old.
so, yes. the claims of "easy to use" and "attaches in seconds" were pretty much accurate.
after the donuts were all attached, we flipped the entire thing right side out.hmmm. not really loving the way that is is looking! (and sorry about the NON vaccumed carpet!)
(i tried again to get the rings to the very edge of the duvet, but it still looked the same...not pretty, to say the least, BUT...if it worked, then i thought that i could live with it. at least for my sons room...)
now---to see if they HOLD the duvet cover in place...
***i came back a week later to find that two of the donuts had come loose. i asked my son if he had pulled them out, and he hadn't. i snapped them back into place, and a few days later, one of the same ones and one different one was loose. (in fact, after 2 weeks, only one remained in place)
in my opinion, these are pretty much worthless. (sorry duvet donut people) they made the duvet bunch up at the corners, which i found unattractive, and they didn't even hold the duvet together, which is what they claimed to do. maybe other people who have used them think they are great and love them, but i would not spend money on these again.
this item was purchased by me, and the review is my opinion about my experiences with this product.
