How to put a pillowcase on a king-sized pillow without choking yourself



I don't know about you, but the fastest way I know to put a pillow case on a pillow is to hold the pillow under your chin, and tug the pillowcase on, then let gravity drop the rest in. That works well for standard-sized pillows, but it is a pain when you try it on king-sized pillows. Here are a few photos for another way to put those extra-long pillowcases on extra-long pillows-- it isn't terribly fast but it takes out some of the struggle!

 First, lay the pillow down-- no tucking under the chin!
 1. Pull the pillowcase inside-out.
 2. place your hands inside the pillowcase, and grasp each corner from the inside.
 3. You'll end up with the pillowcase up your arms a bit. With your hands in each corner, grasp the corner of the pillow.
 4. Start scooting the pillowcase onto the pillow, pulling the pillow into the case at the same time.
 5. As you pull the pillow in, inch the pillowcase off of your arms and onto the pillow.
 As you see, it gets easier towards the end.
Now you can roll the rest up and get it all in. The more you do it, the faster you will get!
