Cool Bed Sheets


Do you have trouble sleeping in summer?

Do you feel hot and uncomfortable when you sleep?

I sure did! It took me years to realize that I should really look into buying cool sheet sets to help me through the heat in summer. In such heat, especially when sleeping at night, it would drive me mad.

Before I purchased some of the sheets I’ve recommended below, I would want to have a shower every now and then, just to feel freshened up. I always used the air-conditioner, every night without fail, when the temperatures got too hot. However, when you are on a tight budget, using an air-conditioner all night isn’t feasible either. My husband thought I was ‘high maintenance’, but really, the summer heat is unbearable when you are trying to sleep.

Just like we do in the colder months when we buy flannel bedding, why do you think it’s any different in summer? We should be changing the material we sleep on to make us feel less hot and sleep more comfortably.
