#1. Chilled Pillow Hack

While it may seem unconventional, some say it’s surprisingly effective!

Just wrap a plastic bag around your pillow to keep it dry, then place it in the fridge for the day. When bedtime arrives, slip the cool pillow under your bed covers for a refreshing night’s sleep.

#2. Window-Chilled Towel Trick

To improve your sleep in hot weather, try this tip from laundry expert Deyan Dimitrov: soak towels in cold water and strategically place them around your house. This will cool the air and create a more comfortable indoor environment.

Open the window and hang the wet towel there, essentially creating a DIY natural air conditioner that works wonders on hot nights.

“The method allows trapped water to evaporate from the surface of the towels and cool the air flowing around your house. Since this hack can be fashioned out of existing household items, it’s a cheap and useful alternative for houses that don’t have access to air conditioning,” Dimitrov says.

Deyan Dimitrov also suggests adding a few drops of essential oils, like lavender, to the softener compartment of your washing machine when laundering towels. This not only elevates the scent but also contributes to a more delightful and aromatic experience.

#3. Ventilator Ice Cube Boost

For a pre-sleep cooldown, position a plate of ice in front of the ventilator.

This simple hack efficiently cools down the room, ensuring a more comfortable sleep environment.

#4. Heat-Free Room Zone

Clear your bedroom of all heat-emitting electronic devices, especially those charging. Electronic gadgets generate unnecessary heat, contributing to elevated room temperatures that can disrupt your sleep.

#5. Revitalizing Foot Bath

Take a cold foot bath before bedtime for a dual benefit: cooling off and promoting better sleep. Cooling your legs triggers a natural response in your body, enhancing circulation to that area and inducing relaxation for your entire body.

#6. Frozen Socks for a Cool Night

Experience a refreshing night’s sleep with frozen socks, especially during warmer nights. Simply toss the socks in the freezer and put them on before bedtime. A cool and dreamy night awaits!
