Fight Back Against Summer’s Hot Nights with SHEEX® Performance Cotton


3 minute read

The hot nights of summer can make getting the sleep you need seem impossible. From tossing and turning to wet, sticky sheets, summer sleeping can be miserable.

Luckily, SHEEX® has some tips and tricks as well as a new line of bedding to help you stay cool while the heat rises.

Be Choosy About Where You Rest Your Head

Using a cooling pillow can help you sleep better during summer's hot nights. SHEEX® Performance Cooling Pillow keeps your head cooler at night which means you'll fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Try Cold Feet

Dip your feet into cold water before climbing into bed. Your toes are very sensitive to temperature because there are a lot of pulse points in the feet and ankles. Cooling those down will also cool down your overall body temperature.

Make a Homemade AC Unit

Creating a cooling breeze will help keep you cool during summer’s hot nights. Fill a roasting pan with ice and set it in front of an oscillating fan to create a homemade air conditioner. The breeze will also blow cold water from the ice, generating a cooling mist.

Turn Your Box Fan Around

Instead of setting up the fan to blow air around your room, turn it around so that it will suck hot air out of the room and keep you cooler.

Consider Cooler Cottons

Using light-colored, lightweight sheets on your bed promotes ventilation and airflow. The SHEEX® Performance Cotton line is designed to give cotton-lovers the hand-feel of traditional cotton with the moisture-wicking technology of performance fabric. Its unique moisture management system uses a blend of absorbent and repellant yarns allowing the fabric to absorb moisture and disperse it along the surface more quickly, keeping you cool, dry and comfortable while you sleep. This summer, use SHEEX® Performance Cotton sheets on your bed and leave traditional cotton sheets behind. Our unique technology will keep you cooler and more comfortable when the temperature rises.

Use a Sound Machine

Trick yourself into thinking you’re cool by using a sound machine. The soft sounds of falling rain, an ocean breeze or a bubbling stream can soothe your mind and make you feel like you are in a cooler place.

Create a Minty Mist

Brew peppermint tea, let it cool completely, pour it into a spray bottle and use it as a cooling and refreshing body mist.

Unplug Before Bed

You’ve heard it over and over, but it’s a little different this time. Turning off your electronic devices has additional benefits aside from limiting your exposure to blue light. On hot nights, turning off and unplugging your electronics will eliminate the heat they produce as a result of carrying an electrical current.

Eat Lighter Meals Before Bed

Eating a heavy meal will increase your metabolism and boost your body temperature. Eating raw foods like fruits, veggies and salads will help keep your body temp low.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking 8 ounces of water 30 minutes to an hour before bed can help you sleep more peacefully and stay cooler and hydrated. When it comes to staying cool on hot nights during the warmest months of the year, remember these tips and choose SHEEX® to stay cool while you sleep.
