- Wearing wet pajamas cools the body
Keep a damp cloth in front of the window to cool the house
Unplug all electronic devices for better cooling
- Turn off the lights to cool better
Keep sheets in the freezer to cool
Before going to bed at night, put your sheets in a plastic bag and place them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes. This trick will allow you to enjoy a little moment of freshness, while you fall asleep.
Slightly moistening your pajamas before sleeping may help you sleep better, despite the heat. Also, prefer loose cotton pajamas, in order to allow the skin to breathe better. Synthetic materials are also to be avoided. Note that even the sheets should be lightweight cotton. Indeed, this material allows better ventilation, and promotes the circulation of fresh air in the bed.
To refresh the ambient air of your bedroom, it is advisable to hang up a wet towel or a sheet moistened with water in front of the open window. Thus, the breeze that will pass through the damp linen can lower the temperature of the room overnight.
In addition to consuming energy and weighing heavily on the electricity bill, electronic devices produce heat, when left plugged in. That said, unplug the appliances you’re not using to lower the heat in your bedroom and save energy.
