A cold pillow. I hadn't recently thought about how good it feels until a Facebook friend "liked" a group named something along the lines of "I flip the pillow over at night to the cool side". It reminded me of that simple joy — something I do quite a lot but don't really think about. Turns out, there's a pillow — called the "Chillow" — that's made to stay cool without flipping:Available at SmartHome for $35, I've never tried anything like this but would love to hear from anyone who has! And in the meantime, here are a few other tips we've come across for keeping your pillow cool at night:
Use satin pillow cases.
Wet your hair a little before going to bed at night.
Freeze your pillow in a large plastic bag during the day. Remove and use at night. (Hmm…would this also kill germs?)
