Stay Cool While You Sleep This Summer.


Majority of us have endured the discomfort of trying to get to sleep on a really hot night and just end up tossing and turning which leads to a sleepless night. Now that summer is here, we are sure to have a few really hot humid nights ahead.

Rest assured though there are many different measures you can take in the bedroom to keep you cool while you get a restful night’s sleep without overheating.


A few tips and tricks you can implement this summer to keep you cooler as you sleep.


  1. Avoid keeping the curtains or blinds open all day

    By keeping the sun light out of the room will help the room keep cool, especially on those really hot days.

  2. Investing in the right pillow

    Cooling Pillows and at the Manchester Factory, we stock a couple of different options to keep you cool as you sleep.

    Bas Phillips Odyssey Living Gel Ice Cool Quilted Pillow The gel beads, along with a woven cover, increases airflow and maximises heat dispersion from the neck.

  3. Natural Bedding

    Bedding that is made from natural fibres such as bamboo, cotton or linen offer more breathability then those that are made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester.

    At the Manchester Factory, our number #1 Selling sheets are the Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton Sheets. Not only are these sheets incredibly soft to touch they are more breathable then and allows the heat to escape which keeps you from warm at night. These sheets are naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial and moisture reducing all leading to a cooler night’s sleep.

  4. Using a Summer Quilt /Doona

    Upgrade your super warm winter quilts to a lightweight summer quilt. We recommend the Sienna living Bamboo Quilt for summer which features a 200gsm 100% bamboo filling which is ideal for those who don’t want the weight of the blanket. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, odour-resistant, chemical-free, dust mite and mould resistant making it an excellent choice for allergy sufferers. We rate this quilt warmth 1 out of 5 blankets.

  5. Using a bedside fan or air-conditioning 

    When using a fan a little tip is to position the fan across from a window so the wind from the outside combines with the fan to make a cooling breeze. 

  6. Stay Hydrated

    At any time if you aren’t hydrated your body temperature will rise as your body doesn’t have enough fluid to sweat and regulate core body temperature. So simply have a glass of water before bed and keep one next to your bed.

  7. Cold Showers

    Not only will they clean the clamminess off the day they will also bring down your temperature.

  8. Avoid strenuous exercise before going to sleep

    Exercise is a great way to improve your overall quality of sleep. However strenuous exercise close to going to may keep you body temperature.
