A frozen hot water bottle

To keep your bed fresh and cool when you hit the hay, a TikTok user in the UK shares a hack that requires a little forward planning. Instead of packing your hot water bottle away until winter, the young woman suggests making use of it this summer.

Here, instead of filling it with hot water, she fills it about two-thirds full with cold water.

After pressing lightly on it to get the air out, she closes the hot water bottle and puts it in the freezer.

Once the hot water bottle is frozen — in her case the following evening — she places it under her sheets and pillow one hour before going to bed.

The result is a perfectly chilled bed to help her fall asleep more easily! Other tips to beat the heat at night include sticking to a light meal before bed and avoiding drinking alcohol.

Alcohol or rich food requires more effort to digest, in turn making the body warmer. — ETX Studio
