If you happen to be in that situation or your AC clonks out, I have a perfect solution for you. Doing this will ensure that your bed is nice and cool.
I don't know if you realize, but most people in the U.K. and other parts of Europe don't typically have air conditioning. The cost isn't justifiable for only a few weeks of hot weather.
So this one lady was kind enough to share an awesome tip with her TikTok audience. And, I love that it's so simple and easy to do in a snap.
All you need is a bog-standard hot water bottle — but this time, you won't be filling it with hot water. Instead, fill it with half-cold water. Then, just put it in your freezer for the whole day.
Then, put on your bedsheets. You can even slide one inside your pillow cover so your pillow will stay cool as well.
I can't believe I've never thought of doing something like that. It's pretty genius, no? And it makes total sense. Everybody falls asleep much faster when they feel cooler. That's pretty much a fact. Look it up, ha, ha!
I bet all the people without AC really appreciate this hack. It must be such a relief to find something that really works. What a godsend, huh? I love this idea.
And yes, doing this might make your bed a bit damp. My suggestion is to wrap the water bottle in thin material to reduce the amount of condensation. Either way, I'm sure it will evaporate quite fast because of the heat anyway.
It's best to dedicate a special water bottle for this purpose. Once you do this, you won't be able to use it with hot water anymore. So you may want to stock up on a few hot water bottles.
Our power went out yesterday for about three hours, and it was hot. We were concerned about not being able to sleep, but thankfully it did come back on. Otherwise, I could've used this hack, ha, ha!
