I Love the Cold Side of a Pillow

    The Pillow's Always Cooler On The Other Side

    It's a hot night. I'm tossing and turning trying to find the right spot. My pillow feels like it just came out of the dryer. Then, like a second chance, I flip my pillow over and the cool side greets me with affection. That just made my night a lot easier.

    I Turn My Pillow Over

    several times a night. Someone should invent a pillow that will stay cool all night. I'd buy a few, and give them as gifts.

    When I Can't Fall Asleep

    it's the best thing. I'm not sure why it's so soothing when I need my blankets to be warm and heavy, but I still love it. Recently I haven't needed the cold side of the pillow because of my medication, but I know it's there if I need it.

    One time about 5 years ago I was having a hard

    night because I couldn't get to sleep and was very sweaty and uncomfortable... So when I got up to pee I stuffed my pillow into the freezer for the couple minutes I was in the bathroom and then grabbed it right before I got back into bed, it was heavenly laying down on that ice...

    Pillow Talk

    Yes it's pillow talk time. Laying in bed. Your body flushed with heat. Tossing and turning when suddenly your hands reach out, gripping the closest thing. Twisting it in your grasp suddenly your skin is brushed with that cool touch and a sigh escapes your lips. Mmmm love the cold...

    Cooling, Comforting, And Relaxing

    When laying in bed and you just can't get comfortable or relax, you're just a little to warm...simply turning the pillow over can change those feelings immediately. The coolness on the other side can make you smile just because you know now you can relax and fall to sleep....the...

    Open Window

    I sleep with a window open. The fresh air is nice for sure but the bonus is that it helps keep the pillow cold.

    I just had to post this!

    I have newly laundered pillows. I love the freshness and now it's cold both sides. Yey!! Fresh sheets, fresh pillow, and a warm blanket. Will be having a good night's sleep tonight.

    :)

    I feel like it helps me fall asleep faster. I hate it when everything is warm and its like impossible to fall asleep because you are trying to get comfortable. When that happens to me, I just get up and walk around and wait for the blankets and pillows to cool down.

    It’s quite remarkable really,

    the odd affect this has on us. We toss and turn in bed or find it uneasy, we are unable to rest, and suddenly we remember and flip our pillow to be welcomed by this little shock of the cool surface, but now we are free to rest. What is it about the cold side? It alters your...

    It's just so soothing

    when you're really tired. Once my head touches that side, I fall instantly asleep. I hate sleeping in a hot room or on a warm pillow, I just get so irritable and I start tossing and turning, trying to find a cold spot

    Helps Me To Sleep Better

    It's just feels so good especially in the summer it sort of refreshes you and I'm sure it helps me sleep better when it is to hot. It has always been a part of my sleep ritual and I'm sure sometimes I even turn the pillow over in my sleep.

    Old Fashioned Down Feather Pillows

    I can't sleep without my pillows.  They have to be the old fashioned feather pillows.  Not the new ones with the "stick feathers" that poke you in the face.  The old fashioned ticking that is like denim with the soft down. Love the cold side of an old fashioned down pillow...

    Pillows

    I like the picture of the brand new fluffy pillows. It makes me feel so fresh! As if I had a nice shower and a fulfilling nights sleep. Crisp sheets and brand new socks. Pressed pants and a clean shave.

    They Put a Man On the Moon....

    so why can't they design a pillow that stays cool?  The cold side is by far the best and gives the best sleep.  Can it be that hard?  I can only imagine how much better my nights would be if the pillow stayed cool.  Ah, I guess we all have our dreams....
