Why cooling sheets are the best thing you'll buy all summer

If you're a hot sleeper, getting a solid night's rest can be difficult. It's especially hard if you can't sleep without some kind of bed covering. Sleeping on top of the comforter, vulnerable to all manner of aliens and demons, is just not an option. 
That's where cooling bedding — pillows , comforters , and sheets — comes in. (For more info on why sleeping cool is so important, check out our story on cooling pillows .)
