These cooling bed sheets are the secret to a sweat-free night — here are the five best sets

Image used with permission by copyright holder

If you sleep warm like many folks do, a brand new set of  cooling sheets would be an absolute treasure to find — especially during the hottest part of the summer! But let’s face it: There’s a confusing number of choices available these days, so without the proper guidance, it’s impossible to know which sheets are the best set to get. You’ll likely need a set with superior breathability, the right blend of cooling and moisture-wicking fabric, and a low enough thread count to help you overcome hot sleeping.

Word to the wise: Shop carefully, because some brands offer only a fitted sheet and pillowcases with their sets, requiring you to add a flat sheet for an additional price. Other brands include the flat sheet as part of the packaged set.

You’ll also need to find something affordable for your budget, and we feel most of these are reasonably priced. Double check the details as you choose the right bed sheets for you, as some of these offer temperature regulation properties both ways. Still, don’t worry — if you aren’t sure which brand and type of cooling sheets to buy, look no further. We’ve got the five best sets of cooling sheets to keep you sweat-free and chilled out all night! Come check them out.
