    • If your bedding is made of satin or synthetic materials, it is better to replace them with cotton or silk pillowcases. Cotton sheets absorb sweat well and cool the skin.
    • Wear pajamas made of cotton as they breathe better. You can also sleep without clothes.
    • Another way to cool your bed is to put your sheets and pillowcases in the refrigerator. Just spread all the cool bedding over the bed before you get into it.
    • Memory foam mattresses show high heat retention. They are good for winter, but not for summer. If you have such a mattress, you can buy a cotton mat and, after cooling it in the refrigerator, put it on the mattress.

So try to keep your rooms at this temperature. Many air conditioners have a night mode function. If your air-con does not have this feature, close all the windows and run the air conditioner for 2-3 hours with the coldest mode on. Then turn it off and check that the temperature is just right.
