What's The Best 'Cool' Pillowcase?

By Kristin Hunt

Can’t fall asleep on a summer night? Just flip your pillow to the cool side. You’ve probably heard this advice since you were a kid, and might’ve used it to get through some warm evenings. 

But what happens when you’ve flipped your pillow so many times that both sides are radiating heat? Unfortunately, most pillows can’t regulate body temperature. They simply absorb it, so that when you’re hot, the pillow’s hot. But there’s an easy fix to this frustration, and it lies in your pillowcase.

Cool or cooling pillowcases use specially designed textiles that minimize moisture, boost airflow, and regulate body temperature. Because they slip over your existing pillows, they’re often cheaper than cool pillows, which contain gel and memory foam. And they’re easy to find online or in chain stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond.
