Instead of hot water bottles cold ones

Just heard this morning on the morning program instead hot water bottles they where saying to fill your hot water bottles with cold water put it into the freezer and take it to bed with you. I thought that was a good idea. Not thought of that before or put rice into a sock and put that into the freezer and sit it round you neck. Just some ideas to keep you cool 😎 ☀️☀️ Hope that you all are keeping nice and cool 😎. I am enjoying the weather now as the winter ❄️ is to long and cold. Xxxx

If you have one of those wheat bags you heat in the microwave you can also put them in the freezer for a bit. Then put the cold wheat bag on your neck. Really cools you down.

Hopefully by trying out these tips we will all have a lovely cool sleep!

My own is just using a cotton top sheet, (no duvet or blanket), to stop flies or moths landing during the night and a small fan directed at my head.

Hi bluebell99

Good idea. I have just tried the hot water bottle with cold water and took it out the freezer it worked well was really surprised. Not as good as a fan though. xxx
