Aldi Is Selling Climate Control Duvets That Keep You Cool
Few things are worse than being unable to sleep because you're too hot, but the good people at Aldi have come up with a whole range of bedding to keep you cool at night.
The budget brand's Climate Control items include duvets, mattress protectors and pillows, all of which come in single, double and king sizes.
If you're wondering what that actually means, you're not alone. A spokesperson for the brand said the following: "The climate control products work by being made with ADVANSA Fibre Technology that wicks away any moisture which helps to keep you comfortable throughout the night."
They've also got some fancy new bedding in botanical and tropical prints.
It's a much safer way to stay cool while the weather is warmer - one way, specifically, NOT to try and control your temperature at night, is to use a fan.
Digging your old fan out when you're having trouble keeping cool might be your first instinct, but believe me, it's not worth it and it can actually be really bad for you.
Yes, you might have a cool, breezy sort of sleep but you might also be making yourself ill.

Because according to The Sleep Advisor, as a fan moves air around the room, it causes flurries of dust and pollen to make their way into your sinuses - up yer nose basically.
Therefore, if you're prone to asthma, hay fever, or general allergies - that lovely bit of light wind could be doing you more damage than you think.
Equally, if your fan has been collecting dust (see introductory paragraph) then those could be flying right your way every single time you turn it on.
Add to that the potential for sinus irritation, because the constant stream of air can dry out your sinuses. If it's particularly extreme it can result in your body producing excess mucus to try and compensate (sorry about the TMI).
And if you sleep with your eyes partially open you could also be at a disadvantage because your eyes will obviously be completely dried out which could cause irritation. Don't even get me started on sleeping with your mouth wide open.
Another thing that is considered being a potential drawback to having cool air blasted in your direction is the dry skin it can cause.
Of course, if you do it for short amounts of time, you're probably going to be OK - Aldi's duvet will do the rest.
