Ah, the cold side of the pillow.
Some clever people have created a pillow that stays cold, meaning that you can now properly savour and enjoy one of life’s most satisfying sensations: the cold side of the pillow.
Not familiar with the cold side of the pillow obsession? Fear not, for we will explain why you need this, in the simplest of terms:
Your head is hot. It is constantly emitting heat. This is great, except for the fact that your head doesn’t actually enjoy being that hot all the time. So when you sleep, your head carefully transfers some of this heat to your pillow. Your pillow absorbs this quite happily, until it too is now far too hot! Your head is hot, your pillow is hot, and now you wake up with your head lying in a pool of your own sweat. Yum.
In the olden days, people would flip their pillow around, to rest their heads on the cool side – and repeat the process above several times in the same night. The cold pillow however saves you the hassle – and this is why it is such a great invention.
So how exactly does it work? The JML Chillmax cold pillow uses special gel to provide cooling without using electricity or refrigeration. Designed to disperse heat, the cold pillow transfers the heat from your head into the air around you – kind of like a cooling radiator in an engine! The pillow is carefully designed to stay at room temperature in all circumstances. For science: room temperature is approx. 21°C, whereas healthy body temperature should be at around 37°C. It is designed to be cool, but not uncomfortably cold. If you want it cold, this pillow does that too – just put it in the fridge and cool it down for a bit.
What does it feel like? A cool, soft, soothing leather glove. Not your type of thing? The cool pillow also works in a pillowcase.
