Why You Shouldn’t Let Pets on Your Tempur-Pedic Mattress

Cute 8 weeks old Pied French Bulldog Puppy resting in her bed

Is there anything better than cuddling with your pets? You could argue the point, but we truly believe resting with your furry friend is an important past time you should share with them. Now, where that takes place is a different story. It’s common for people with pets to just let their animals jump up on the bed to snooze with them, but we can’t emphasize enough how bad this is for your Tempur-Pedic mattress.

There is a time and a place for napping with your little companion, but it’s not when you’re going to sleep. Read on to discover why your fur buddy should probably not participate in your bedtime slumber.

1) Dust, Pollen, and Allergens – Oh My!

If you have an outdoor cat and a dog that gets a lot of outside playtime, then you’ll probably be most affected by the mayhem that comes with that. These animals may be clean, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring in fun allergens from outside. From dust particles to flecks of pollen, your pets have a way of bringing these inside and setting your allergies on fire.

If your pets jump into your bed every night, they’re likely to track those unwanted allergens all over your sleep space, which can easily be absorbed into your mattress. Don’t ruin your Tempur-Pedic Mattress or aggravate your senses by letting your “furiend” sleep with you.

2) Accidents Happen

Kids can’t always help it, and neither can your pets. Sometimes they get the urge to release their bodily fluids, and then it’s just too late. Your mattress is suddenly wet and smelly and there’s just no going back. So, the best way to keep a clean bed, free of from animal accidents? Just don’t let them on your bed.

You should always try protecting your Tempur-Pedic with a mattress cover anyways, but unfortunately, liquids still have a way of soaking through the protector. Keep the pets off and you’ll never need to worry about a mess occurring.

3) Catch a Bug

If you let your cats and dogs up on your bed often, there’s a good chance they’ll bring in more than just dust and pollen from outside. Germs, ticks, and other icky things could easily crawl their way into your bed sheets, and even your mattress!

Of course, even if your animals get all the appropriate shots to prevent ticks, worms, and other creepy crawlies, your animals still have microscopic bugs that can easily find their way into your bed which can ultimately mess with your immune system. To prevent waking up with a fever, keep the pups and kitties off the bed.

We know it’s a hard thing not allowing your pets on the bed, but a clean Tempur-Pedic mattress is much better for your health. Try finding another spot you can hang out with your animals on, such as a futon, or consider getting your pet their own bed! Either way, keeping the furry fellows off your Tempur-Pedic will keep your mattress, and you, in a better state. If a pet has ruined your bed and you’re ready for a fresh start, stop by our store today to find a Tempur-Pedic bed void of animal hair.

Washing Delicates Like a Pro in a GE Washer

Woman putting clothes in a washing machine

Raise your hand if you put your laundry in two piles: whites and everything else. This is, of course, a very daring and reckless way of doing laundry, but it is also a surprisingly common one. If you don’t take the time to separate your dirty clothes before throwing them in the washer, you’ll find out the hard way that dark colours can bleed onto lighter clothes and also how easily shreddable those delicate really can be.

Luckily, GE washers prove just how little of a hassle washing your clothes can be. Especially when it comes to thoroughly washing the most fragile of delicate garments like your great great great great grandmother’s handkerchief. GE Washers are prepared to handle it all with these tough, yet gentle, washing features.

1) Steam Assist Feature

Steam not only looks magical, it is magical. If deeply cleaning fabric fibres and loosening stains isn’t magic, we don’t know what is. The Steam Assist feature is a great technique to use on your delicate laundry because it’s tough on stains without hurting or ripping your important items apart. Use this GE washer treatment when you want to get out some mysterious stain that needs some special magic to get it out.

2) Precision Dispense Feature

Other than having an efficient wash, GE washers now have the ability to slowly release detergent throughout a wash cycle with the Precision Dispense feature. Normal washing machines immediately release all of the detergent from their dispenser when you start the cycle, but GE washers know that better cleaning performance for delicates happens when the detergent you added splits into smaller doses throughout the wash cycle so that the load continues to stay soapy.

3) Delicates Feature

If you are really at a loss for what to do with all your fair clothes, GE washers happen to come equipped with a delicates feature, which automatically takes the guesswork out of what you need to do. But if you feel that you want to tweak with the way the delicates feature washes, you also have the ability to change specific settings, such as the amount of water, temperature, and speed of your cycle. Customize your delicates cycle just the way you feel fits your needs.

Washing Delicates Like a Pro in a GE Washer (3)

No one should ever feel helpless when it comes to doing their laundry. That’s why we’re proud to sell GE washers here at BrandSource: because they make washing clothes easy yet sophisticated.

Functional Places to Put Your Samsung Laundry Pair

Functional Places to Put Your Samsung Laundry Pair

When purchasing a home, it’s not always a first thought to make sure there is a room specifically for the laundry machines. Generally, there will always be a setup in the garage for you to fall back on, but going out to the garage can be very inconvenient for washing clothes. From it being too hot or too cold to just feeling isolated, cleaning your clothes in the garage can be a bit uncomfortable.

For those of you wanting to get a new Samsung Laundry Pair and place them in a brand new area, here are a few setups that would help maximize your space to the fullest.

Hallway Closet

This laundry pair placement is usually the go-to after the garage. If you have a large hallway closet that can fit two Samsung laundry machines, you should take full advantage of it. Samsung washers come in sizes from 4.3 cu. ft. to 5.0 cu. ft. so you’ll be able to go as compact or as large as you want in order to accommodate your space.

This is a fantastic place to put your laundry pair because the closet keeps you in the house, and it usually connects rooms together, making it an easy place to drop off dirty clothes. Store your winter coats and everything else you had previously in your hallway closet somewhere else. It’s just too good of a spot to give up!

Laundry pair in mudroom


Not everyone has a mudroom, but if you do, placing your washer and dryer pair in it would be a convenient idea. The mudroom is located near an entryway of the home, making it the perfect place to remove clothes and wash them immediately. It’s a place that is meant specifically for removing your shoes and other dirty garments before tracking the mess they bring into the rest of the house.

For example: If you have dirty socks, just take them off and throw them in the wash. If you want a warm jacket before going out in the cold, throw it in the dryer for a couple minutes before leaving. It’s right there allowing you to keep your home immaculate by not tracking in wet, dirty clothes from the rain.


I’m sure you’re thinking that adding a laundry duo to a bathroom seems icky. We get it, there’s a toilet in there and having that next to your clean clothes sounds just wrong. But, let’s think about the positives.

You’ll be able to throw a load of laundry in on the Super Speed feature, and by the time you’re done getting ready for the day, it’ll be done! Not to mention, you’ll prevent your bathroom from ever getting littered in clothes and towels. You could even warm your towel up by tossing it in the dryer and pulling it out so it’s nice and warm when you’re done.

Laundry pair in kitchen


Putting your washer and dryer in the kitchen may seem like a counterintuitive idea, but it’s actually rather functional! Especially if you have a small space, putting your Samsung Laundry Pair in the kitchen can help keep your home open.
Depending on the way your kitchen is set up, this could require a little construction to ensure your washer and dryer is

pushed back against the wall and out of the way. You could even go with a Samsung compact laundry pair to help increase the space of your kitchen and avoid another crammed room. Not to mention, you could make breakfast for the kids and get some laundry done at the same time!

Visit our store to get help figuring out where to put your Samsung washer and dryer. Our experts will be glad to offer their services to make your home exactly the way you’ve always wanted.

Spooky Cookie Recipes to Try in Your Whirlpool Range

Dracula Dentures for Halloween made of cookies and marshmallow

The witches are cackling, the jack-o-lanterns are glowing, and trick-or-treaters are getting ready for their favourite night of the year.

That’s right, it’s Halloween season! That time of the year when all you want to think about is scary movies and sweet treats. But the beginning of the month also means waiting 31 whole days until your excuse to chow down on candy and pumpkin-flavoured everything. How will you survive?!

How about practising your cooking talent and try new spooky cookie recipes in advance? That sounds like the perfect excuse to fire up your Whirlpool range and make some tasty treats to us! What better way to get your Halloween spirit on than indulging your sweet tooth – or sweet fang?

Try out a few of our favourite “scary” recipes, baked to perfection in one of our Whirlpool convection ranges, for an unforgettable Halloween!

Ghost Meringues

Halloween meringue with spiders on black wooden tableRecipe from Smart Schoolhouse

You’ll need:

  • 2 large room-temperature eggs
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large decorating bag
  • Black decorators gel

How to make them:

1. Preheat your Whirlpool range to 200 degrees. As it heats up, separate out the whites of your eggs. You won’t be needing the yolks for this recipe!

2. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar together by hand or with an electric mixer until frothy. Gradually add in sugar, continuing to beat until the mixture is stiff enough to hold its shape.

3. Prepare a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and spoon the mixture into a decorating bag. Holding the bag upright, squeeze out the meringue onto the sheet. Press the tip of the bag into the meringue as you squeeze to give the ghosts their curvy shapes!

4. Bake for about an hour until the ghosts are firm and a little brown on the bottom. Turn off the oven but leave the cookies in the oven for another hour or two to crisp and cool.

5. Once the cookies are firm to the touch, use a toothpick and your black decorators gel to draw spooky faces on your ghostly friends.

Peanut Butter Spiders

Halloween spider cookies on orange and black backgroundRecipe from allrecipes.com

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sugar (for rolling dough in)
  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 24 chocolates, either Lindt Lindor Truffles or mini Reese’s cups
  • 48 candy eyeballs
  • ½ cup chocolate frosting
  • Small pastry bag

How to make it:

1. Preheat your Whirlpool to 375 degrees and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Combine the first four ingredients together and beat until smooth. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla extract, continuing to beat the mixture.

3. Combine the other dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, and salt) in a small bowl and slowly add them to the wet mixture until it comes together into a dough. Separate the dough into 48 small balls.

4. Spread the remaining ¼ cup of sugar in a shallow bowl or tray and roll the dough balls through it, coating evenly. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, until golden brown.

5. Remove the cookies from the oven and quickly, before they start to cool, press a dimple into the middle of each cookie with a spoon or citrus reamer. Allow the cookies to cool for about 10 minutes before beginning to decorate.

6. If you are using chocolate truffles, cut the spheres in half (if you’re using Reese’s cups, you can skip this step). Place your candy into the dimple of the cookies with the rounded side facing up. Scoop some of your chocolate frosting into a pastry bag and squeeze a small amount onto the back of each candy eyeball, and stick two onto each chocolate candy.

7. Use the pastry bag to pipe 8 thin legs onto each cookie, starting at the base of the candy, to make your spider’s legs. Allow about 30 minutes for the frosting to harden before eating.

Dracula’s Dentures

Dracula Dentures for Halloween made of cookies and marshmallowRecipe from delish.com

You’ll need:

  • 1 package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough OR 1 batch of your favourite cookie recipe
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • Red food colouring
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 bag slivered almonds

How to make them:

1. Bake your cookie dough according to package directions. Be sure to place a layer of parchment paper between the cookie dough balls and the baking tray, so that they don’t stick. When the cookies are done, allow to cool completely. For a more authentic, denture-style look, cut the cookies in half.

2. While the cookies are baking and cooling, scoop some of your vanilla frosting into a bowl and stir in several drops of red food colouring. Mix until the frosting is smooth and a dark red to pink colour.

3. Spread a thin layer of frosting onto each cookie half. Place mini marshmallows along the round edges of your cookies (or around the whole thing if you haven’t cut your cookies in half) and add two almond slivers for fangs.

With these delectable delights on hand, you’ll be ready to take on any ghouls and ghosts that come knocking at your door! And if you need a new oven or range to do justice to these yummy monsters, come down to [store name], and we’ll help you pick out the perfect appliance to make all your Halloween treats.

Best Healthy Halloween Treats

Best Healthy Halloween Treats

As we are becoming a generation concerned with what we eat, I thought I would examine healthier but fun alternatives to offer at Halloween. When I was a kid, I barely made it home with my loot as I ate quite a few treats while “on the road”. Now that I am older, I consider myself very lucky I got through those years with no cavities. Many are not so lucky!

So how do we get ready for that night of goblins and ghouls without being known for that house that gives out chocolate covered tofu? Well, of course, we always assume that treats mean some sugary-laden food that sticks to the roof of your mouth or gets stuck between your teeth! Yes, that is true, however, we can redefine Halloween treats without spoiling it for the little monsters!

If you are concerned about your offerings, let’s look at some alternatives.

1) Many big box stores now offer all types of healthy snacks in little packets. So instead of reaching for the fat-laden chips or sticky candy, oven-baked cheesy crackers like Goldfish, yogurt or chocolate-covered pretzels, or your own homemade trail mix in a colourful bag will be a hit!

2) I love the idea of stickers and temporary tattoos to give as a Halloween treat. Hear me out! It’s all in the presentation so get some tall clear cellophane bags, and add to the stickers and tattoos, a balloon or two, a Halloween themed pencil for good measure, and OK if you must drop a little box of raisins!

3) Fruits are no longer considered a safe alternative but dried fruits in a closed box or bag are a great idea. Some fruits are dried up to look like long colourful gummy strings that are fun to eat. Choose the ones that have no preservatives and no added sugar as fruits are sweet enough!

Best Healthy Halloween Treats (2)

4) School supplies and items you use at home are another great way to add fun to Halloween. During this time of year, most dollar stores have themed items like pencils, erasers, goblin topped pencil sharpeners, toothbrushes covered in ghosts and vampires making the bedtime routine more fun! Halloween coloured toothpaste, glowing toy pumpkins or nightlights can be added as well! The ideas are endless. And yes, adding a little treat to eat is also a good thing provided it is wrapped and healthy.

5) If you absolutely must give candy, be a wise consumer and read the labels. Did you know that mini peanut butter cups contain 23 grams of sugar while a mini Hershey chocolate bar contains only 5 grams?

A little imagination will go far and yield great results. Think outside of the box like making orange and black coloured popcorn by adding natural food colouring to the kernels and watch the colours explode! Hair clips with goblins, socks with pumpkin eating monsters, the dollar store has all you need! This will give the little ghosts knocking on your door something to talk about with their friends at school! And just like that, you’ve become the best house on the block!

5 Ways to Make Entertaining Easier

Five Ways to Make Entertaining Easier

As we move from casual outdoor summer barbecues to more formal indoor meals and gatherings, we thought we would round up our five best tips for entertaining with ease.

1) ‘Tablescape’ With What You’ve Got

Don’t worry about the perfect Pinterest worthy table, work with what you’ve got – you will certainly amaze yourself and maybe even start a new family tradition. Grab your dishes, cutlery, napkins, and tablecloth and go wild from there. Get your kids involved by finding pinecones they can paint, or if you are feeling crafty yourself find some pretty branches on a walk that you can spray paint gold. Some twinkle lights or candles set the mood and your table speaks with personality and you worked with what you’ve got. We love this idea from blogger A Pretty Fix.

Simple Fall Pinecone Bowl Decor

2) Grab a Chair, Any Chair

We’ve talked before about our love of the ‘accent’ chair and entertaining is really where these bad boys come in handy and make entertaining for a crowd easy-peasy. Go around the house and gather up all your unique accent chairs and use them in the living room for a lap only dinner party or around the dining room table for an eclectic (and practical!) seating solution. Reserve your armchairs for ‘heads’ of the table where you have a bit more room.

Check out our post How To Mix and Match Dining Room Chairs.

3) Extend It!

There are so many amazing table extension options out there today. When a table can go from seating six to sixteen I call that entertaining with ease. A small round table, perfect for your everyday family needs, can now become awesomely oblong and welcome extended family. Some tables now feature simple storage for their extensions, making this even easier!

4) Take a Seat

Take a seat at the table after you’ve got it all gussied up. Can you see clearly across the table? Do you have enough room for water pitchers or wine bottles? Do you have everything each seat needs within easy reach (cutlery, napkin, glasses)?

5) Surrender to the Mayhem

Know that no matter what you do, no matter how perfect the table is, or how delicious the food is, there will be spills. There may be tears, but there will most certainly be laughter. Embrace the chaos of hosting during the long Fall and Winter months and know it will be summer again soon and the mess can land on the lawn once again.

Lean Back Into Comfort With Today’s Modern Motion Furniture

Lean Back Into Comfort With Today’s Modern Motion Furniture

We all know the chair. It’s the one in the corner with two nice sofas flanking it. It’s the one your father sat in. It’s the chair you raced to sit in before your siblings when Dad wasn’t watching TV with you. You know the chair. It’s the ugly brown or plaid recliner with the creaky seat and finicky side handle. Maybe it’s got an old blanket draped over it to try and hid it, like in our house. You loved everything about this chair except how darn ugly it was. If only there was such a thing as ‘attractive’ reclining furniture…..

It’s here! It’s real and it’s fabulous. Yes, lean back into comfort with today’s modern motion furniture. No longer ‘the chair’ in the corner, today’s modern motion furniture can hide in plain sight while providing endless options like massages, extra lumbar support, a headrest or a footrest.

With such style in the ‘stationary’ position, you’d never know this sofa actually provided restful and relaxing (and reclining!) seating for the whole family.

Bugatti Design Reclining Sofa

Or what about this entirely electric powered living room set, where no matter where you park you are sure to be swept away by comfort.

Elran 4089 Reclining Sofa

We all know sitting for any length of time, especially when sitting improperly, can hurt. With extra lumbar support (like below) your back will thank you for being so stylish.

Palliser Leighton Reclining sofa

No matter which option you choose, today’s motion furniture will be once again that piece everyone runs to. Only this time it’s so nice its Mom’s chair…not Dad’s.

Best Slow-Cooker Breakfast Meals

Bacon and eggs, waffles and sausages, yogurt and fruit: these are what breakfasts are made of! Not so fast! According to some internet research, there are actually hundreds of varieties of breakfast foods enjoyed all over the world. So, if you have been eating eggs, ham, yogurt, or cereal, get ready for a wild idea in breakfast foods.

First, a little history. Although the formerly known “crock pot” was patented in 1940, the slow-cooker technology only really soared in the mid-1970s when women returned to the workforce in large numbers. Various appliances brands created their own unique design, sizes and features and so, the competition began to create the best appliance since the toaster!

Some of the benefits from using a slow cooker include creating nutritious meals without the constant supervision and so, freeing up your time to do other tasks like reading a book! Additionally, working outside the home allows you to return after a long hard day to a delicious ready-to-eat meal.

Slow cookers were mostly designed to cook meats, stews, and soups. Pulled pork or chicken recipes are plentiful, but did you know that your favourite breakfast meals can be ready for you at your wake-up time? Imagine sleeping through the night as your slow cooker is magically cooking up your favourite recipe.

Here are my top 2 favourite breakfast meals to wake up to and that get me out the door satisfied!

1) Oatmeal with cinnamon and apples!

There is nothing better on a cool fall morning than warm oatmeal and apples. I start by spraying the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray or oil and then add the few ingredients. I prefer to use 1 cup of steel cut oats, as these contain the highest nutrition. I add 1 ½ cup of coconut milk, but you can choose your favourite, as well as 1 ½ cups of water, 2 cored and diced apples, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. I leave it on slow for about 7 hours and voilá! I like to add some toppings like nuts and fresh berries just before serving.

Breakfast pie with eggs and sweet potatoes!

2) Breakfast pie with eggs and sweet potatoes!

If you love your eggs in the morning, you must try this! In a bowl gently beat 8 eggs, then add 1 shredded medium sweet potato, 1 lb of sliced breakfast sausage. I spice it up with a teaspoon each of basil and garlic powder with a small diced white onion. We love mushrooms and red peppers, so I include some of those with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Pour the mixture into your well greased slow cooker on slow for 7 hours to make sure the sausage is cooked through. Remember that left-overs will still be delicious so making a batch won’t be a problem.

These are only 2, but your local bookstore will have several recipe books dedicated to the slow cooker and breakfast. Search online for those meals that take as little as 2 hours for large batches of food for a brunch or breakfast for dinner! Ingredients include all kinds of grains, vegetables, meats, eggs and cheese. For you out there who love your breakfast sweet, you will find recipes with jams and bread, buns and honey. Whatever you enjoy eating in the morning, have it ready and piping hot.

How Does Spending More Time Indoors Affect Your Sleep?

How Does Spending More Time Indoors Affect Your Sleep

The water skis and the canoe are put away with the tennis rackets and frisbees. The beach balls are deflated, and the garden furniture is neatly stored in their usual spot to spend the winter. You look at the empty patio and yard covered in snow and suddenly feel sad that another summer is gone. Now what?

Although many people embrace winter with the anticipation of downhill skiing, tobogganing, skating and snowball wars, many cringe at the same thoughts! The shorter days and the cold inspires me to do so much less than I do in the summer. In warmer months, I am more active in my garden, taking long walks by the river, and entertaining on the patio. While during colder temperatures, I do like the bears and hibernate. But, if not careful, it could cause symptoms affecting my sleep.

When we live a more active lifestyle we are getting more oxygen into our blood supply keeping all bodily systems working optimally and allowing us to have a restful sleep. When we spend much less energy, our metabolism slows down causing us to gain more weight, fatigue sets in, and sleep in not as restful or restorative.

Science tells us that due to the shortage of daylight, we tend to produce more melatonin causing us to feel more sluggish. Additionally, Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, brings on episodes of depression and disrupts the sleep cycle.

Colder air requires heating up our homes which can have a drying effect on our skin and sinuses making for an uncomfortable sleep. While in summer months we enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables regularly, they are less available in the colder months causing us to reach for high fat, high-calorie sugar-laden foods which will impact our bodies hormone levels and adversely affect our sleep.

Couple on a treadmill at home

Follow my tips on how I try to avoid the pitfalls of the winter blues while still enjoying the cold winter from the comfort of indoors.

1. Since I don’t like taking long walks in the snow, I make sure to get thirty minutes daily on my treadmill or exercise cycle. If you don’t have any equipment at home, view some cardio videos online and get moving every day. Nothing feels better than getting tired from a good workout.

2. When I am home all day, I make sure to open the blinds and pull back the curtains to get as much daylight into my home as possible! This will help ensure that my moods are balanced.

3. I make sure that I have my humidifiers up and running from the first day I increase the temperature on the thermostat. It is important that I keep my skin from getting dry and itchy and my sinuses moist. Nothing is worse than having an itch you can’t reach while under the covers trying to sleep!

4. I replace my darker decorative tones in throw pillows and blankets from fall to bright festive colours. Colour therapy is a must for me during the long winters as it keeps my surroundings cheerful and when the bright sun shines off the snow banks outside my windows, and streams indoors, well it just makes everything lively.

Keeping my moods high in the winter is the key to staying emotionally balanced when daylight is short, and the temperatures are low. This will yield better choices at meal and snack time, higher energy levels, and ultimately, a restful and restorative sleep!

4 Ways to Stay Cool with a Sealy Mattress

4 Ways to Stay Cool with a Sealy Mattress (2)

There’s nothing worse than trying to sleep when you are sweating and stuck to your sheets, rolling around and tossing and turning through a way-too-hot summer night.

You aren’t alone: Summer nights – while a catchy song – can make for some of the worst sleep of the year. And the hotter it gets, the worse it can be to find some comfort and fall asleep.

Don’t toss in that sweat-soaked towel, however. We’re here to help you find that cool, comforting sleep you want, even when it’s ten thousand billion degrees out. Here are four ways to beat that heat and stay cool with your Sealy mattress.

Some Basics

Before you start looking at advanced sleep solutions, there are some basics you should sure to check off your list first. Are you using light, breathable summer sheets? Ditch your heavy winter comforters and throws, you won’t be needing them for a few months. At least.

Have you tried using a fan? Some people find the ambient noise soothing, so that can help promote sleep while also creating some air circulation. Air conditioning, opening a window, or other methods to cool down your whole room can also go a long way, but assuming these solutions haven’t helped, let’s look at a few other things you can try.

4 Ways to Stay Cool with a Sealy Mattress (2)

Shower Yourself With Cold

There are two types of people in the world: Those who shower in the morning, and those who shower at night.

But, if the heat of summer is dragging you down, you might want to try cooling your body before you get into bed. One study showed that a cold shower helped people fall asleep faster and have better sleep. Just make sure to dry off well, as you don’t want to bring any extra moisture with you into an already humid bedroom.

Cooler Heads Prevail

If you are looking for other ways to stay cool, perhaps you should start thinking less about your bed and focus more on your head. More specifically, what you are resting your head on every night.

What types of pillows are you using? Have you tried a Sealy pillow with cooling technology? These pillows wick away moisture, which helps keep you cooler. And when you are fighting away summer heat, every little bit helps.

Perfectly Cool

Sometimes when you have a problem, you need a solution that was perfectly formulated to attack that problem. Something created with that exact problem in mind, and ready with a spear of solution that was sharpened specifically for whatever the problem is.

In this case, the problem is sleeping too hot. And your perfect spear of solution is Sealy mattresses. Sealy has mattresses that were engineered to help people who sleep too hot or too cold, as well as to address other common sleep problems. You’ll never be uncomfortable when you have a Sealy mattress to rest on.

Sealy offers innerspring, memory foam, and hybrid options, meaning no matter what you prefer to sleep on, Sealy has you covered.
