Cooling blankets are a great solution for those hot summer nights when you want to stay covered but don't want to overheat. But which side of the cooling blanket should you put against your skin? Here are some tips to help you out.
Single-Sided Cooling Blankets
If your cooling blanket is single-sided, then the cooling side should be placed against your skin. This is because the cooling materials are designed to come into direct contact with your body to help regulate your temperature and wick away moisture. The other side of the blanket can be placed facing up, as it will not have any cooling properties. The other side is usually made of cotton or bamboo fiber, making it breathable and perfect for warmer days.
Double-Sided Cooling Blankets
If your cooling blanket is double-sided, like our Elegear Cooling Comforter, then either side will do because both sides are always cold. In this case, it doesn't matter which side you place against your skin, as both sides will provide the same cooling effect. You can choose whichever side you prefer based on color or texture.
Here are four photos to help you identify which side is the cooling side. Photos 1 and 2 show both sides of the Elegear Cooling Blanket, while photos 3 and 4 show both sides of the Elegear Cooling Comforter.
Tips for Using Cooling Blankets
Here are some additional tips for using your cooling blanket:
Don't use a heating pad or electric blanket with your cooling blanket, as this can counteract the cooling effect. The cooling blanket is designed only for hot days.
Use it with or without AC.
Our Elegear Cooling Blanket and Cooling Comforter are versatile and can be used with or without AC. When used without AC, the material is already cool and will keep you comfortable all night long. However, if you feel that it's not as cool after it contacts your skin for a while, you can flip it over or use the part that doesn't touch your skin, and it will be cool again immediately! But if you want to experience the ultimate in cool and comfortable sleeping, try using our Elegear Cooling Comforter with AC on. The cooling effect is even more pronounced, creating an ever-chilling sensation that you'll love. So whether you use it with or without AC, our Elegear Cooling Comforter will keep you cool and comfortable all night long. Give it a try and see the difference for yourself!
In conclusion, if your cooling blanket is single-sided, place the cooling side against your skin. If it's double-sided, either side will do because both sides are always cold. Stay cool and comfortable all summer long with a high-quality cooling blanket!
