Can you please help me find a cooling pillow that actually works?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (13681points) September 23rd, 2018

I bought two my pillows for $150 and they still need to be flipped at night every 5 minutes. I was thinking about a purple pillow for $160, but I don’t want to be fooled again. What pillow or trick do you suggest? Like putting the pillow in the freezer for for 5 minutes or so? I prefer Bed Bath and Beyond or Amazon, but any place that is legitimate will work for me. There might be a Canada Post strike soon so I might have to order from UPS or Fed Ex.

You may be in luck here. I moved from Montana (cold) to southern Utah. (waay hot) I found a product called a “Chillow” which was a God send so to speak and it made sleep possible on hot hot nites. Look it up. Over the years I have had several and found the mini Chillow to be just great. It is a device you add water to and put it on my regular pillow and for me it’s been wonderful.

@si3tech I cancelled my order. Amazon chat said not to buy it. That it isn’t a pillow.

Oh its a refillable gel packet. I bought a similar thing for my eyes. It only keep cold for 5 minutes. It was a POS.
@si3tech How long does the “Chillow” stay cool? Maybe I could re order it from amazon? Is $34 Canadian a fair price?

My chillow has arrived. Just a bag that holds water. Put in fridge to cool off. Did not put in freezer from the warning. Will try tonight. Will update Fluther as to how it went.

Update. It only stays cool for an hour. Still better than nothing.
