In classic British fashion we’ve spent all summer complaining about how cold and wet it is, then as soon as we get a bit of warm weather everyone moans that it’s too hot.

If you’re one of those people who struggles with hot weather (see anyone from Wigan) this product could be just what you’re looking for following a long hot day when all you want is to get a good night’s sleep. 

With temperatures predicted to soar as high as 36C this week, it seems like Argos may have come to save your sleep with this gel mattress topper.


The cooling topper will fit a single bed, and all you have to do is pop it underneath your sheet and drift off into refreshing slumber. Apparently it's also useful for headaches, sunburn, hot feet, hot flushes and to combat high temperatures in general.

It’s not the cheapest, coming in at £69.99, but who are we to put a price on a good night’s sleep?

If the mattress topper is seeming a little out of your price range, why not treat your feet instead with these Rapid Relief Premium Reusable Cold Slippers?

All you have to do is remember to pop them in the freezer before you head out and when you get back home you can indulge in their delicious toe cooling powers. 

According to the description they’re designed with 'contour-gel technology', meaning they stay nice and flexible and will mould to your feet even when they’re frozen. Lovely. 


They're currently available on Amazon priced at just £12.08, which actually seems reasonable considering you can use them over and over again.

The product description says: "Tired feet after a long day? The patent pending, Rapid Relief Premium Reusable Cold Slippers deliver cold therapy to reduce swelling and relieve foot pain and discomfort. 

"Our Contour-Gel technology allows the compress to mould to the foot, yet remain flexible even when frozen. Manufactured with premium fabric, our reusable cold slippers are easy to use, and designed to provide total coverage to the sole and top of the foot."


And judging by the reviews, they’re a massive hit! One person said: "My feet get hot at night, to the point where I often can't get to sleep. These provide instant soothing relief."

Someone else said: “This was a gift to a friend who was having a gout issue. She said when she put them on 'the angels sang'. She loves them.”

A third added: "These slippers are amazing... at the end of a day after a good workout my feet get into these slippers for an amazing, refreshing rejuvenation! I put them in freezer when I take them off so they can be ready for next day.”

Let’s just say these bad boys could be about to come in very useful…
