Overnight Fever Relief: Wet Washcloth vs. BeKOOOL Gel Sheets

Every cold and flu season we can expect a flow of runny noses, scratchy throats and the inevitable worrisome fever. Thanks to a partnership with BeKOOOL and my affiliate links, I’ll explore how the medicine-free gel sheets provide medicine-free fever relief for a good night’s rest. 

Wet Washcloth vs. BeKOOOL Gel Sheets

A washcloth will fall off

As a child, I remember my Mom putting a cool, wet washcloth on my head when I was fussy from a fever. Although it temporarily felt better, I couldn’t move around much with a washcloth on my head.

BeKOOOL gel sheets have a gentle, painless adhesive that allows the cooling strip to stay put. So if your little one wants to move around or get comfortable on your lap, the gel strip won’t fall off.

A wet washcloth needs moisture

To stay cold, a washcloth needs additional moisture to feel comfortable. Maybe it’ll last an hour or two. Will the water drip off on to pillows and clothes?

BeKOOOL gel sheets don’t need refrigeration to stay cool. Keep them in a cool, dry place though. Read the directions on the back of the box for instructions on use, applying them to a child’s forehead and how to store them.

A wet washcloth doesn’t stay cold

You need to keep a wet washcloth moist and cold to bring comfort. I know some parents use cooling packs to comfort kids too. But how long do they last?

BeKOOOL gel sheets last up to eight hours. That means your little one can get a full night’s rest with these gel sheets on their forehead.

  3. You are so right! Parents definitely need to stock up on these gel sheets before the kids get sick. It can be difficult to get out to the store for supplies when you have a sick kid at home or if a fever strikes in the middle of the night.
