These Copper-Infused Bed Sheets Will Keep You Cool (and Bacteria-Free) All Summer Long

Everyone needs a comfortable, quality night's sleep, and while we often consider our mattress to be the biggest factor, perhaps we should spend more time thinking about our sheets. Right now, as warmer weather is approaching and you may be swapping your winter flannels for summer cotton, a new brand has launched a Kickstarter campaign promising cool, comfortable bedding during those sweaty summer nights.

The sheets and pillow cases from Savmos are made with high-end cotton-bamboo-blend fabric to provide an ultra soft feel. The key component, though, is the copper-infused fibers imbedded in the weave. The copper serves as a dispersion conductor, pulling your body heat away from you and distributing it more evenly across the surface area of your bed. This helps regulate your body temperature as you sleep, allowing you to sleep more comfortably and not wake up in a sticky pool of your own sweat.

And to top things off, the copper in the sheets naturally repeals dust mites and other allergens, and is said to be 99.4 percent antibacterial. Our oft-neglected sheets can become a breeding ground for bacteria if they aren't washed often enough. Savmos sheets promise to not only control moisture and airflow throughout the nights, but naturally stave off bacterial growth between laundry days.

The sheets are offered in twin, king, and queen sizes with prices ranging from $150 to $325 for a full set. Pillow cases come in two sizes, starting at $39. You can check them out here on Kickstarter.

Photography was once a skill reserved for those who could spend big money on the proper equipment, but with the convenience of a digital camera in everyone’s pocket, it's a much more accessible hobby for the general public today. Now you can learn how to improve your skills with the Pro Photography and Photoshop Bundle, which includes 20 courses that cover the top programs you need to know to capture and edit killer photos.

For anyone with absolutely no knowledge of Photoshop, you’ll want to start with the Photoshop Made Easy course, where you’ll go through all the essentials from layers and filters to levels and curves. From there, you’ll have access to six Photoshop-specific courses to take your knowledge to an expert level. You’ll learn how to use Photoshop with light effects, in cinematic settings, for outdoor portraits and landscapes, and through the eyes of an aspiring graphic designer. There’s even a course focused on how to apply Photoshop tools as a busy entrepreneur.

If that deep dive into Photoshop felt like a fast-track past the initial camera skills, go with the Photography Master Class to learn the basics like the exposure triangle, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and manual mode shooting.

When you’re comfortable behind the camera, you’ll find the eight included courses for Lightroom immensely helpful. You’ll learn how to edit and retouch photos to remove blemishes, modify colors, adjust wrinkles, and all the other techniques the pros use. Learn about free presets to make your workflow speedy across all four versions of the Lightroom software.

This massive course collection is available for just $40 for a limited time.
