Keep Yourself Cool While You Sleep… And Drown Out Noisy Neighbours

So, you’ve tried your best to get your noisy neighbours to not be quite so annoying, but nothing’s worked (or you’re not in a position to do anything about it). As a final option, you can try drowning out the noise with a simple desk fan by your bed, which, seeing as it’s close to summer, will also cool you down.

The approximation of white noise produced by than fan should block a decent amount of the offending sounds, though how much depends on the size and position of the fan.

Not something you’d be keen on doing during winter, but with the weather warming up, it’s another good reason to have a cheap air mover on hand.
