Wet Sheets

Wet sheets are a common complaint of people experiencing night sweats. Excessive nighttime perspiration may soak through pajamas and onto the sheets. If bedding isn't changed quickly, wet sheets may cause discomfort through the night and interfere with sleep. Sweat may also cause damage to mattresses if the perspiration is substantial and leaks through the sheets.

Individuals regularly waking up with damp sheets should avoid cotton sheets. Instead, moisture-wicking sheets may alleviate some of the discomfort.
