As the nation grapples with record-breaking heat this summer, sales of cooling products are similarly surging with mercury levels. Across the country, people are searching high and low for ways to cool off in the sweltering temperatures – not only for their own comfort, but also for the wellbeing of their furry companions. 
One product making a splash on bargain e-commerce site Temu is a cooling mat for pets, priced at only $3.68. In response to the extreme heat, this humble mat is soaring in popularity and flying off virtual shelves. Available in a variety of six colors and five sizes, from small to double extra-large, there’s an option to cater to every pet and home. Made with 75% nylon and 25% polyester, the three-layer mat combines breathable mesh with a padding layer to offer both comfort and relief from the heat. 
Pet owners who’ve tried the mat are loving it. Marianne Ashmore, the owner of a medium-sized lab/shepherd mix, said, “It is very cool and my dog loves it…I ordered the XL and it is perfect for her.” Another satisfied customer, known only as SS, shared, “Our guard dog loves his new cooling mat. Orix didn’t want to share his cooling mat.” 
Jewel Spencer, another pet owner, said in her review: “My Morkie loves playing and sleeping on her new cooling blanket. Bailey loves it so much that I end up ordering another one in pink for her bed. I ordered a size 2XL for her. It is huge, but it can be doubled for more cushion.” 
But it’s not just our four-legged companions who are feeling the burn. Humans, too, are in desperate need of budget-friendly cooling solutions. While some have the luxury of heading to the beach or taking a dip in the pool, many city dwellers are turning to innovative gadgets to help them keep their cool. 
A portable household air cooler, retailing at $16.99, has become a sought-after item. The compact device doesn’t just circulate air; it sprays a refreshing mist, creating a mini oasis in your living room or office. Its popularity isn’t surprising, given the versatility and affordability it offers in battling these oppressive temperatures. 
Another product that is capturing consumers’ interest is a USB-rechargeable neck-worn fan, priced at $9.99. The appeal of this fan lies in its convenience – whether you’re commuting, working, or simply lounging at home, you can have a personal breeze wherever you go.  
Mario Rodr, a fan of the fan, attested, “This fan neck is pretty awesome. It has five settings, it tells you how much battery life you have left…and yes, this is a good item to buy for the heat, especially here in Arizona. I’ll buy another one and another one.” 
Temu is a Boston-based online marketplace that has gained a reputation for having some of the best prices on a huge range of practical goods. From kitchenware and household essentials to craft and pet supplies, many consumers have flocked to the site to check out its selection and pick out bargains. According to the UK’s Daily Telegraph, prices on Temu are on average half that of those advertised on Amazon.  
Its bestsellers list has also become a barometer of what value-savvy consumers are buying. Lately, sales of cooling mats, portable air coolers, and neck fans have taken off as the demand surges for practical, cost-effective solutions to the summer heatwave. With temperatures topping 90 degrees in 31 states in early July, expect that sales of cooling products will continue to surge as people reach for their water and air-conditioners.
