Cooling Down in the Summer

In the heat of summer, If you get overheated easily, as I do, soak a thin kitchen towel in cold water, wring well, and place around your neck. Re-wet on occasion to keep cool.

I see that at Lowes and home depot they are selling or giving "not sure" theese special towels for the employees to use and they keep them cool while working, great idea for they have to stay out in the heat to serve us customers all day long, I think these towels are a great idea and when I was there shopping I wish I would have had one around my neck since we were in the triple digits.

That is a good idea; we've been having low and mid 90's here but with the high humidity factored in it makes it seem like triple digits. I haven't seen any of our Lowes' or Home Depot garden center folks wearing them but the cashiers do have large, powerful fans blowing on them which I'm sure they are grateful for! I love the Duracool towels and now have two ... I'm thinking about getting one of the bandanas too for tying around my head when I'm working outside. I'm getting old and the heat plus humidity really bothers me anymore ... it's getting so I only want to work in the yard/garden in the winter months! Green Grin!
