Cooling Down in the Summer

By plantladylin

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.

When I used to work outside, I regularly carried a large cotton bandana or scarf that I would wet in the hose and drape around my neck. It makes a great difference!

Kyla, it really does make a difference. Last year I bought a couple of those cooling towels from Lowes and always wear one around my neck when I'm out in the yard; once wet they stay cool for a good long while. I can't imagine working out in the heat and humidity of summer without it.

I put my wet towel in the freezer and get it really cold.
