Save yourself from the heat and make your life easier than it is. Here are 10 Summer Hacks to Get Through the Summer:
- Baby Powder
Baby powder is the easiest way to get sand off your body. Next time you’re at the beach, through on some baby powder where you have a lot of sand. Start wiping it off with a towel and you’ll be as clean as ever.
- Sunscreen on Muscles
If you’re a fit guy, make yourself look a little better by spraying more sunscreen in areas that you want to show off. Abs look really shiny and toned with sunscreen.
- Blanket in the Freezer
Having hot nights? Before going to bed, throw your blanket in the freezer. Fold it up and place it in the freezer 20 minutes before you go to sleep. You won’t have a problem falling asleep after that.
- Get Heat Out of the Car Fast
Live in a hot area? The car gets really hot once you get inside as you know.
Open the driver window all the way down only. Go around the other side and wave the passenger door back and forth. This is the fastest way to get heat out of your car. If you turn on the air, leave your window crack open so the heat can get pushed out. Close it after about 2 minutes. Check out this post for more Car Hacks!
- Get Spray Deodorant/Antiperspirant
Those stains you get on your shirts from armpit sweat, they’re from your deodorant.
Sprays don’t leave stains and work better to keep your pits dry when it’s hot.
What you can do with the stick though is apply it before sleep. It will soak into your armpits throughout the night when you’re likely to not be sweating. It helps contain sweat much better for the next day.
- Drink A Lot of Water
You know this, but do you know why?
Water reduces odors from your body by flushing out the toxins inside every time you go to the bathroom. This way if you sweat, at least you won’t smell disgusting.
Another reason is to keep yourself hydrated so you can stay healthy out in the heat.
- How to Cool Off Fast
- Cold water to the face (don’t dry face completely)
- Ice pack on your pulse points (side of neck right under jaw bone, wrist, and feet)
- Fill a cup with ice and blow into the cup (cold air will blow right back to your face)
- Frozen Grapes
Wash grapes, toss them in a bowl, throw them in the freezer for 10 minutes. They have this unexplainable texture to them that is so satisfyingly cold. Easiest and fastest snack for those summer days at home. For other Quick Snacks click here!
- Dryer Sheet Behind Fan
Put a dryer sheet used for laundry behind your fan. It will pull the smell out of the sheet and blow it into your room. This will keep your room smelling more fresh and less like a sweaty jungle.
If you can, try adding a bowl of ice in front of the fan too. It makes the air 10x cooler.
- Scooping Hard Ice-Cream
Having a hard time scooping that ice-cream that feels like a rock? Rinse your scooper under hot water before every scoop. It comes out like butter.
You can also place your entire ice-cream container in a plastic bag before you put it in the freezer. Next time you use it, the ice-cream will be way softer and easier to work with. Check out these other amazing Food Hacks!
