Summer is here! As you feel the heat on your skin and sweat pouring down, you might want to keep yourself cool. Maybe some of you are already planning to go to the beach or to some, just stay in-doors and keep cool. Here are some inexpensive and easy hacks that you can do to make your summer even better.
1. Quick Coolers
When you need a drink to cool down from the summer heat, it’s not a good idea to drink something warm or hot. Have a cold drink instead, to quench that thirst at the same time you refresh your feeling.
To have an instant cool drink, fill your water bottle with half water then freeze it in the freezer. When the water ices, you can add the drink that you fancy and shake it a bit to make it cold faster. Just make sure you don’t block the opening so you can fill it and drink it on-the-go!
2. Aloe Vera Soothing Cubes
Have you experienced a sunburn after swimming and just wanted it to go away faster or at least sooth the pinching pain? Next time you hit the beach, mix some Aloe Vera with water and freeze it in an ice cube tray.
Treat your sunburns or even mild burns with this simple hack. Aloe Vera is known as a burn plant to soothe burns. You can use natural Aloe Vera or the Aloe Vera you see on stores today.
3. Powder for Sand
Some of you might be going to the beach this summer. If you need a quick fix to get those unwanted sand on your body, use baby powder to get rid of it. You can also use cornstarch as an alternative! The powder absorbs excess moisture and releases the sand sticking on you. For beachgoers out there, this is one helpful hack for you.
4. Unnoticeable Secret Containers
Is there no one available to lookout for your things in the beach? Use an empty container like shampoo and lotion. Place your valuables inside. No one would want to steal a bottle of lotion or shampoo. Right? But to be safe, it is still better to keep an eye on your valuables everywhere you go.
5. Popsicle Drip Catcher
Ice Cream Popsicles are an easy go-to solution for a hot weather, but it easily melts. Most of us, kids and the kids at heart, would like to enjoy having a nice cool popsicle on a hot and sunny weather. But the problem is, it gets messy with all the drips. Not anymore!
Use a paper cup or a cupcake liner. Poke a small hole that has almost the same size as your popsicle stick. Stick your popsicle in and VIOLA! You just made yourself an instant drip catcher.
6. Cheap Waterproof Case
