When summer comes, and it is *hot*, those of us who either do not have central air or don't want to shock ourselves with a huge power bill but cannot sleep due to the unforgiving heat and humidity, here is a tip.
just wanted to add to your nice tip
that, if your refrigerator has an ice maker - fill a pan with ice cubes & place in front of the fan -- nice effect !
Ceiling fans do wonders also.
In the summer I freeze a gallon of water in a plastic jug. At night I put a little fan by my bed and the frozen water bottle infront of it. It helps blow cool air on me at night and at least reduces the temperature long enough for me to fall sleep comfortably. Make sure you put a towel under it though to not damage furniture. (I live in a really old house and refer to it as "camping." It is perpetually hot in the summer and freezing in the winter.)
