It's been well over 90 degrees F and way too much humidity for some time now. Staying hydrated is very important for all of us. Here's a use for those orphan socks we all have. Cotton socks absorb best.
There are 2 ways to fit it to your bottle:
Tip: Fill your bottle 1/3 full of water and tilt it in the freezer, I do mine overnight. The next morning, fill the rest with cold water. It goes with me in the car. Don't forget your sock!
Sorry I can't include a photo as my camera is on the fritz but you get the idea. ; )

Great idea, never thought of this, when I send my daughter to school with a frozen one, thanks.
We all seem to walk around with a half-frozen water bottle all the time here in Florida, and this will work very well. If the sock is thin, use two socks.
Great idea. Thanks for sharing Keeper.
Now this is true frugality, and truly green. You use your own water bottle, keeping a lot of the disposable ones out of landfills. You use your own water, which saves quite a bit, especially over time. It's better than that impulsive purchase out of the store fridge when you realize you are parched since it will stay cold longer, being partially frozen. As for the cozy - I have some really cool socks that will make really cool, one of a kind cozies! They will keep the water cold a lot longer - and will prevent those puddles of condensation that I hate! Thank you, Sandie - you have my vote!
This is so simple that you'd think everyone would have thought we'd all be running around with socks on our water bottles. I never once thought of it. Keeper, you are a genius. Thank you so much for sharing a great solution to my rings on tables and soggy wet doilies because I was too lazy to get up and go get a coaster.
I'm taking care of my problem today, and will make several while I'm doing it since we all run around with water bottles in this miserable hot weather.
This has got to be a winner.
