Use Damp Towel to Keep Neck Cool

One of the best ways of dealing with summer heat as you work outside your home is to wear a clean wet towel around your neck. If your face and neck become sweaty (if you are a fella, you ladies start to "glow"), the towel will serve as a great wipe and refresher. At the same time, it will help to cool off your face and neck temporarily.


When the towel gets warm, just remove it and wave it in the air for a few seconds and it'll be slightly cool again; enough so that it continues to work to keep you a little more comfortable. It seems that when your face and neck are just a little bit cooler, you are able to keep going until your job is done. It's a good way to avoid overheating or ending up with a heat stroke.

Hubby is very good at following this little rule now that we've gotten older especially. Every year, I think it has gotten just a little bit hotter in our Florida, so don't forget to wear your sun hat when you're out in it.

This is very timely, now that the hotter weather is even hitting our more Northerly climes. PookaRina, your daughter's one smart cookie!
