Fun and Creative Ways To Stay Cool This Summer
Summer is fast approaching and as temperatures rise, it's time to find innovative ways to stay cool and beat the rising temperatures. Luckily, we have some fun and creative ways to rescue you from the sweltering summer heat.
Sip and Stay Hydrated
As the summer heat intensifies, staying hydrated becomes a top priority. When it comes to choosing the perfect drinkware for the season, tumblers stand out as a fantastic option. It's a simple yet effective way to make drinking water a fun and enjoyable experience, ultimately helping you stay hydrated throughout the day. So, embrace the cuteness and sip from drinkware, like our Sweet Summertime Tumbler, that brings a smile to your face—it's a small act that can have a big impact on your water intake and overall well-being.
- Portability and Durability: Summer calls for outdoor activities, from beach trips and picnics to hikes and road trips. Tumblers are designed to be portable and durable, making them the perfect companion for all your summer adventures.
- Stylish Designs: Who says practical drinkware can't be stylish? With their eye-catching designs, these tumblers add a touch of fun to your summer sips.
- Eco-Friendly Choice: Opting for a tumbler is not only beneficial for your summer beverage experience but also for the environment. By using a reusable tumbler, you significantly reduce your reliance on single-use plastic cups and bottles. This eco-friendly choice helps reduce plastic waste, contributing to a cleaner and greener planet.
Soothing Cold Compresses
When the summer heat becomes overwhelming, a cold compress can provide instant relief. Create your own refreshing cold compress using Doe a Deer's Swedish dishcloths. These versatile and absorbent dishcloths can be used for various purposes, including as a cooling aid. Here's a simple method to make your own cold compress:
- Place the dishcloth under a running tap or immerse it in a bowl of cold water. Allow it to absorb the water fully.
- Gently squeeze the dishcloth to remove any excess water, ensuring it remains damp but not dripping.
- Fold the damp dishcloth and place it in a sealable plastic bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator or freezer to chill.
- Once chilled, remove the dishcloth from the bag and unfold it. Place the cold compress on your forehead, neck, or any other area of your body that needs cooling. Allow the compress to stay in place for a few minutes, and you'll feel an instant sensation of coolness and relief.
Remember, cold compresses are not only refreshing but can also help alleviate headaches, reduce swelling, and provide relief from hot flashes. Keep a stack of Doe a Deer's Swedish dishcloths handy in your freezer, so you can always have a cool compress ready whenever you need it.
Cocktails and Mocktails
When the summer heat is at its peak, there's nothing quite like sipping on a refreshing cocktail or mocktail by the pool or under some shade to cool down and unwind.
A refreshing recipe you can try is a Watermelon Pomegranate Mint Cooler
* 2 cups diced watermelon
* 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
* 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice
* 4-6 fresh mint leaves
* 1 cup sparkling water or club soda
* Ice cubes
* Optional: 1-2 ounces of vodka (for a cocktail version)
- In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth.
- Strain the watermelon juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher to remove any pulp or seeds.
- Add lime juice, pomegranate juice, and mint leaves to the pitcher and stir well.
- Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the watermelon mixture over the ice.
- If making a cocktail, add the desired amount of vodka to each glass. Otherwise leave out the vodka and enjoy this delicious mocktail.
- Top with sparkling water or club soda and gently stir.
- Garnish with a mint sprig or watermelon slice for an extra touch of freshness.
