Beat the Heat Roundup: The Best of Icy Cool Tricks [Beat The Heat]

20 Lug/09

Today we draw our Beat the Heat theme week to close, and what better day to end on than National Ice Cream day? Photo by lepiaf.geo.

Over the course of the week we shared all sorts of tips and tricks to help you stay cool this summer. Let’s recap the icy cool goodness:

One of most enjoyable ways to stay cool in the summer is to enjoy an icy and refreshing treat. We shared our favorite homemade ice cream recipes, how to make frozen yogurt pops, and the best summer foods to help stay cool.

On the automotive side we showed you how to cool your car as quickly as possible and recharge an air conditioner that has lost its mojo. We didn’t neglect your home’s air conditioner, it’s important to give it a check up at least once a year. If you’re in desperate straights and the air conditioner is on the fritz, we even showed you how to make your own air conditioner out of a cooler and some fans.

In the clever tricks category don’t forget to use a damp towel to cool a room, the “Egyptian Method” to sleep well on a hot night, and a wet scarf to cool your body off.

Sometimes you can’t flat out beat the heat so you might as well use all that summer sun to your advantage. Learn how to cook dashboard cookies, build your own sun jar, and other creative DIY solar projects.

For more tips and tricks, including an excellent roundup of your heat-beating advice, check out the rest of the offerings from Beat the Heat week.
