5 tips to keep it cool
The second heat wave of this year is a fact and the temperatures can rise up to 40 degrees this week! You can’t deny it; it's hotter then hot! Of course you will one day have your own luxury villa with air conditioning, but until then you will have to be creative yourself to make it as pleasant as possible. We hope that you can keep your head (and apartment) cool with the tips below.
1. Keep windows and curtains closed during the day.
Once the sun is down, you can open your windows (and doors) for a refreshing breeze.
2. Avoid equipment that generates heat.
For example a hair dryer and hair straightener, but cooking food also provides more heat in your home. Not a punishment to eat outside for once right? But probably with an exploded hairstyle..
3. Create your own air conditioning.
Your apartment has no air conditioning, but you can simulate the effect of an air conditioning yourself by placing a bowl of ice in front of your fan. This makes the air flow much cooler.
4. Cool off with a foot bath.
By cooling your feet, the rest of your body will also cool down. Enjoy a nice cold foot bath and you can take it easy again.
5. Sleep without a blanket.
Who needs a blanket during this heat wave? Remove your blanket and only sleep under a sheet or even completely without it. You can also put your bedding (or part of it) in the freezer for an hour before you go to sleep.
