This hot and sticky weather is no fun at night.
Remember going on holiday (particularly somewhere exotic) and skipping down the plane steps into a shimmering wall of heat? This is currently what it feels like in the UK. Only without the ‘fun holiday’ bit.
However, there is a solution. Read on and keep your cool.
Now, it’s not the most elegant solution, but it absolutely works. I first did this when I was suffering from night sweats during menopause and thought I was going to melt into the bed.
- Take one clean tea towel, a thin cotton, or linen one is best.
- Rinse it in cold water.
- Wring it out just enough so it doesn’t drip.
- Lie down.
- Place over lower legs.
- AND SLEEP!
I promise it will cool you down instantly.
A fluffy towel won’t work as it’s too heavy. I used one of those heavier ‘glass cloth’ towels once and it worked a bit too well, I was chilled to the bone!
