We have discovered a fabulous item to help with this heat. We have been living in these for the last few days. And, yes, if it touches your clothing, some of the water is wicked into the cloth. But I think this is a benefit as it keeps that part of my body just a little cooler, too.
I seldom say anything about a specific product, but, oh, my . . . this one has changed our lives for the better. I had seen them over the years, but we were always skeptical that it would actually work. Well, it DOES!
It must be experienced to be believed. We were VERY skeptical, having seen them advertised previously, but on Wednesday, a friend was here working on our deck with one around his neck and I asked him about it. He couldn’t say enough good about it, so I asked him to pick us up a couple when he was at Lowe’s getting the paint for our deck. He did, and we have been living in them for the last two days.
Yesterday I put it on my bum knee, and it just about froze me out. Made a big difference in my pain level. DH walked over to the gym, pulling it up over the back of his head like the picture on the product package shows. When he got there, he called me to gush about how absolutely unbelievably cold it made his head during the walk.
We just got back from doing errands in town, and we both wore the scarves – it really made a difference. We continue to be amazed. I have no clue how they pull this off, but maybe one would help if you are suffering with the heat right about now.
I can’t imagine what they’ve done to effect this, but it sure works! I’m thinking of buying a whole bunch of them and making a running suit out of them for me! (Kidding!) Well, I guess I’ll just settle for keeping this one around my neck all day, re-wetting it about every four hours.
Caveat: We have very low humidity here, so this may not work as well in an area with high humidity because part of the process probably has to do with evaporation.
