We recently asked our readers on our LA Eastside Facebook page to give us some tips on staying cool through this heat spell of ours. We received some helpful and interesting responses (I’ve already tested a few myself.) The suggestions were so entertaining I decided to share them here.
Q: Any tips on staying cool? Sleeping on the porch? Ice cubes in a bucket? Cold cloth on the head? Don’t say air conditioner cause that’s cheating!
-Sticking your head in the freezer, Ignacio
-Bucket of ice cold Pacificos, Ignacio
-Drink said bucket of Ice cold Pacificos in your chonies., Lu
-Ice cream!! Yummmmy!, Jenny
-The shape of my home creates a wind tunnel effect in my hallway when the window is open. So I sleep there instead., Jason
-In the mornings the houses are cool cause the shades are down a good suggestion would be to keep it that way oppose to letting the sun shine in which will eventually create heat. That’s one way to keep the house cool. To keep your self cool you can drink a lot of cold water through the day., Pierrette
-Get drunk and pass out, Jose
-Go to the store and use their air conditioning!, Elvira
-Sleep with a clean white towel on your pillow and another one under you., Joslan
-Misters on at the Audubon Center!, Jeff
-My in-laws always tell us that before they could afford an A/C they used to wet their pillow cases and put them in the freezer. Then sleep on them when they were cold., Salvador
-Wear wet clothes. Me and my bros would do that during the summer when we were kids. hehe, Elizabeth
-We use to head to Ensenada, with about 15 other families, Natalie
-Just turn on the air conditioner…..oops I’m in Texas we live with it on!, Sue
Ah, Sue you cheater! It’s okay, cool to know we have readers in Tejas!
