ReviewAndARecipe: Great Ideas for riding the heatwave

Print  Friendly and PDF
Yeah, this is obviously the first choice..Plenty of freshly made juice or crisp cold water to quench that thirst that seems never-ending at this point.
Or it could be just chilling indoors underneath this budget-friendly/eco-friendly fan..Did you know that "moving air" is at-least a few degrees cooler than "still air". Instead of relying on air conditioners alone use ceiling fans to save on electricity bills.
This gyro style twin-turbo fan with its antique finish has stolen my heart ..doesn't it look awesome? The whole system turns thrice per minute all the while the twin high-speed fans rotate in different directions for some serious air circulation.
At work, use this awesome tropical-themed portable fan that has you dreaming of White sandy beach, balmy island breeze and tropical trees..
Have your outdoor party at dusk,under this lighted Oasis umbrella and entertain your guests with Fruit Spritzers and Tropical Fruit Pops.
People who only have a small balcony/patio can still enjoy warm weather evenings with this beautiful, serene looking coppery solar lanterns with state-of-the-art LED technology that takes advantage of all the sunlight at daytime and does some good to the planet without using any fossil fuel.
