Tip: Way to keep cool in the heat

If you are outdoors in hot temperatures or you don't have air conditioning, spray yourself with cool water. No spray bottle? Empty a harmless household cleaner bottle with a sprayer--like window cleaner--and wash thoroughly. Fill with cool water and periodically spray your legs, arms, neck even your hair, if necessary. (I'd avoid the face, in case all the cleaner isn't out. Use a cool wash cloth for the face). A breeze or a fan will hit the wetness and help cool you. This technique has saved lives of those susceptible to heat stroke, such as the ill or elderly.
