HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE KEEP YOUR COOL Stave off the heat CLEAN WALLS Strip wallpaper WATER WISE Save on flushing Ready to cool it Ready to cool it PAULINE PRIEST Keeping cool during summer doesn't always mean switching on the airconditioner. There are other ways to stay comfortable. A refreshing drink with plenty of ice will quench the thirst, a dip in the pool will cool the body, and a fan pushing the air around will ease the heat. Airconditioning can bring some turbo- charged relief however it is something that should be used in moderation. Keep hydrated with plenty of fluids but choose your drinks wisely. Caffeinated beverages and alcohol contribute to dehydration. Eating smaller meals more frequently will also help lower the heat from your body's metabolism. Wear light-coloured, loosely woven clothing. Cotton is an ideal fabric for absorbing moisture and keeping the body cool. Wear a hat in the sun. Dampen a cool towel and wrap it around your neck. Applying a cool towel or ice to a pulse point, or spraying a mist of cool water on the body, will also help.
