Genius Ways Our Parents Kept Us Cool During Heat Waves
Most of us (sadly) didn’t grow up in in a house with AC and a swimming pool. But that didn’t stop our parents from helping us survive summer’s worst heat waves. Here’s what they did…
They Kept Us Clean
Because a bath is a poorman’s AC unit.
They Made New (Rich) Friends
…With those who did have pools.
¡Aguas Con Los Manguerazos!
They’d spray us with high-pressure water hoses. This not fun and it hurts.
We’d Go On Shopping Trips
To AC-equipped grocery stores. Heaven.
Or On Trips to Nowhere
Just to enjoy the AC in the car.
They Froze Everything
From paper towels, to purses, literally everything.
They Maximized Fan Power
By stuffing everyone into that one room with a janky fan.
When All Else Failed, There Was This…
Homemade icepacks. They thought this was the solution to everything ?.
