POPSUGAR Love Wtf WTF?! by GiggleSugar 7/10/08 0 Shares Like us on Facebook If you haven't heard, the Bay Area's having a heat wave. (Translation: normal Summers anywhere else.) But for folks here, don't listen to KTVU's tips on keeping cool. Soaking kids in alcohol baths works for me every time!

I been bathing kids in Jack Daniels for years....damm! rabidmoon 6 years Actually one really good tip that nobody seems to say is one I picked up as a kid on our ranch from the guys that came to help my dad finish a deck...I used it years later when hiking and its great for that too. Take a bandana,(the oldschool kind) and fold it on the diagonal until it looks like a little belt, about 2 inches thick. Now, soak it in ice water. Give it a reasonable wring-out so that its still chilly but not totally out of moisture again, and tie it around your neck with the wide part at the back. It helps to cool your head, even though its 'round your neck. If you can take the cold and you really like the chill effect, tuck little pieces of ice into the wet bandana as you roll it up. :D TheEnchantedOne 6 years Yup, they're referring to rubbing alcohol.
