Summer of 2015 has been hot and sweaty! I spent too many hours poolside watching my kids swim practice and at their swim meets. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that they’re active athletes but many of those days were what I’ll describe technically as – super HOT. I had heat on my mind one day when I waltzed into Dollar Tree and found a Cooling Sport Towel for $1. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try it so that’s what I did.
What a wonderful stroke of luck it was! I think there are different types but the one I purchased comes in a hard plastic tube. Once I took it out, you have to wet it to activate it and wring it out. You can refresh with pool water or a water fountain so it’s super practical. I tend to let mine dry a little before putting it back in the tube. It states that it is machine washable and reusable but I have not tried that. What are your thoughts, have you used one of these cooling towels?
If you’ve tried the $1 version and the more expensive versions available I’d love to read an analysis. Whatever you do, don’t be a hot head.
