How to Stay Cool During a Heat Wave

It may be scorching outside, but there are steps you can take to make sure you stay cool inside. Erica Katz, a lifestyle expert, says if your air conditioner isn’t keeping things cool enough, grab a bowl of ice and a small fan. She says to place the bowl in front of the fan for an instant cool breeze. Katz also says you can create your own cooling pad by stretching a sock open, pouring some rice inside, and tying a knot before popping it in the freezer.
