Tips to Stay Chevy Cool this Summer

Staying cool during a Texas summer is something we joke about in the Lone Star State. It seems impossible to keep the sweat beads from forming the moment you step out your front door and into the summer sun and stifling humidity. The following are 15 tips to help you stay cool this summer.

1. Use a sun umbrella to keep you shaded anywhere at anytime. Traditional rain umbrellas work just fine too.

2. Stop the ice cream truck, grab a tasty popsicle or ice cream cone and remember how much fun summer was when you were a kid.

3. Wrap a wet paper towel around your beverages before sticking them in the freezer. They’ll be ice cold in a fraction of the time.

4. Reach for ice cubes whenever you can. Whether you’re at home or digging in a friend’s cooler at a soccer game, ice cubes can offer a brief escape from the heat.

5. Enjoy iced coffee instead of hot coffee. Pour a pot of coffee into your ice trays, then use those cubes for your iced coffee, so it doesn’t become diluted.

6. Carry a paper fan. It may seem a bit primitive, but a good-old-fashioned paper fan can keep you cooler than if you travel without one.

7. Use a wet towel to cool yourself and your pets down. Place that towel in the freezer or refrigerator first for a whole new level of cool.

8. Bust out the fans. Even those with fully-functional air conditioning units can use fans in stuffier areas of the home. Place one by your bed for extra comfort at night.

9. Wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight clothing can make you unbearably hot on summer days. Opt for loose-fitting clothing that wicks the moisture and heat away instead.

10. Place ice packs or cold compresses on your wrists, elbows, ankles, neck and other areas for immediate relief when you’re feeling uncomfortably hot.

11. Give yourself some space. Unbearably hot summer days are not ideal for cuddling. Sleeping or laying alone keeps your partner’s body heat at bay.

12. Find your local watering holes. The heat of summer is one of the best times to start locating your town’s nearest swimming holes. Rivers, lakes and pools are some of the best (and most fun) solutions to sweaty Texas days.

13. Stay low in your house. Hot air rises, so you may notice your upstairs bedrooms becoming outrageously hot in summer. Opt for a summer of sleeping in the basement or living room instead.

14. Step back from the grill. Steer clear of turning on the stove, oven or grill. Hot summer days are ideal for enjoying cool sandwiches and salads instead.

15. Spend some time in your new Chevy. If you’re tired of dealing with the sub-par air conditioning in your everyday driver, stop in and see us at Classic Chevrolet to feel the cool breeze of air conditioning in your brand-new Chevy.
