When the temperatures soar, everyday life in non-air-conditioned rooms becomes torture. In order not to sweat too much, we present you ten gadgets for cooling.

1. Multifunctional cooling fabric

Sometimes you can’t avoid spending the whole day outdoors despite the high temperatures. The danger here is especially great that the heat will literally go to your head. In order not to get sunburned, you should have a multi-purpose cooling cloth with you. The effect is activated by getting wet or wringing and pouring and lasts up to four hours. Whether they use it as a towel, a scarf or a head covering.

2. Garden shower

A garden is worth its weight in gold on hot summer days. If you want to enjoy the beautiful weather in your own green area, but at the same time want a refreshing coolness, we recommend a garden shower. The mobile and height-adjustable water dispenser can be set up in just a few minutes and can provide you with cool water outdoors – both in the garden and on the terrace.

3. Ice Block Beverage Cooler

When temperatures rise to dizzying heights, the icicles melt in seconds. This makes it extremely difficult to enjoy a cool drink in the sun – unless you have a drink cooler. The pre-made mold is filled with water and frozen in the freezer, the prepared block of ice can then be placed on top of all the bottles in a cage and chill the contents.
Here’s the ice cooler.

4. Cooling gel pad

People who live in a loft apartment are particularly affected by the heat wave. The rooms get so hot during the day that they are also very hot at night. You can use a gel cooling pad so you can still sleep. Put the mat in the refrigerator for half an hour, then put it on the pillow or pillowcase.
You can find the pillow here.

5. Mini USB fan

When the temperatures rise to dizzying heights, there is no longer any point in opening the window: only warm air would flow. If you have to sit at a desk all day, the sweltering heat can really get to you – so a cool breeze blowing around your nose can do wonders. This is made possible with a mini fan that you simply connect to your computer via a USB interface.
The fan is here.

6. Gel face mask

Many people are prone to tension and headaches when the temperature is high. Whether it is due to oppressive heat or restless sleep caused by warm room air. In both cases, a cooling gel face mask can help. Put the mask in the fridge or freezer for half an hour, then put it on your face – after just a few minutes you will notice the pleasant relief from the cold.

7. Cooling mat for pets

Dogs and cats also suffer from the scorching heat of high temperatures and flee to the shade. If you want to do something good for your pet and help them regulate their body temperature, buying a cooling mat (combined cooling gel and foam) makes a lot of sense. The self-cooling pad works entirely without electricity – and is only activated by physical contact.

8. Portable Mini Fridge

If you spend a lot of time in the car or at the office, you probably feel the brunt of the heat. To keep your head cool, you’ll need to drink a lot – but that’s not so easy if, for example, you don’t have a fridge on site. Here we recommend a portable mini-fridge with four liters of storage space, which you can easily and conveniently plug into the socket or the vehicle socket.

9. External diffuser

Have you ever stood a little longer in front of the supermarket vegetable shelves, which are kept cool with the help of a fancy atomizer? You can also get the same effect at home or in the garden: Steam nozzles can be attached under the awning or on the outdoor umbrella – the fine cloud of tiny water droplets is said to be able to cool the immediate area upwards by up to 11 degrees .
The atomizer is here.

10. Ice cream machine

Everyone loves ice cream: in the last year alone we ate an average of 8.3 liters of ice cream per person. And 2020 will certainly be no different. Still, we’re pissed about the rising prices per scoop of ice cream, so why not go in-house? For one, you can use whatever ingredients you like best. On the other hand, you can stock up to get you through the hot days.
Here’s the ice machine.
