There’s quite a big drawback to it.
In some typically hot countries, most houses are equipped with air conditioning, but that’s not the case for every house or country. Cars, on the other hand, are increasingly equipped with air conditioning, something that most people make grateful use of on particularly hot days. It certainly helps you to stay nice and cool, but it also has a big disadvantage.
This might even make you want to not turn on your air conditioning…
No air conditioning
Before we go into that big disadvantage, though, let’s first talk about what you can do to cool down if you don’t have air conditioning in your car or if you don’t want to turn it on. Here are some great tips:
- Wet washcloths: Hang a few wet washcloths in front of the air blowers in your car. The air that comes out of the blowers will feel a lot cooler.
- Wet hair: If your hair is wet, your scalp will be able to cool down much better. Your entire body temperature will go down because of this.
- Ice cubes: Place a small bowl or container filled with ice cubes on the floor of the car. The ventilation will blow cooler air throughout your car because of the ice cubes.
- Bottles of water: A frozen bottle of water can come in handy in a lot of different ways. Use it instead of the ice cubes mentioned above or wrap it in a towel and place it in your neck if you have to wait in a traffic jam for a long time. When the ice has melted, you’ve got fresh, cold water to drink!
