Here are six tips on how to stay cool when you don't have air conditioning . . .
1. Turn off lights and unplug TVs and computers.
2. Keep the shades closed. It seems obvious, but it makes a BIG difference . . . especially in rooms that face the sun.
3. Use windows and fans. If there's no breeze, use fans.
4. Use cotton sheets. Cotton sheets let your skin breathe and even wick away moisture from your skin.
5. Freeze your sheets and pillowcases.
6. Grill instead of using the stove.
