Evaporative cooling bandanas really work

Standard low-tech Australian food chiller:

We tend to use the personal evaporative cooling trick at work in summer, but we don’t bother with fancy crystals or the like.

Just soak a handkerchief or scrap of rag and drape it around your neck. Re-dampen from your water bottle or a nearby creek when appropriate.


We had an evaporative cooling vest for our elderly dog, it really helped keep her cool on summer pee walks in the park. A lot of conversations with nosy strangers started with them scolding us for putting a “sweater” on our dog, and ended in either grumbly disbelief or wonderment…
