If you're absolutely roasting in the heat, this clever hack might be for you. Many are taking to social media to share a brilliant way for keeping cool in the heatwaves - and all you need is a duvet and a fan. Check it out in the clip below:
I mean, we're all roasting at the minute, right? Temperatures have gone as high as 30C, and plenty of people are desperate for ways to cool down.
Well, this hack is straightforward enough - all you'll need is to curl up inside a duvet cover, with a fan blowing cold air into it.
The duvet then expands and 'blows up', leaving it looking like a giant quivering pillow from the outside... but essentially it's a lovely cool space inside which you can get nice and comfy, despite the hot weather.
Pretty smart, eh?
Over on TikTok, people have been posting videos of themselves trying out the hack, and users left absolutely sweltering in the heat have responded enthusiastically in the comments.
One person wrote: "Omg that is genius I'm acc gonna try that now."
Tagging in a friend, another user added: "We should do this at the weekend if it's still hot."
A third person was more vociferous, writing: "Omg we are doing this!"
Naturally, a few people had concerns - some related to the wisdom of leaving sheets next to electrical items, and others querying the safety of leaving a sleeping person (or worse, a child) inside a duvet, at the mercy of a small fan.
It should go without saying, but you obviously shouldn't let a child do this unsupervised.
Others still were frustrated that they couldn't get the hack to work - maybe you need a stronger fan?
Of course, there are other life hacks on offer, when it comes to staying cool in the heat. Another TikTok user has revealed how to turn your ordinary fan into an aircon system.
In the video, Sam instructs viewers to close all windows and doors, before grabbing 'something cold like a frozen water bottle'.
Seems easy enough so far. Does it get more difficult than this?
No, it turns out - the next and final trick is to put the frozen water bottle behind a desk fan.
The theory seems to be that the bottle will make the air from your fan colder, which would be nice considering my fan usually just blows warm air right back in my face.
If it works, it might finally stop us all saying 'it's too hot' in the summer, even though we spend the majority of the year complaining about how cold it is.
