Television meteorologists in Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral have been reporting on the high temperatures every day this month. They say it is the hottest summer on record in nearly ten years. And it’s not just Florida that is feeling the heat. Folks all across the nation are suffering. To help out, here are five ways to cool off in the Southwest Florida heat for TikTok Tuesday.

The heat can be deadly to both humans and animals. If you have a pet, check out some tips here to keep them safe this summer. In addition, the ideas stretch beyond the heat. I’ve seen tons of DIY tips of how to out smart mother nature’s hot blast right now. One of them involved wetting sheets of aluminum foil and placing them on windows. The foil reflects the heat and drops temperatures around the windows drastically. If that seems like a bit much, try to keep your curtains closed, even during the day, to block the searing sun and the heat it projects into your home.

The ideas below offer everything from herbal beverages and sweet pads, to DIY air conditioning set ups for those rooms that don’t get much air. Another idea that everyone is doing, placing a bowl of ice or ice water in front of a fan. The air it blows drops significantly.
