High temperatures have been the order of the day. Not everyone is looking forward to the hot summer weather.

Well, we know a brilliant way to cool your apartment without an air conditioner.

If you don't have air conditioning in your apartment or don't want to turn it on occasionally because you are afraid of high electricity bills, be sure to try these proven methods.

Firstly, the blinds should be closed during the hottest hours of the day. If you don't have roller blinds, just buy NRC foil. It is used to warm people who are feeling cold, but it can also be used to combat heat.

Just place it in your apartment window. The thermal foil has two sides: silver and gold. The former retains heat, so you should place it outside in hot weather.

Another simple and brilliant method is to wet your curtains with cold water just before going to bed. Just take a spray bottle, pour cold water into it and wet the curtains thoroughly.

Remember to leave the windows open. Additionally, to make your home smell nice, you can add a few drops of lavender oil to the water in the bottle.
