Freeze Your Water Bottle



Here in Las Vegas, temps max out at around 115 in the summer, but stay above 100 for most of June-September. To keep cool and hydrated during my summertime walks, I take a completely frozen bottle of water with me. It starts melting within about 5 minutes, so I have water available to drink when I need it. It continues to melt throughout my hour-long walk, giving me water continuously. And bonus, it cools down my hands and keeps the heat-induced swelling to a minimum!

    Great idea but you may want to transfer water to a non-plastic container before freezing. Exposing plastics to extreme cold or heat may release harmful chemicals in the plastic... Keep up the good work! - by FORESIGHTMOM
