12 smart solutions on the beach to be fully prepared for this summer
When we talk about summer, we often think of hot sand, cool sea water and a good tan. But unpleasant things can happen even on the beach, and can really ruin your vacation.
We present you 12 tricks to make your beach vacation enjoyable, safe and fun.
12. How to prevent sand from sticking to your feet
Because of all the sand that sticks to your feet, it can be difficult to put your shoes back on after a day at the beach. To avoid this, use baby powder.What to do: Pour a little powder on a piece of cloth and wrap it tightly. When you are ready to go home, rub the powder on your feet. The powder will absorb all the moisture, which means that even tiny grains of sand will fall easily. Your feet will be clean and soft.
11. How to avoid losing your car keys
To avoid getting your keys on the beach and running the risk of disappearing into the sea, hide them behind the wheel of your car.What to do: Take a branch, a blade of grass or a plant stem and tie it to the keychain that holds your car keys. Place it on the rim and let it hang on the inside.
10. Protection of your valuables
When you are on the beach, there is often no place to put your valuables and it is not a good idea to leave them exposed without watching them.What to do: Just put the keys, the phone, the money and whatever else you have in a baby diaper or wrap it in some underwear. These items are not at all attractive to thieves. They will not touch them, and your things will be safe.
9. How to avoid a headache
The sudden change in pressure that occurs when you dive into the water can cause you a headache. Fortunately, there is a way to avoid it.What to do: Before going under the water, hold your nose, close your mouth and apply some pressure to your head for 5-10 seconds. Then take a deep breath and repeat this process 2 more times. Your body will adjust to the new pressure and you will not end up with a headache.
8. Keep your phone dry
What to do: To protect your phone from moisture and sand, place it in a zippered bag. Then, with the help of a straw, remove all the air from it. As a result you will have a completely waterproof cover.
7. If your ears are clogged
If you have removed all the water from your ears, but they are still clogged after a while on the beach, you need to restore the natural pressure inside your ear. It's easy.What to do: Take an ordinary balloon, close your nose and start inflating it. At some point during this process, you will hear a faint "clicking" sound, which indicates that the pressure in your ears has returned to normal.
6. A refreshing drink
What to do: Before going to the beach, fill a plastic bottle with 1/3 of water and place it in the freezer. When you need a cool drink after a long time in the sun, you can pour any drink into the bottle and it will cool down immediately.
5. Sunbed without sand
What to do: To prevent the wind from bringing sand to your shoes, clothes and bags, apply a mattress cover instead of an ordinary beach chair. You will end up with something near an inflatable pool without water, in which you can lie down and keep your things safe.
4. Keep your slippers cool
What to do: To stop the burning of your feet from your sandals after sitting in the sun for hours, just keep them upside down when you are not wearing them.
3. Prevent sand from sticking to your things
What to do: Put bottles in paper cups so that the sand does not stick to them.
2. Protect your phone from water and sand
What to do: This is another great way to protect your phone from water and sand: wrap it in plastic wrap. This even allows you to take it with you to the sea, although the touch may not work at lower temperatures.
