Keep cool during the muggy weather with our cash-saving tips and hacks

FEELING mugged off by the humid weather?

The stormy skies are not ideal for this time of year but there is no need to get all in a sweat.

Here is how to keep cool . . . 

ICE IDEA: This is one of my all-time favourite hacks. Invest in a cheap fan — Wilko currently has a 16in Beldray High Velocity Floor Fan for £35, cheaper than those at Robert Dyas for £44.99 — then place a bowl of ice in front of it to create a cool breeze.

SAVING: £15

COOL RUNNINGS: Ditch hot showers and baths, as you will feel even more clammy when you are outside. Turning the temperature down a notch is an easy way to dehumidify, keep yourself cool — and save on your energy bill.

HEAVEN SCENT: Stay nice and fresh with half-price across L’Oreal men’s products at Boots, making the L’Oreal Men Expert Cool Power 48H Anti-Perspirant Deodorant, 250ml, just £1.75, down from £3.50. At Superdrug, the Sure range is on offer too. Get the Sure Deodorant Aerosol Shower Fresh 150ml for £1, instead of £2.65.

SAVE: Up to £1.75

GRILL POWER: Using the oven or hob will heat up your kitchen, and maybe the rest of your home too because hot air rises. Where possible, use just your grill, or a barbecue — or treat yourselves to some tapas-style picnic dinners. You can get three picnic or cold sharing-food items for £5 at Iceland, saving you at least a quid.

GOT IT COVERED: If you are having people over in your garden, the storms may mean that it is time to invest in a gazebo. Aldi has a Gardenline one for £99.99 and Wayfair Claudie gazebo for £75.99 — but B&Q (diy.com) has the Suhali white gazebo online for just £31.

SAVE: Up to £68.99

SLEEP EASIER: Restless nights a problem? Get some cooling bedding. Next.co.uk has Tencel Cool Touch bedsheets from £18. Very.co.uk has the King-sized Everyday Collection Cool Touch Tencel Plain Dye Duvet Set, at £30 down from £41.

SAVE: £9
