Top Beach/Pool Hacks
Any beach go-er knows that sometimes, wind at the beach can be your worst enemy! If you find that your hat is sometimes flying off due to strong beach winds, try this hack. Simply take your beach hat and sew in two small loops of fabric on either side, close by to your ears. Next, take a bobby pin and add on both loops. Next time you decide to wear your hat to the beach, simply fasten the bobby pins into your hair, keeping the hat securely in place!
In the hot summer weather, a cool drink is a must! Next time you’re going swimming in the pool, try this quick and easy DIY drink floatie hack. Cut a standard pool noodle into 4’s, taking two pieces and hot gluing them side-by-side. Next, take a can or standard cup and trace the outline of your drink onto the top of the pool noodles. Cut along the traced circle, going only about halfway into the noodle. Next, place the noodle with the drink into the pool and you’ll have a cold drink floating by your side!
If you find a hole in your plastic pool float, try this repair hack before throwing it away! Take a piece of parchment paper and a clothing iron, placing the paper over the hole in the float. Using the iron, apply the heat and pressure onto the ripped part of the float. The heat should fuse the float back together, fixing the hole and stopping the air from leaking out!
