Tuesday Life Hack: Get ready for winter with these simple hacks

There’s a certain bite in the air as we bid farewell to warm weather and sunny skies. A cold front has hit parts of the Highveld and winter is definitely coming. The South African Weather Services has warned that we can expect more-than-average rainfall during the autumn months. So not only are certain parts of the country experiencing a drop in temperature, but there will be a little rain sprinkled in the air. Here are some life hacks that might just help you find comfort and warmth:

1. If you want to get comfy before going to bed

Nothing beats a warm bed during colder conditions but if you do not have an electric blanket, how on earth can you achieve that? Well a cheap and effective way to get your bed warm is to use a hair dryer on heat mode and fan your sheets before getting into bed.

2. When you want to prevent a foggy windscreen?

Put a blanket on your windscreen and it will prevent your windows from getting icy and foggy on winter mornings.

3. How about make-shift thermal underwear?

Thermal underwear can be quite expensive so why not opt for a cheaper version by getting cotton leggings or stockings to wear under your pants or jeans when it’s cold.

4. If you want your wet shoes or boots to dry quicker

If your shoes or boots get wet from walking in the rain, stuff newspaper in them when you take them off to absorb the water more quickly. Place your shoes in front of a heater or fireplace for them to dry even quicker.

5. When you want a little heat in the kitchen

Open your oven slightly after cooking or baking and let the heat escape to the rest of the kitchen and maybe it’ll even reach another area of the house.
