DIY: Beat the heat with frozen towel wraps!

Here’s DM using the Minneapolis towel method, or MTM.

If you live in America, or anywhere that is hot as FUCK right now, you are going to love my friend Sarah.

I was introduced to the most fascinating cooling method since wetting the back of my neck and sitting very still (I learned this in Chile). This new method takes that idea even further, delving into areas once unimaginable to the common man: a wet, frozen towel neck wrap.

Normally reserved for freezing the least popular kid’s underwear at sleepovers, this method has been resurrected in parts of Minneapolis as the new technique to beat the sweltering, hundred degree heat.

Frozen Towel Wrap


Genius. Pure genius.
  • Small hand towel, bandana or any fabric you can get wet and freeze without ruining
  • Water
  • Freezer

First get a small towel. Bandanas work too, but they don’t hold the cold as long as a small towel does. Get it wet, and then fold it into a U shape. Put it into the freezer and wait until it freezes. When it’s frozen, take it out and wrap it around your neck. I swear to God, you’re going to die from pleasure. It was absolutely the most comfortable, cheap and soothing ways to beat the heat, ever.

Interweb: Pinterest is cray

Pinterest is so crazy. It’s just a bunch of aesthetically pleasing pictures that you categorize into your own personal “pin board.” Just a bunch o’ ladies (and minimal dudes) organizing the internet. NBD. It seems like a huge waste of time, but it really doesn’t take long to pin some stuff. I think it’s two clicks. Bizarre, yet entertaining.
