Summer is here and so is the hot weather. Even though this is what we’ve been waiting for all winter, sometimes we need a break from the heat.
Teresa Buchanan, garden center manager at Lockwood’s Greenhouses, 4484 Clark St., Hamburg, recommends the Neckbandoo.
It’s made by Blubandoo and contains non-toxic polymer crystals that quickly expand to a gel when immersed in water.
According to the company, Blubandoo products quickly dry to the touch, but stay hydrated, keeping the wearer cool (due to the slow gel evaporation) for several hours, even days. When they dry completely, they return to their original shape.
They are reusable again and again. Simply re-soak them in water for just five minutes.
Buchanan uses them and says they really keep you cool.
Neckbandoos also come in a variety of colors and patterns, so you can be fashionable, too.
They’re great whether you’re strolling through the midday heat of a garden walk or working in your own garden.
You can buy them for $9.99 each at Lockwood’s.
