When we talk about summer, we often think of hot sand, the cold water of the sea, and a good tan. But unpleasant things can occur even on a trip to the beach, and they can really spoil your holiday.
How to stop sand sticking to your feet
Because of all the sand that gets stuck to your feet, it can be difficult to get your shoes back on after a day at the beach. To avoid this happening, use children’s talcum powder.
What to do: Sprinkle some talcum powder onto a piece of cloth, and wrap it up tightly. When you’re ready to go home, rub the talcum powder onto your feet. The talc will absorb all the moisture, meaning that even the tiniest grains of sand will fall away easily. Your legs and feet will be clean and smooth.
How to avoid losing your car keys
To avoid having to take your keys to the beach and running the risk of them disappearing into the sea, hide them behind the wheel of your car.
What to do: Take a twig, blade of grass, or plant stem and tie it to the keyring for your car keys. Fix it to the hubcap, and let it hang down on the inner side.
Protecting your valuables
When you’re on the beach, there’s often nowhere to put your valuables, and it’s not a good idea to leave them without anyone to watch over them.
What to do: Simply place your keys, telephone, money, and so on inside a child’s diaper, or wrap them up inside some underwear. Such items are wholly unattractive to thieves. They won’t even touch them, and your stuff will be safe.
Keeping your phone dry
What to do: To protect your phone from moisture and sand, place it in a ziplock bag. Then, with the help of a straw, remove all the air from it. You’ll end up with a completely waterproof cover.
What to do: To stop your sandals from burning your feet after they’ve sat in the sun for hours, just keep them turned over when you’re not wearing them.
