Keep cool this summer with these fantastic deals on floor fans and blinds

FEELING hot, hot, hot as summer comes early?

We can’t yet cool off in a beer garden, unfortunately, but being indoors needn’t get too muggy.

And you don’t have to splash out on expensive air-conditioning units or top-of-the-range fans. 

Ice work: This simple hack is one of my favourites. Home Bargains has a fantastic floor fan on offer for £29.99, down from £44.99. If you put a bowl of ice in front of it, you will end up with a fantastic, icy breeze to keep you cool. Lovely.


Tapas into this: Using the oven or hob will heat up your kitchen . . . and possibly the rest of your home.

Where possible, use your grill instead or switch to cold, tapas-style dinners. I love spreads of salad, bread and cured meats.

Aldi’s Antipasto Selection is a great snack and, at just £1.69, is far cheaper than options at Waitrose for £7.49.

SAVING: £5.80

Blindingly good: Heat coming in through the windows can turn your home into a total greenhouse. Avoid feeling like a potted plant by investing in blackout blinds, which will block sunlight and help to regulate room temperature. White blinds are best for keeping the heat out, as they help to deflect it. They start from just £8 at John Lewis.

Cool runnings: In hot weather, ditch steamy showers and piping-hot baths. They can overheat you and leave your bathroom full of steam, so you feel even more clammy.

Turning the temperature down a notch is an easy way to dehumidify your home — and save on your energy bill.
