How to deal with the heat in summer

I hope I don't get into trouble naming brands but there just doesn't seem to be any other thing on the market for this type of ice that you cut into strips so you can freeze them. It's called techni-ice, sometimes you can get ice sheets in the camping section of stores, but they have real water in them and they don't seem to have good ways to cut them because the water spills out. The techni-ice is made of some polymer or something and it doesn't leak when it thaws.

You buy it in sheets and then put them in water until they puff up. Then carefully cut between the rows and cut it into strips. Then get some handkerchiefs and roll the strips into them and freeze them. You can wrap them around your neck or head. Sometimes when I feel generally lowsy when I wake up even in the wintertime I put an ice wrap around my head and I feel better that day.

If you're getting a migraine wrap the ice wrap around your head and you might feel better. Not if you have a really bad one but on a "yucky" kind of day when you are ok to function.

They even have some dry ice ones but I'm not sure if that works the same. They sell the ice sheets at fairs but you can go to their website which I'm not going to put up.
