  • get a hand towel or a dish towel and wet it with cold water and drape it around the back of your neck. That always helps me.

  • Yes wet your hair and keep your feet in cold water. Drink lots of water. Keep the lights off. Use your microwave instead of your stove. Keep your drapes closed. Open the windows at night and close them during the day.Definately get a fan asap! Put an wanted ad on Craigslist if you don't have the money. There is always someone who upgraded to a/c that will barter with you.

  • Buy a fan. If you have a laptop or a computer to get on the internet you must have outlets. Buy fans.
