I hope this is appropriate for the community, if not then please delete it. I found this in my local newspaper, and I thought it was pretty insteresting. Don't have the luxury of AC? Try some unconventional home-made cooling methods: fill a large bowl with ice cubes( or a block of ice) and place in front of a fan- you'll be amazed by the added cooling effect. Another inventive tip is to put your bedsheets in the freezer; then right before going to sleep, put them on the bed and jump in- by the time they warm back up you'll be asleep.. and there's always the tried-and-true method of taking a refreshing cold shower before bed. It's a great quick way to cool down body temp.
