Top 10 Best Cooling Towels

It’s a hot, sticky world out there, but that doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable while out in it. There is a multitude of ways to keep cool, from finding spots of air conditioning to dropping ice down the front of your shirt. But what if there were a very simple means of keeping cool without having to go to inconvenience yourself and carry around a cooler full of ice cubes?

Cooling towels are a trend that everyone in hot, uncomfortable climates can get behind.
