Pool season is here – pack a bag, rub on the sunscreen and enjoy a really lazy time by the pool. We’ve made a list of your best poolside companions:
Bag:Make sure your bag is big enough to hold everything you need so you don’t have to keep running off to fetch things. Pool time is YOUR time.
Water bottle:Top up with water when the weather is hot. It’s smart to pop an almost full bottle of water in the freezer the evening before so you can enjoy ice-cold, refreshing water the next day. NB! Water expands when it freezes, so don’t fill the bottle to the top!
Thermal travel mug:You’ll fancy a cup of coffee or tea at some point during the day. If the weather is sweltering, make an iced latte or ice tea... mmm!!
Towel:Woven cotton towels take up less space in your bag and dry faster after you’ve had a swim. If the sun gets too hot, use a towel to screen your shoulders or wrapped around you as a turban or sarong. A really good companion to have by the pool!
