"Japanese air conditioning": what is the essence of the method that will save you even from the heat of hell
The idea of putting on an extra piece of clothing in the heat seems crazy. But not for the Japanese, who invented such a way of cooling, as an anti-scarf or "Japanese air conditioner".
As OBOZREVATEL found out, it requires a light scarf or shawl. And some water.
The essence of such an air conditioner is that a damp object on the body helps to cool it better. As water escapes from the fabric, it removes excess heat from the skin.
To make an anti-scarf, take a piece of fabric-a scarf, a shawl, or just a cut. Ideally it should be natural, because synthetics dry faster. Wet the fabric and tie it around your neck like a scarf, or around your head like a bandana - whichever suits your image best. As the fabric dries, you won't feel the heat. You won't be in danger of overheating either, because the evaporation of water will help draw heat away from your body - its energy will go to turning water into steam. This is exactly how human sweat works. And when the fabric starts to get dry, wet it again and again as long as necessary.
An ordinary towel or a wet cloth, including a paper towel, can also work as an anti-scarf. The main thing is to have something well moistened on your body.
By the way, it is not necessary to wet the cloth exactly with cold water. It can be unpleasant, and the water will still quickly warm up to body temperature. Therefore, you can use a liquid of room temperature or lukewarm. This way, wetting the scarf will be less stressful for you.
If circumstances allow you to wear wet clothes, you can turn an entire T-shirt or blouse into such an "anti-scarf". It will be less noticeable on things made of natural dark-colored fabrics.
