Anyone who has ever worn sandals or flip-flops to laze around in the sun knows how hot they get once the sun heats them up when they're taken off. So it's a really unpleasant surprise when it suddenly comes in contact with the soles of your feet. What can you do if you don't have an umbrella, beach chair or table to shade them under?
Redditor shawbin shares this simple solution which involves turning them upside down. That way, the side that makes contact with your feet wouldn't have absorbed the sun's excessive warmth. But if you happen to be somewhere sandy like at the beach, shawbin suggests a slight modification of this tip:
A better way to do this is rest one face up and the other face down on top of the first. This way neither of them are exposed to the hot sun or the hot ground/sand.
Of course, you can always just dip your flip flops in the pool or any clean body of water to cool them off a bit faster, but not before scalding your feet on a hot surface on your way to the pool! But it's still a neat tip to keep in mind to avoid burning your feet during the summer time.
