Hi all! I found something called MISTY MATES and was wondering if anyone has used them! On their website, these sell for 2 for $30. The SAME EXACT ONES sell on QVC for 2 for $19.99…and QVC even throws in 4 cooling bandanas!!! (not like I would be caught dead wearing a bandana around my head, but I could wrap it around my arm or neck or ankle or something…LOL :laugh: )
My husband has a small one that is supposed to last for arund 2 hours. He used it at work yesterday, but he hasn’t said anything about it. I also saw it on the counter this morning where he left it when he went to work this morning. I don’t know if that means it doesn’t work well or if he just forgot it. :blink: I will be sure to ask him what he thinks of it tonight when I get home from work. My mom got it at Walmart for (she thinks) no more than $20. We live in Panama City, Florida, and he works in the heat outside all day. It has be 90+ degrees outside lately!:glare: I will post what he says about it tonight after I talk to him.
My company sends them along with mechanics working overseas. Thay claim they work well but only in non-humid climates. They work by using evaporation to cool your head and neck. In humid climates the evaporation is less effective. I bought some last month and plan to test them in Orlando. I’ll let you know if they work.
It’s not just a spray bottle. Here is the description from Misty Mate website:
This 2.5 oz bottle pressurizes easily with a few quick pumps and with a push of a button an ULTRA FINE MIST emits to create an instant COOLING sensation that has to be FELT to be BELIEVED!
And the bandanas are the ones you soak in water that keep you cool…not your ordinary bandana!
I was JUST trying to think of something to stay cool in the parks and stumbled upon these. You get 6 things for $19. I think I paid that much for my Mickey spray fan alone…:eek: (God knows where it is now…:ohmy: )
Yes, I think that is how they work! I mean, I wouldn’t wear that bandana all day long, but just to keep cool for a few minutes on my pressure points would be GREAT! I might just order this set. I’ll give myself a day or two to decide.
They’re good in the hot weather. I can see why they would work better in a dry environment, but they worked good in WDW. I know places like Dollar General and Family Dollar used to carry these, but I haven’t looked this year.
Just run them under cold water anytime you go to the restroom…or when you go by the bins of ice that CMs sell pop out of, ask to dip it in there for a minute, we were never told no!
