Cold Weather Hacks
Glasgow has been given a wintery dusting of snow, and we are feeling chilly! These hacks will make getting through this cold weather a little easier.
Put newspaper in wet shoes to dry them out
Also put them near to a radiator to help them dry out quicker!
Put a shower cap on your bike seat
There's nothing worse than a soggy bike seat.
Tie zip ties around your bike tyres to make snow tyres
You can get more traction in the snow by tying zip ties around your tyres at equal distances.
Wear lots of thin layers, rather than one thick one
Shops like Primark sell thin tops for as little as 50p. While you're there why not pick up some other cheap cosy clothing? They sell thick socks, hats, gloves, scarves, pyjamas, and the ultimate cold weather clothing item - onesies!
Wear sandwich bags to keep your feet dry
Okay I know it sounds strange, but trust me on this one... Nobody likes sitting in lectures with wet feet. If your boots aren't waterproof, try wearing sandwich bags on top of your socks. They'll keep your feet dry and warm, and nobody will see them tucked inside your boots.
Get a hot water bottle
Use hot water bottles to keep you warm. You can use one to heat up your pyjamas before you put them on, or use one to heat up your bed before you get in it. You can also sit with one while you study on those extra cold evenings.
