Do you have an outdoor shower?
We have up to 95 degrees today, feels like 101 dgrs. So my 10 year old grandson loves to run under the garden sprinklers, actually does not change the settings. I stay inside under AC.
I often think about how nice it would be to stand under a cool garden shower after mowing the lawn and working in the garden. No privacy screen would be necessary with shorts still on as a man, no shoes and no shirt simply get clean and cold skin and hair.
See the attachment, especially the DIY shower. People can make it as complicated and elaborate as they wish, but a simple pressure treated vertical 2x4 in the ground with a watering wand clamped to it, connected via a short garden hose to a water outlet, next to a patio would do it. That could also be easily disassembled over winter. Do you have anything like that?
