The month of June may have only seen a few showers here and there but that doesn't mean the monsoon is far away. In fact, it may be closer than you think. Yes, the season of gloomy skies, mosquito bites and snuggle weather is upon us. Prepare for an influx of sipping chai on rainy mornings, rushing for clothes lines when it starts to rain and slapping your hands every time you feel a mosquito sitting there. But are you prepared for it? You best be because in a matter of weeks, it will be on your doorstep. Or more correctly, with droplets tapping on your window pane.
Home, Kitchen And Fashion Picks To Stock Up On During The Monsoons
Before the monsoon arrives in full fury, you need these rainy day necessities.
1. Make Clothes Drying A Breeze
Aren't you tired of having to make a break for the clothes lines outside every time it rains? Save yourself the trouble with foldable and portable clothes dryers. You can set them up at any part of the house and they can be neatly tucked inside on sunny days too.
2. Drive Away Mosquitoes
As if mosquitoes weren't enough of a menace throughout the year, the wave intensifies during the rains which makes malaria prevalent. This time around, don't let them draw first blood with repellent lotions, patches and even devices which you can set up for your living room.
3. Cosy Up Indoors
It's more important than ever to spend as much of your monsoon indoors as possible. Make your Binge-watching sessions or nights on the couch so much comfortable in chic night suits, pajama sets and cosy sweatshirts.
4. Ensure Your Water's Purity
Hygiene is of topmost importance during the rains and that's the case with the water you drink too. Diseases like cholera and E.coli are prevalent so ensure your family and your safety by installing a water purification filter in your house.
5. It's Chai Time
Aren't the rains the best time of the year to wistfully watch the landscape through a droplet covered window with a glass of tea in your hand? From the bags you use to the tea kettle you brew in, the right tools make tea time a blast.
