All hacks are great, but Summer hacks have got to be the best hacks of all.

When the hot weather arrives, all you want to do is enjoy it, but things like bug bites, sand in shoes and warm wine can take the edge off of things somewhat.

Well not with Expert Home Tips around. We’ve compiled the ultimate list of Summer hacks to make your Summer as seamless as the holiday commercials.

Grab a bevvy, pop your sun hat on, and let’s get started.

1. The Summer Hack every boozy party needs

No one likes a warm drink, especially when it’s hot outside. Part fill balloons with water, freeze, and pop them in a large, rubber tub to make a huge ice bucket for all your bottles and cans – amazing!

2. Keep ice cream soft with this Summer hack

Don’t break your arm in your quest to get a scoop of ice cream. Place the tub in a freezable bag before freezing, and it will be perfectly soft each time.

3. How to keep valuables perfectly hidden & safe on the beach

Don’t waste time worrying about valuables when you could be having fun. Hide money and other items in an empty sun cream case to keep them safe whilst you enjoy yourself.

4. Another great use for that muffin tray

Who’d have thought muffin trays were such a Summer essential?

All those compartments are just perfect for storing condiments. Load each one up and pop it by the BBQ.

5. Remove sand with this clever hack

Sand’s great…whilst you’re on the beach. Make sure you don’t take it home with you by removing any excess from your body with talcum powder.

6. Make coffee ice cubes for the perfect Summer treat

Want the ultimate iced coffee? Then you need to freeze coffee cubes. Unlike ice ones, they won’t water down your drink, and you’ll get the caffeine kick you crave.

Don’t spend your Summer swatting at mosquitos! Pour your mint mouthwash into a spray bottle to spritz over your body to keep them from bothering you.
