It’s hot and you want immediate cooling.
This tutorial shows you how to cool your Buff® before putting it on.
1: Make your Buff® fully wet and squeeze all excess moisture out.
I recommend to start by dipping your Buff® into water so it’s fully soaked. Later on you will find that less is more but fully wet is a good way to start.
Best is to take your strongest hand & scrunch the Buff® up like a ball. Then squeeze a few times until no water comes out.
2: Pull your Buff® apart
Being wet the fabric is clinging together. I just grab one side of the Buff® with both hands and pull them apart.
3: Shake your Buff®
The idea is to get air to go through the fabric
See how I have my hands inside the tube. This way the insides can’t stick together. Every part of the fabric now gets the airflow.
You will find that starting with a fully wet Buff® takes about 15 seconds of shaking to get the cooling process going. You should then have a nice cooling sensation when putting the Buff® on.
Troubleshooting: In case it didn’t work for you here are some ways of troubleshooting the issue.
Troubleshooting 1: Test the wetness & the cooling effect
Test the wetness & the cooling effect. Too wet & it will just feel wet.
I like to hold the inside of the fabric to my cheek.
Does it give me a cooling sensation?
If No – Does it feel dry? Then make it wet & start all over again. This time leaving your Buff® a bit more wet.
If No & it feels wet. Then squeeze & shake a bit more.
Troubleshooting 2: Test the breathability
Hard to breath? Then you won’t get the right airflow. The cooling effect needs easy breathing (good airflow).
Is it hard to breath through? You’re either not shaking the fabric the right way or it was very wet to start with. Then continue to the next step.
Troubleshooting 3: Continue shaking until your happy
