1. Create a Sand-Free Zone

Let's face it — sand gets everywhere. But fear not, beachgoers! Simply pack a fitted sheet and some cooler bags. Lay the sheet flat on the sand, placing your bags on each corner to create a sand-free haven. Voilà! You've got an instant sand-free zone for your beach towels, snacks, and, most importantly, your sanity. And here's a bonus hack: Baby powder is your secret weapon against stubborn sand. A sprinkle on sandy feet magically makes it disappear.


2. Snack Attack: Freeze-Ahead Fruit Cubes

Say goodbye to soggy sandwiches and hello to refreshing frozen fruit cubes! Fill an ice tray with bite-sized fruit pieces, add water, and freeze. Pop these fruity ice cubes into a cooler, and not only will they keep your snacks cool, but they'll also double as a fruity refreshment as they melt. Speaking of snacks, head over to OK Foods for amazing deals on your beach day essentials.


3. Waterproof Your Gadgets

Worried about your gadgets getting a salty sea surprise? Ziplock bags to the rescue! Slip your phone or camera into any resealable plastic bag, seal it, and you've got yourself a makeshift waterproof case. You’ll still be able to use the touchscreen, but you won’t risk getting annoying scratches and water damage.

4. Soothe Sunburn with Aloe Vera Cubes

After a day of frolicking in the waves, your sun-kissed skin might need some extra TLC. Even if you remember to reapply sunscreen often, sun burns can still happen. Ease the pain with some homemade aloe vera ice cubes. All you have to do is squeeze aloe vera gel into an ice cube tray and allow to set the night before you head to the beach. The icy coolness will help soothe your sunburn a little extra!
