Best Products to Have on Hand in the Summer

During the hot summer months, there are a few things to keep handy in case you need it. Whether you want to care for your hair, keep your lawn healthy, or even manage the cleanliness of your home, there are a few different items you want to keep. Summer is hotter and harsher on both you and your home, which is why we recommend keeping these products readily available!

Insect Repellant

Most people forget how irritable bugs can be until summer rolls around. Hotter, humid areas like the south always have issues with mosquitos and other pesky bugs. Ensuring you have insect repellant spray for you or your lawn can be helpful so you can enjoy the summer evenings. Additionally, they make candles that also repel mosquitos and other insects. This allows you to enjoy evenings outside without the worry of being bitten.


This one should be a no-brainer for people. Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun's rays and keeps your skin healthy. Having a sunscreen spray on hand when you're outdoors will keep you from burning and damaging your skin. If you go to the pool or beach, you'll also want this. Don't forget to reapply every 2 hours!

Lawn Mower & Sprinkler

Whether you have your lawn mowed by a company or do it yourself, you will need a sprinkler. During the summer, your grass tends to dry out more due to the heat. If you mow your own lawn, it's great to keep a push mower on hand. If you are regularly upkeeping your lawn by mowing and watering it, it will remain looking 'lush' throughout the hot months.


One thing people often forget - vacuums or brooms! This is helpful when you've just visited the beach and drug sand throughout your car and house. Sand is hard to get rid of, even when you've showered after leaving the beach. It stays in your car and then is drug into your house as well. Keeping a hand vacuum on hand helps to eliminate the sand particles from your car. You can also sweep it from your floors if you have hardwood.


We've said it throughout the year - moisturize your skin! In summer, you'll want a lighter moisturizer that helps to keep your skin soft. This keeps the sun from drying out your skin. Additionally, it's smart to keep a body lotion on hand as well. Reapplying this regularly keeps your skin soft and if it contains sunscreen, that's even better!
