Folding Hand Fans Create A Cooling Breeze
You know the feeling – you’re sitting there minding your own business when you feel a heat starting to build up from inside. This isn’t the good kind of sexy heat – oh no, mon ami. This is a hot flash about to make you burst into flames.
When I was first entering menopause and unfamiliar with all the products to help in the fight against hot flashes, I used to grab anything within reach with which to fan myself. Nothing was off limits, including, one time, a credit card – well, it was all I had with me! It was on that day that I decided to find a better option than a credit card (doesn’t work well) or a magazine or newspaper to create a cooling breeze. That’s when I discovered the joy and beauty of folding hand fans.
Folding hand fans used to be a favorite in Victorian times and, boy, now I understand why. How those women walked around clad in those long, heavy dresses, especially when menopause was in store, is greek to me. But, those women always seemed to be pictured with a folding hand fan within easy reach. Now I get it.
Folding hand fans today are not those of your grandmother’s era. Most hand fans on the market today are more rigid so they create a stronger breeze. The best hand fans for me are made of plastic as they last longer. Some folding hand fans even come with pretty lace so they’re not quite as obnoxious as those old white hand fans that used to be popular. And, with a quick snap of the wrist, these hand fans open to their full sized glory.
