      At lunch

    Explanation
    Drinking water throughout the day is the best way to prevent dehydration. Our body constantly loses water through sweat, urine, and even breathing, so it is important to replenish it regularly.

This ensures that our body functions properly and helps prevent symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, and dry mouth.

    How does one activate a Cooling Towel (CT product)?

    • A.

      Soak 2-3 hours

    • B.

      Run under water 2-3 minutes

    • C.

      Run under water 1 minute

    • D.

      Put in the freezer 2-3 hours

    Correct Answer
    C. Run under water 1 minute
    Explanation
    To activate a Cooling Towel (CT product), one needs to run it under water for 1 minute. This process allows the towel to absorb water and activate its cooling properties. By wetting the towel, it becomes moist and can provide a cooling effect when applied to the body. Soaking it for 2-3 hours or running it under water for 2-3 minutes may not be necessary and could potentially make the towel too wet or saturated. Putting it in the freezer for 2-3 hours would likely make the towel too cold and rigid, making it less effective for its intended purpose.
