WITH a heatwave sweeping across Britain, children across the country will be eager to splash around in their paddling pools.
But there’s no denying that pumping up the inflatable is quite a tedious task for any parent – especially in the heat!
Well, not anymore — thanks to an ingenious solution shared by a savvy mom named Caprice.
According to Caprice, who goes by the acronym @capricesmum, the trick is to use a hair dryer in a cool setting.
And that not only means you don’t have to search for a pump or aimlessly try to find one that you know you’ve kept in a safe place, but best of all?
Caprice claims her method takes just 90 seconds to fully inflate her three-year-old’s paddling pool.
In the clip, she can be seen using her hair dryer to blow up her son’s paddling pool with cool air, noting she’s been using the same technique “for years” because it’s a “complete turnaround.”
She explains: “On hot days my son is so impatient to get in the pool and that allows me to do it so quickly.”

“This paddling pool took 90 seconds to inflate.”
However, your top tip comes with a warning.
“Please make sure there is no water inside as that can be dangerous,” she says.
The video has racked up an impressive 4 million views and has been inundated with grateful parents who were happy for the time, effort… and lots of breath saved!
“No way — omg thanks for that tip,” gushed one.
A second quipped: “As an asthma sufferer who nearly dies every year blowing up the pool, I could have used this tip 10 years ago. But thanks!”
A third added: “Why didn’t I ever think of that – thanks.”
Another joked, “Wish I’d seen that before I blew up the pool with my mouth.”
