Stop! It’s Koozie Time

by Emily Grace

I’ve been in utter shock! It is surprising to me the number of people that have no clue what a koozie is. My roommate and I have made it our mission to bring the wonder of koozies to the world (or maybe this is just my mission and I am secretly pushing her to join the forces). Anyway, for you out there who are uneducated in the field of koozies, I have comprised a Top Ten List of koozie facts and rules for usage. Please feel free to add your own uses, tips, facts, and best koozies you’ve seen.

1. Use your koozie to keep beverages cold and your hands warm (or just not cold). This is the primary purpose of a koozie. You can use them on cans or bottles. Your beverages will stay cold for a long time, even if it is hot where you are.

2. Use your koozies to keep condensation off cans and bottles. When cans and bottles are cold, water condenses on the outside. This leaves the containers wet and slick. You can prevent this with the use of a koozie. Your hands will stay dry and you will not have to be bothered by water dripping onto your clothes, or the worst case scenario, a party fowl due to a slippery bottle sliding out of your hands.

3. Start with a cold drink. You can store your drinks in a refrigerator or in a cooler with ice. Your drinks need to be pre-chilled in order for the koozie to work. Then, dry off the drink container if it has been in ice.

4. Put the koozie on your drink container carefully. They are pretty durable, but you should not tug on them too hard. If you do, you could tear them. Pull it onto your drink.

5. Position the koozie on the container. If the koozie has a bottom, make sure the bottom of the can is on the bottom of the koozie. Also, make sure the opening of the bottle or can is clear so you will be able to drink from it.

6. Carry your koozie with you around your apartment, your favorite bar, a picnic or party area. Take the koozie with you, ALWAYS! You will find that you will finish off what is in the containers more often than without koozies. This is because they keep it at a good drinking temperature.

7. Use personalized koozies! If you have personalized koozies made up for yourself, you can use them to show which drink is yours. You can also use koozies with different team or school logos to show your pride and also so they don’t get mixed up with drinks from rival teams or schools.

8. Be proud of your koozie. They are a great conversation starter! Also, if you use your koozie with utmost pride, that confidence is notable by koozie lovers of the opposite sex. Trust me, this move works, big time!

9. Take koozies with you to events. You might go to places where drinks will be served out of bottles or cans. It is nice if you can pull out your koozie and use it right on the spot.

10. Make sure you do not throw your koozie away with the container. If you are not paying attention, you might not notice that your koozie is still on your drink container. If you are not careful, you can throw away a lot of them before you get the idea. I have made numerous koozies for friends that are completely unaware as their drink is being tossed. This can become an expensive habit.

Koozies are fun and easy to use. When the hot summer sun is beating down and your drink is still cold, you will be glad you gave this wonderful invention a try.

Are you in need of the chic-ist of drinking accessories? If you are at a redneck rest stop you’re sure to find one with a witty saying, but if you’re looking for something a little more classy, I can make that happen.

Have a koozie for every occasion! Game-day koozies, picnic in the park, Party in the USA, Girls Nights, cruises… the possibilities are endless. With monograms and witty saying to ribboned accessorizing and hand-painted logos, there is a koozie out there for everyone!
