WITH a heatwave sweeping across the UK, children up and down the country will be eager to splash around in their paddling pools.

But there's no denying that for any parent, pumping up the inflatable up is quite the arduous task – especially in the heat!

Well, not any more – thanks to a genius solution shared by a savvy mum named Caprice.

According to Caprice, who goes by the acronym @capricesmum, the trick is to use a hairdryer on a cool setting.

Caprice claims her method takes just 90 seconds to fully inflate her three-year-old's paddling pool.
