    Question cool out

    Hello, I can not remember what "cool out" means.
    could you help me.
    Thanks...

    Context: After such an exhausting day's work, all I want to do is cool out with some quiet music.

    Context would have been helpful.

    It might mean 'It's not very warm outside'.

    Welcome to the board.

    Do you mean "chill out"?

    You could be right, bhaisahab.

    Like I said, we need context.

    Re: cool out

    Context would have been helpful. Let me explain the meaning of “cool”

    Mandy is cooling her feet in the stream. >>> Cool means to cause something to become slightly colder.

    The children felt hot, so they jumped into the water to cool off >>> cool off means LIKE if a feeling cools, it starts to become less strong.

    The porridge was hot, so the three bears left it to cool down >>> cool down means to become less hot, or to make someone or something become less hot.

    Nearly cool off and cool down have same meaning.
