Amazing lifehack: Turn a soda bottle into a solar light via H2O + bleach

9 Oct

This is an amazing way to harness light from the sun, especially in poor and developing communities. Props to this man for being innovative.

1) Get a soda bottle

2) Fill it up with filtered H2O and a little bleach (to kill bacteria/fungi)

3) Cut a hole in the top of your tin roof (house, garden shed, or any place with no light)

4) Seal it in and use the sun’s light to artificially produce a lamp. No electricity or money needed.

Brilliant.
