Summer temperatures seem to be climbing higher and higher every year, and in many parts of the US and abroad, temperatures can reach sweltering numbers well over 100 degrees fahrenheit.
If you’ve ever had your AC go out during the hot summer months, you know all too well how uncomfortable and downright miserable it can become very quickly, as the temperature in the house climbs minute by minute.
Today you are going to learn how to make a super simple, sweat saving DIY Air Conditioner with little more than a 5 gallon bucket. This homemade AC can even be solar powered by the sun without electricity at all, which would be a lifesaver during power outages.
