Some of you may have seen my first Solar Cooler in a Can instructable, and it worked well, but it was designed for chunks of meat and cheese. This version is designed to accept three 20oz bottles of soda or three 12oz cans. If you haven't heard about evaporative coolers, they use warm water and evaporation to cool a medium in a way similar to the human perspiration system. Apparently they were used in ancient times to cool water and other things.
I have no affiliation with Mountain Dew or its affiliates or Pepsi Co. or its affiliates.

1 mesh gutter cover
1 can of Krylon Fusion Plastic spray paint (white)
27 small plastic zip ties

1" hole saw drill bit
