Intro: Ghetto Swamp Cooler\ Laundry Dryer

A cheap and effective way to cool any room, and dry your wet clothes.


Materials:
*Flat Surface
*Fan
*Something Open to Stretch Cloth Over
*Wet Cloth

Step 1: The Clothes

First, you need to wash your clothes (shirt, sheet, pants, etc...). You can either run it through a washing machine, or just run it under the sink.

Step 2: Setting Up

Once you have your wet laundry, you can stretch it over some open area (I used a bass drum support).
Then set it up directly in front of a fan, which is supported on a flat surface.

Step 3: Enjoy

Sit back, relax, and enjoy your nice cool room. With a dry shirt after words.

    Which is not an issue in places that cool with only swamp coolers because there is little humidity.

    Absolute genius! No really I mean it. Less is best and this is as simple as it gets.

    "With a dry shirt after words."  I was wondering what words you use?

    Sorry, the dog made me do it.

    Ah, band room ingenuity. This is my senior year and we have all sorts of special set ups. Like during competitions we have someone with a hollow deck of cards for Tylenol and Aspirin. Some older cases have been hollowed enough to hold extra clothes and such.

    Well, the room that I put that in was approximately 630 cubic feet. The AC in the building was not running at the time, but when I turned the fan on, the room felt about 5 degrees cooler in a few minutes with the door slightly ajar. It felt about 10 degrees cooler with the door closed. I did not take any measurements with a thermometer so I don't know what the exact temperature change was.
