How To Make a Temporary A/C Unit For Your Desk
**Please note that this is only a temporary solution and that investing in an A/C Tune-Up or Replacement is the only way to get the real Air Conditioning effect!**
- An Old Fan (Table Or Full Sized)
- 2 Plastic Bottles (If using an old soda bottle be sure to rinse it out thoroughly beforehand!)
- Ice Cubes
Get Your Cool On!
Step 1: Using a knife or a pair of scissors, cut the bottom off both bottles (this will essentially become lid for the ice)
Step 2: Poke about 6 small holes in a vertical line and continue to do that around the bottle
Step 3: Attach the bottle behind the fan using the string or wire (be sure to unplug the fan before doing this)
Step 4: Place handful of ice cubes inside the bottle (do not fill above the level where the holes were made
Step 5: Plug back in the fan and turn it on
Step 6: Double check that there is no water leaking
Step 7: Enjoy The Cool Air
**It might be useful to keep the dry ingredients in an airtight container like a mason jar ready to use whenever you have another clog!**
