Litre of Light – The No Electricity Light Bulb

I often search the internet for good ideas on money saving products. The other day I went to the Miss Thrifty web site and they had an article on a Litre of Light.

Basically a plastic bottle is filled with water and added to that a drop of bleach. The bleach prevents the green algae building up on the inside of the bottle.

The filled bottles are mounted in the roof of a building. The idea is that the when light hits the bottle of water the light refracts and it acts like a 50 watt light bulb.

Watch the video to see it in action:-

I am not sure how well it would work in the UK, but I am pretty sure that a dark shed, or something similar could benefit from such a device??

This sound like it could be a great money saver in the right place.

If you do use one, please let me know how it worked.

  1. “I am not sure how well it would work in the UK, but I am pretty sure that a dark shed, or something similar could benefit from such a device??”

    Is that a question and if so does it require two question marks? I’ll answer the question I just asked. It was a statement followed by two question marks. I suppose that reflects the unfortunate way people speak these days by making statments while using a question like inflection.

    “This sound like it could be a great money saver in the right place.” Surely one ought to say “This sounds” if attempting to follow the standard rules of grammar. The problem with being liberal and green is that people forget that being taken seriously involves being serious about communicating your ideas. I agree with the comment although I am dissapointed by the feeble use of the language to convey the sentiments contained therin.
