As temperatures rise, people are trying various things to beat the heat. But one resident in Ahmedabad reportedly came up with a novel method to keep his car cool in the summer: he allegedly coated it completely with cow dung. Photos of the ‘cooling hack’ were shared on Facebook and they quickly went viral.
Facebook user Rupesh Gauranga Das, who shared the images, wrote, “Best use of cow dung I have ever seen.” He said they photos were taken in Ahmedabad, and added, “To counter 45 degrees heat temperatures and protect car from getting hot Mrs. Sejal shah has plastered her car with cow dung. Getting cool 😎”
The two photos showed that the sedan had allegedly been completely coated with cow dung.
The two pictures of the dung-covered car have left many laughing, and others praising the car owner's ingenuity.
Applying cow dung to the walls and floors of houses is a common practice in India. It is believed that the dung helps the structures remain cool in summers and warm in winters.
