    Default Cool drinks cans

    Thought I would share this little ditty.

    Often when out and about I take a can of cola or orange.

    To keep them cool for longer ..
    The night before roll them in 2 or 3 sheets of newspaper and turn the ends over.
    Hold it all together with a couple of elastic bands.
    Put in the fridge over night.
    Just before you depart remove from fridge and put in rucksack or what ever.
    Keeps cool for as long time.

    If you donít plan to drink directly from the bottle, then submerged in a bucket of water somewhere shady- like we used to do with milk at Guide camp (a long time ago!)
