Entire Car Covered in Cow Dung to Keep It Cool

They say necessity is the mother of innovation and a woman in India has proven this right!

In trying to cope with the rising temperatures of Ahmedabad, an Indian woman named Sejal Shah covered her entire car with cow dung. She claimed it kept the car cool without the use of air conditioning and was friendly to the environment. After a photo of her car went viral on Facebook, the woman was approached by a local news channel to explain her unusual method. She further claimed that the method of using cow dung as means of cooling places, was widely used in many villages in India, where people would spread the dung on their floors and walls, then leaving it there to dry, thus keeping the indoor temperature low.
