Solar innovations are a hot topic on DIY Life. We love learning about new ways to combine solar power with our DIY passion. The solar food dehydrator is a great product of this combination.
You can make this out of cardboard boxes or wood depending on your handy skills, and how long you want it to last. You'll also need a piece of a garbage bag and some clear plastic. If you want added performance and a longer life, add some Styrofoam insulation. The solar dehydrator plans detail the assembly and offer tips for getting the best results.
The dehydrator can also be used for fruit or vegetables. It's a fun project with a tasty outcome. For an added challenge, make the food dehydrator from reused or recycled materials. You probably have everything you need around the house.
