Solar Water Still

If any of these are not available for you and you have a sheet of plastic then you can make solar water still.

Step 1: Dig a hole where you want your solar water still to be. 
Note: make sure where you’re building your solar water still have a clear surrounding 
Step 2: Place any container you have in the center of your hole.  
Step 3: Fill the gaps surrounding the container with anything wet, such as leaves.
Step 4: Place your plastic sheet over the hole and hold it in place
Step 5: Place one small rock in the center of the plastic, just over the container.
Step 6: Condensation will occur on the underside of the plastic and run down to the center. It will drip into the container filling it with condense drinking water.
