    Wouldn't a reflective material or spray paint be better?

    At lowes or home depot there's this hvac tape. Its a aluminun type foil tape for sheet metal. Its pricey but I buy it and use it to light proof and gain reflectivity at the same time.

    Lowes buckets are opaque. there is no light that gets through the bucket or the top that is sold separately. You can hold the bucket or top up to the lights and see that. The home Depot bucket on the other hand....
