Be careful when using tin foil as reflector. When water condenses on the 
tin foil it will oxidize, and when this gets into the water it's toxic!!
I use it myself but have to change the tin foil every couple of weeks and
clean the ceiling of the hood. BTW I think wrinkles (not too many) might do
a better job spreading the light.
