Wrap Your Windows for Extra Winter Insulation
Best Years in Life) Here is a cheap, easy and
effective way to provide extra insulation for your
windows originally posted at Foodgasms Recipes on
Facebook. All it takes is some sheets of bubble wrap, a
pair of scissors and a spray bottle filled with water.
1. Cut the bubble wrap to the size of the window pane
2. Spray a film of water on the window using a spray
3. Apply the bubble wrap while the window is still wet
and press it into place.
4. The bubble side goes toward the glass.
5. To remove the bubble wrap, just pull it off starting
from a corner. You can save it and use it for several
years. It does not leave a mess or stains on the window
6. If you have trouble with the bubble wrap separating
from the window when the film dries, you can try adding
a little Glycerin to the water, but this probably won't
7. A few small pieces of double back tape can be helpful
on really stubborn windows.
8. The bubblewrap can be installed in the fall, and
removed in the spring. Judging by how mine looks after a
year, it may last quite a while.
9. When you take the bubble wrap down, put a small
number in on the upper right corner of each piece of
bubble wrap, and write down which window that number
goes with on a piece of paper. Save the paper for the
installation next fall. This tells you instantly where
each sheet goes, and which way its oriented.
