If you're like me and come from a small town with old houses, you can remember insulating your windows for the winter. My dad would take plastic sheeting and double sided tape and seal up all the windows we didn't absolutely need to open. Well, now we live in a house with much better windows, but that doesn't mean there isn't an advantage to adding insulation. We’re still losing heat through our windows,
The only things I used for this winter hack were bubble wrap and a spray bottle filled with water.
Here I am freezing next to my window. It's the beginning of December, and it's freezing outside. Step 2: Spray the Window
I couldn't believe that water is the only thing holding this on the the window, but it really works. So I sprayed the water evenly all over the window. Step 3 : Press On the Bubble Wrap
I precut my bubble wrap to size, so I started at one corner and spread my bubble wrap over the window. It sticks very well. I can also remove it easily by pulling and then wiping the window with a cloth.
I could not believe how much of a difference this made! Plus I still had sunlight shining through. I could still open and shut this sliding window, it didn't block any light from coming in, and only obscured my view a tiny bit.
