How To Keep Your Home Warm By Insulating Your Windows
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Hair dryer
- Measuring tape
1. Clean your windows well around the edges, then apply the double sided tape found in the kit along the outside edge of your windows.
2. Remove the backing from the tape.
3. Apply the plastic sheet to the tape, covering the whole window.
4. Run a blow dryer over the plastic to smooth out any wrinkles.
That’s it! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to get rid of drafty windows. Stay warm, and don't worry...spring is around the corner!

Have used in the past on drafty window, works great, no drafts. Left up yearround. Removed after second winter and replaced with new plastic. I did have issues with removing the old adhesive, couldn't get it all off.
Is this good to use in the summer to jeep the A.C. in? I live in Florida... worried about condensation...
How do you remove the tape if you need to paint?
