THESE CURTAINS WORK!
I bought and installed 3 of these curtains in a bedroom that has 3 long, skinny windows. I needed to block the view inside from outsiders at night, but I also wanted to hang some shelving inside the windows, so I needed curtains that could provide one-way protection. The windows face south, so the room tends to warm up in the daytime. These curtains were so inexpensive that I chose them as an experiment, in hopes of getting the benefits of solar one-way film without having the hassle of installing the film. My husband installed closet rod sockets at the top of each window and cut some PVC rods for me to hang the curtains. I needed to cut about a foot off the length and it was easily done with scissors (but otherwise, the curtain material is pretty tough for as thin as it is).All I can say is, the curtains have pleasantly surprised me and I am so glad I bought them that I am ordering more (we have 10 of these windows lining our house front). First thing I noticed was how cool the room was at 5 p.m. Wow! I could also look outside and the view was clear and like looking through good sunglasses, but the room was significantly darkened. Second thing was, I went outside after dark and stood in my street with binoculars and looked into the windows. My husband was instructed to jump around the room and wave his arms. Aside from occasional sightings of shadowy body parts, I could not see anything clear or incriminating. People outside can sometimes see shadows moving, so I guess they know we are in there, but we could be naked for all they know.My daughter and husband both think it looks cheesy from the outside, like lining windows with aluminum foil, but they admit under detailed questioning that it's only the hint of it and the curtains do not literally look like we have foil in the windows, it looks like we have shiny silver curtains, and while I appreciate their viewpoint and I myself initially worried about the same thing, I am not now concerned about it in the least. Nowadays, energy-efficient stuff is cool and sexy, and people are not so critical like they used to be.For the price of [$] plus $7 for the hangers, I have curtained one room and gained privacy and energy savings. That's amazing if you think about it. I plan to do the same in the rest of my windows, whether or not I also get film or hang extra fabric curtains. I love them and would have never predicted it.I was not given these as a gift, nor have I been compensated in any way for this review.

I'm not sure what I thought polyethylene is, but these aren't the sheers I was expecting. The material is more akin to the thin solar/heat-retaining blankets I've seen in survival kits. They serve the purpose but I'm looking for something a bit more decorator friendly.

Comments about Solar Curtain

It's so bitterly cold this winter, that they aren't helping as much as I was hoping they would. Although I can imagine that it would probably be worse if I didn't have them up. The only problem for me is, they darken the room too much. During the day when the sun is shining, I like to have the natural sunlight coming in. With these, it looks like it's night time ALL the time.

Comments about Solar Curtain

If it helps with the elec. cost I don't care how ugly they look. We live in the desert of Az. and it gets HOT. Will try to remember to post a update. We could only put them on the back of the house as we live in a sub-division and HOA Committee gave us the letter.

Comments about Solar Curtain

I use my solar curtain for blocking out the sun and heat during the summer. I keep it hung up year round. Easy to use and simple to put up. Whoever thought of this product had a good thing in mind. Thank you.

Comments about Solar Curtain

I did not hang these solar curtains, instead, I taped them to the window pane. They really block out the light and the sun and living in the desert where the heat is nasty they do the job.

Comments about Solar Curtain

I have a hall window that gets baked by the sun in summer. I needed to keep the heat out. I used a tension rod to hang these curtains under my valances. The temperature felt 1,000 degrees cooler in my hall. I'm adding them to 2 more windows that get hot.
