does what it says on the tin
on 11 March 2015
These are excellent for doing what it 'says on the tin' - ie blacking out the light.
If you are going to find sticking a sheet of plastic to a window somewhat of a challenge then don't buy these; for the rest of us, however, they are ace.
Also, set your expectations according to the price and description. They are not intended for camping, for moving from room to room etc. Yes - your sticky tape will give up the ghost if you keep sticking and unsticking.
We left ours stick up in baby's room and did find after about 6 months and enduring the summer heat, the tape started to peel. This was easily fixed by - you guessed it - a wee bit more tape.
Yes - after that amount of time you will have to remove a bit of tape glue residue from the windows of you want clean windows - these are not like post it notes and are not advertised as such.
We actually cut a flap in ours so that we can leave the blind permanently in place, but lift the flap for a bit of light when we need it - works a treat in our rental property where we needed a temporary and 'undoable' solution.
Honestly, these are great, versatile and easy to work with. Yes - it's a sheet of plastic and some tape - you get what you pay for. But it works. :)
