Aluminium foil over the windows

I'm not in the habit of spying on the neighbours, but I have noticed that a neighbour has foil over the windows.

Never seen that before around here.

A substitute for blackout curtains?

Think it's used to block heat from the sun but not sure how it actually works.

a) Keep heat out
b) Keep warmth in
c) Extreme privacy

Hmm..any "strange" smells emanating from nearby (Ahem)?

Do you remember blackout curtains Minnie?
Minnie-the-Minx  Female  Hertfordshire 15-Sep-2019 20:57 Message #4752784
I don't mister Colonel, but I would imagine you do. ;)

At least, not the original kind. But I have modern ones in my bedroom as there is one of those horrible LED lamp posts right outside my window and I couldn't sleep.

Keeps out aliens. Does the guy wear a colander on his head?

Colander on his head.


That's funny hot one.

Lots of houses have blackout curtains in hotter countries.

Or a belt made of paper clips that trials along the ground to "earth" them.

I don't know is it the same stuff you use on car windows to black them out? I think it looks ugly and vaguely criminal.

We had a reflective foil on our office windows which kept out the strong sunlight and also acted as a one way mirror but it wasn't very nice looking and I wouldn't want it at home.

It looks very much like a sheet of bacofoil to me. :D

"It looks very much like a sheet of bacofoil to me."

Obvious then - slow-cooking the Christmas turkey by sunlight - or rather heat.
