YouTube personality AlaskaGranny says a mix of bubble wrap and water is the best insulation trick to keep warm air inside this season. You’ll save money on your energy bill, and you won’t have to rely on those store-bought kits that can be difficult to install or cost a pretty penny. While this method won’t work for super tall windows or glass doors, it’s a great alternative for smaller windows in an entryway, bathroom or kitchen.
Here’s what you do:
Use a spray bottle to mist water on your windows. Then do the same to the bubble wrap, but only the side that has the bubbles. That gives you the best insulation.
Next, press the bubble side up against the window (that’s the side that you sprayed with water). The smooth side should be facing you. Then, apply some pressure so the bubble wrap really sticks like a suction cup.
AlaskaGranny says the bubble wrap should stay in place all winter or for as long as you want. When you are ready to remove it, the bubble wrap comes right off and there won’t be any marks left behind.
