Insulate A Window With Bubble Wrap and Save Tons This Winter!




Homeowners across America know all too well that when the winter rolls in, heating costs rise. Each year, the U.S. Energy Information Administration releases a report showing how extreme cold weather contributes to a surge in heating prices. For instance, propane users in the Midwest were hit the hardest, paying nearly 66 percent more than last winter. But believe it or not, there is simple measure we can use to reduce those high costs.
Alaska Granny shows us how with bubble wrap. Yes, bubble wrap. First, she cuts the bubble wrap to the dimensions of the window. She then takes a bottle of water and sprays the window, and the bubbly side of the wrap. Granny then sticks the wrap to the wall to ensure more heat stays inside the home.
As mind blowing as this hack is, it should not be of any surprise. According to Todayifoundout.com, bubble wrap was invented by two engineers Al Fielding and Swiss inventor Marc Chavannes in Hawthorne, N.J. in 1957. The two were not trying to make a product to be used as packaging material, however. Rather, they were trying to create a textured wallpaper.

They started out by sealing two shower curtains together in such a way that it would capture air bubbles which would make the textured appearance for their wallpaper. Needless to say, this wallpaper idea didn’t sell too well, but it surely works to help reduce heating costs.

    Девочки добра вам!

    Посоветуйте, какой вы профессиональной косметикой или кремами пользуетесь?

    Я для себя сделала вывод, что эффективнее всего действует омолаживающая косметика и крема из Китая, Кореи, Таиланда.
    Очень заметно действует коллагеновая маска Золотой кристал и другие.

    Тип кожи у всех разный, надо подбирать косметику под себя, но вот например универсальные варианты косметика для волос

    Буду рада вашим советам!
