Sun Block for Renters

Above: An Emergency Survival Blanket has been temporarily attached to a casement window, as viewed from outside.

As viewed from inside, the Emergency Survival Blanket is partially transparent.

One half of an Emergency Survival Blanket (about $2 for a 47" x 84" blanket) was temporarily applied to a 3' x 4' window. Best-Test One Coat rubber cement was brushed around each pane, and allowed to dry. Once the silver-blanket film was adhered to the One Coat, excess film was cut off using a single-edge razor blade.

Have you applied the rubber cement on entire window area or just outside boundary ?

How was the effect of these?

I only applied a ~1/2" line of One-Coat around the outside of each window pane. Recently, I have noticed some black mold growing between the film and glass. This might not happen if the film were adhered to the entire pane, but that would be more difficult to remove on leaving.
