I agree with the plastic film. It is a vinyl plastic with a square or
diamond pattern that lets most of the light through, yet completley obscures
what is behind it. I used it on my garage windows. If you apply it carfully,
it looks like the pattern is part of the glass.
You can laugh, but I used a roll of brown paper like they use to wrap packages
for the post office on mine, leaving a slit window for me to look out along the
tops of the windows. I just stretched out a piece long enough to reach across
all four panes and secured it with thumb tacks. Since the outside of the door
is a kind of bronze color, the combination is actually pretty attractive and now
I don't have to sweat one of the neighbors looking in and seeing me working out
there in my boxers.
It cost essentially nothing, lasted almost ten years before I had to replace it,
and is instantly reversible if you need it to disappear for some reason.
Another option is to find a store still selling holiday leftovers and
look for with spray frost or spray snow.
You can make your own frost mix by saturating isopropol alcohol with
epsom salts and a *little* table salt.
Just mix it and sponge on the windows. (I imagine a spray bottle
would work if you just "misted" the window)
Some of these say use beer, other say water. I suggested isopropol
since it will evap quickly and not leave any organics like beer will.
A slight word of warning, the salt is hydrophilic (attracts water)...
I wouldn't use it in a high humidity enviroment.
Ich habe keine Ahnung was das bedeutet, oder vielleicht doch?
Instead of a garage this applies to rear facing windows. New
construction behind me makes me wish to alter the transparency of my
windows. First thought is a reflective film that would allow persons
inside to easily see out but block viewing from outside. Day and night.
