Have you ever lived in a house or apartment that has a bathroom with no privacy, or had a window that looked out on an ugly view? Blinds and curtains can certainly be helpful in covering up your windows, but you can also create your own window frost
. Here is a simple recipe to give you privacy
and give you a better view.
You will need:
4 heaping tablespoons Epsom salts
1 cup beer
1 paintbrush, 2 inches wide
Facial tissues or a terry cloth
Make sure your windows are clean by washing with equal parts vinegar
and water. Dissolve the Epsom salts
in the beer and let the foaming mixture sit for about 30 minutes. Apply with the paintbrush in a circular motion to the inner windowpane. The mixture will dry to form beautiful crystals that will last for a long time.
For an even prettier design, try applying the salt and beer mixture with a wet facial tissue or a terry cloth. Apply as if you were washing the window. While the mixture is still wet, go back and dab it with the wet tissue. This effect will give you a nicer crystallization pattern. To remove the crystals
, simply wash the window with water and a terry cloth.
Now you are ready for taking your bath in private. You won't have to worry about nosy neighbors and what's even better, you don't have to look out at that ugly brick wall across the way.
