Mylar Space Blankets.

There are more than 51 things you can do with them. I also use in my grow room to reflect light on my....lettuce....
You can find them on Amazon really cheap 10 for $10 and up. High temp. here will be 2 degrees in a few days so I cut em up and line my socks.

1. I make shades out of them for my south-facing windows in the summer time (hang under the blinds)

2. Thanks, I'll try that one.

Getting ready to try making some fishing lures out of them. They are really shiny.

3. At hydroponics stores

You can get big rolls really cheap. I've found it cheaper than buying the ponchos or blankets.

4. I'll admit I probably have 10 space blankets tucked

into various backpacks, fanny packs, 1st aid kits, car truck (actually I probably have more than 10) and I've never opened a single one. Not surprising since I spend almost my entire live in California. I'm going to break one out and see what I can do with it now that I'm in the frozen wasteland of southern Washington.
