I bought these curtains to insulate my sons' room against heat and light that their blinds failed to keep out. With the late setting and early rising of the sun, it was hard for them to go to sleep and stay asleep, even with the blinds pulled shut. Additionally, the morning sun was so intense on their windows that their whole room heated up and remained the hottest room in the house all day long. These curtains do the job I bought them for: block out the remainder of the light and keep out at least some of the heat. Last night, we hung them in their room; this morning, they slept an extra hour and their room felt much cooler! I put my hand behind the curtain and it was at least ten degrees warmer behind the curtains than in front of them. For the price, you can't beat it! I love, also, that they're machine washable. The only downside I could see is that I would not recommend them as the sole window covering, because if the blinds are open, they don't perform nearly as well at light-blocking (at least not 99% as they claim).
