In the November edition of Good Housekeeping magazine on page 132 the Good Housekeeping Institute recommend "Magic Blackout Blind" to their readers . They recommend Magic Blackout Blind is used to stop light coming into childrens nurseries. A reader writes in with this question - Our spare room doubles as a place for our six month old granddaugher to sleep during the day. The curtains don't block out enough light, however, so I've been pinning up dark sheets at the window. Have you come across a better solution?
Answer - Yes, we have. It's called Magic Blackout Blind £34.99 (01905 451552 www.magicwhiteboard.co.uk/magic-blackout). What you get is a roll of black material, perforated to make 10 sheets, each measuring 60cm by 80cm, that cling to the window using static. If the shape doesn't fit your windows, the material can be cut with scissors. The Magic Blackout Blind material is re-useable. You can even fold it carefully to take travelling - and does leave marks when you peel it off. Our tester found that hardly attractive, the material was great at blocking out light in the nursery. It stuck to the window easily, staying in place even when the window was open.
