Blackout curtain has ability to block light is even more powerful if you opt for a darker shade. The interwoven layers of the drapes are composed of a top fabric layer, a high-density black yarn along with a black fabric layer. These interwoven layers not only enable this drape to efficiently block bright light and noise but it also exudes potent insulation properties. The microfiber coating doubles as a great energy-saving solution by balancing out the room temperature.

What fabric should you use to make curtains?

Although there is an array of colors and styles to choose from, we recommend picking a darker shade as it will block and reflect maximum sunlight, creating an optimal sleeping solution for you light sleepers out there. The 42-inch curtain comes with 6 grommets. The grommets holes are big enough so that it fits most rods in the market and they also let you slide the window curtains easily. Mind you that each package includes only one panel. So, you might have to order two panels if you have a wide window. Provided the inexpensive price tag, terrific light blocking ability and ease of setting up, that shouldn't pose a problem.

Why should I purchase a blackout curtain?

The black of blackout curtain inserts woven into the material increases the curtain's blackout strength. The only complaint we had is that the black lining doesn't go all the way to the top of the drapes. Thus, the light will pass through the top portion of the grommets. Not a significant flaw, still, we chose to be picky. If you are a light sleeper or need a curtain to create a cave-dark environment for your home theater or computer operation, this could be a great choice. That's why you can purchase a blackout curtain. This one made the cut with its terrific ability to cancel out 99% sunlight and about 60% external noise. The strength of Utopia Bedding Curtain lies in the fabric it is composed of.

What are blackout curtains used for?

The insulated blackout curtain making it a perfect sleeping solution for baby rooms, office, computer rooms, and bedrooms. Even if your existing panels are not that wide, you can loop one or two extra rings into the grommet to reduce the gap. Cool hack, isn't it? The rings you get with the drapes aren't rust-proof but they are solid enough to get the basic job done. The material, upon touching, is soft and lightweight. However, it is thick enough to prevent harsh sunlight from peeping into the room.

My toddler hit my Emerson LED tv with a curtain rod and scratched so now there is white spot when watching tv. How can I fix it?

You replace the screen. It may be more cost effective to replace the set than fix it, depending on the size.

Must be open and bring those curtain out to clean it effectively. Otherwise have it checked by JVC Service Center near you. Good luck

Touched the shutter curtains

Yes it will have an affect on your shooting. The curtains will not operate correclty if they are opening and closing at different speeds and / or not closing or opening completely. Your film will expose at different levels, and you will not get a correctly composed shot. You could try to coax the curtain back into place by GENTLY rubbing it with a Q-tip in the direction it is supposed to go. But those things are fragile and can be fickle. Your best bet is to take it to a shop.

Nikon D90 rear curtain sync will shoot flash twice

That is most likely the TTL preflash and should not show up in your final exposure.

Try setting the flash control to manual (e2 under the Bracketing/Flash menu). That should give you only the one flash at the end.
