How do you cover car windows?

What’s the best way to cover car windows? I’m going to be living in my car for a while and I need to cover my windows at night to keep myself safe.

There are a few different ways that you can cover your car windows for sleeping:
  • Open your window slightly, then put a towel or t-shirt in the opening and close the window so that the fabric hangs mostly inside the car.
  • Use masking tape to cover your windows with newspaper or aluminum foil.
  • If you have the funds, get your windows tinted.
  • Purchase or sew blackout curtains. You can close these in the windows like you would close the t-shirt or towel, or you can purchase curtain clips for your car windows.
  • You can purchase car curtain rods to hang curtains or other types of cloth in your windows.
If you’re sleeping in your car, you’ll want to make sure that you’re well protected with a good car insurance policy.
