Privacy screens are a great way to maintain your security and privacy in the bathroom, especially over a window in the shower. They are translucent, which allows light in, but completely opaque, so that no one can see in or out. In addition, privacy screens are waterproof, which means one good application is all you'll need for long-term privacy protection.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Adhesive privacy sheeting
  • Measuring tape
  • 1 tsp. baby shampoo
  • Spray bottle of water
  • Squeegee
  • X-acto knife

  1. 1

    Measure the window carefully with the tape measure.

  2. 2

    Measure an area of the sheeting to fit the window with about an inch of extra material around the edges. Cut this area out with the X-acto knife.

  3. 3

    Mix the baby shampoo and water at a ratio of 1 tsp. of shampoo to 1 gallon of water. Use the spray bottle to moisten the surface of the sheeting with this mixture.

  4. 4

    Peel the backing off the adhesive side of the sheeting and apply it to the window, beginning at the top and moving downward.

  5. 5

    Use the squeegee to slide the sheeting into place and squeeze out air bubbles that become trapped between the sheeting and the glass of the window.

  6. 6

    Keep spraying with the water-shampoo mixture as necessary to provide a good slick surface for the squeegee to slide over.

  7. 7

    Use the knife to trim off the extra material around any edges where it may have gathered, and use the squeegee to remove any last bubbles from around the edges of the sheeting.

  8. 8

    Wait at least four days to allow the sheeting to set before resuming use of the shower.
