1) Before pulling the plastic film away from your window frame, you might want to get your hair dryer (yes, the same one you used to install the window kits in the first place) and heat up the area around the double sided tape. This should soften the tape and allow you to more easily pull the tape away from your window frame.
2) Once you’ve softened the adhesive, pull off the plastic film. The adhesive should come right off with the film.
3) Any stubborn areas of tape that just won’t come off? Use the hairdryer (again) to soften the remaining tape. Then, you can use commercial cleaning products, warm soap and water, or a mix of acetone and water to loosen the tape.
5) If the film is still in good shape, you can always store it away for next winter. Just make sure you keep it someplace away from direct sunlight or heat, and don’t forget where you pack it away.Read More
While the Frost King Window Kits are great for keeping out the cold air all winter, Pierre from Michigan uses them to stop another common winter problem: condensation and mold.
The thermal shades in Pierre’s living room are great for keeping the cold air out, but they have one major drawback: they stop all the circulation in the room. With a humidifier going to keep some moisture in the dry winter air, condensation and eventually dangerous mold could form on the windows.
The solution, Frost King Window Kits – but over the entire window, shades and all. With the Window Kits sealing up the shades and the windows, the condensation has nowhere to form and the windows stay dry throughout the entire winter.
Just remember, you’ll be sealing in your shades as well as your windows. So if you want the shades open, leave them up; need them down, put them down, before you put on the Window Kits.

Sure, it’s great for sealing your windows and doors, but did you know, the Frost King Sponge Rubber Foam Tape can also fix your old manual typewriters.
This Frost King user found an old typewriter on Ebay and while it worked…
“it [was] missing the felt under the type-bar rest, so when they return, they clang. I like the sound. It is not that loud, but it is distinct.”
But just one strip of Frost King Foam Rubber Tape under the space bar, and the typewriter was working like new, “It is very, very quiet.”

This homeowner from Long Island had an expensive problem.
The water heater manifold in his basement was costing him hundreds of dollars a year in wasted energy costs. In just the few feet of piping running from the basement water heater to the pipes in the rest of his home, the heat loss was dramatic. Dramatic enough to keep his boiler room some 20 degrees hotter than of the rest of house.
But a few packages of Frost King Pipe Insulation, and a few hours on a sunday solved his problem. Using just the Frost King CF42X and the Frost King P10X, he was able to keep the energy from leaking from his pipes into the rest of his house.
He told us…
That heat is not radiant in my room anymore, it is staying in the water where it is supposed to be, and my wife remarked that the water is hotter now out of the faucet.Read More
