I bought these for the bedroom to block a bright outdoor light on the neighbor's house. They do the job! Also, they're very nice looking and the wrinkles from folding were easy to iron out. My window is 48" wide and I expected the curtains (80") to be too wide but they're not.

Quite happy with them on the sliding doors from kitchen to deck. Relatively well-made, hems stitched evenly & straight with thread that matches. The color is almost a match for what I saw on-line. The textured, matte finish of the fabric has an understated, casual look to me. They're sufficiently opaque to provide privacy & effective at blocking a noticeable amount of light & cold air. Price was excellent with markdowns & STP deal-flyer coupon. Washed them in cold water & hung to dry, as directed. They did not shrink, lose color, or ravel. However, some of the creases & wrinkles from being folded for packaging did not relax. I can live with that as they are only fully extended at night; hesitant to iron because of the backing. Maybe the creases will relax more over time.

The curtains look great and are easy to hang, but the pair barely covers our sliding glass doors. I bought two sets, in different colors, for living room and a bedroom -- both look great and really "finish" the rooms.

The only reason I gave these curtains 4 instead of 5 stars is that they come out of the package terribly creased from the folds, and I can't get the creases out even after washing and hanging on the line. I would probably have to iron them to get the creases out, but I haven't had the energy because they are so big (80 x 84). Otherwise they are exactly as I want.

The insulating fabric is made with a white, rubber acrylic and yes the can be machine washed. They do recommend to hang dry them.

I do wash mine in my home washer,on Delicate and then just hang them back up on the rods to dry and they dry pretty wrinkle free. The backing color is light, like a cream.

It is a white fabric backing, and yes they can be machine washed according to the directions. They are quite good at keeping the warmth in and the cold out. Don't know about the heat in summer yet.

Diane,|The acrylic is a soft fabric and the color is an off white. They are to be machine washed in cold water and line dried. I suggest to wash one panel at a time with your large load water level, this way the panels will not be compressed in a tight area causing the acrylic fabric to wrinkle or possibly crack! I haven't had any problem but have never tried to wash more than one at a time or wash on a lower water level! Hope this helps!|Maine Girl

The insulation is a rubbery feeling material that adheres to the curtains. It adds weight to the curtains and makes them feel richer. It does not appear to be a fabric as such. The insulation is white (so the back of the curtains facing the window is white.) They can be machine washed. The wrinkles that they came with "fell out" when the curtains were hung. I did not have to iron them. I have not washed them yet. Martha from Virginia
