A WOMAN has come up with a clever solution to prevent her neighbours from peering into her house using a cheap spray.
In a now viral TikTok video, the New Zealand woman who goes by the name of Tyla explained that while her kitchen is super sunny, her neighbours’ balcony is situated directly across her window which means they can easily see straight inside.
She originally wanted to get a vinyl sticker to cover half of it, but instead decided to try her luck with a $20 (£10) Bunnings frost spray.
While Bunnings is not available in the UK, it is believed that any frosted glass window spray will make a suitable alternative.
“After a good clean, I put up some tape for nice crisp lines and double-checked that they were straight,” she said, while applying thick masking tape.
“I re-did it a couple because I always notice when things are crooked.”
After she perfectly lined the tape towards the top and across the glass window, she then whipped out the spray.
“When you first spray it, it doesn’t look that great but gets better as it dries,” she said.
It took her three coats to get it looking frosty enough to stop her neighbours from peering in, with Tyla saying: “It just kept getting better.”
However, she said the real reward was peeling off the tape.
“I think it turned out really well and we didn’t lose any sun.”
And she wasn’t the only one to think so.
She managed to clock more than 1.6million views on her post, with over 1,200 comments from people also impressed with the result.
“This is a fantastic idea and you did a really good job at it!” one person wrote.
“Yay … thank you … Bunnings here I come,” a second TikTok user wrote.
“Woah that’s like magic,” a third person added.
However, there were many people also concerned with how she can no longer see outside anymore.
“Now you can’t look out! Should have got a blind or curtain that you can see through but they can’t,” one person suggested.
But Tyla said her wife didn’t want a curtain.
“(It) gets in the way of the plants and annoying to clean,” she responded.
