Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IanCameronWolff Great, cute curtain
Very nice, very opaque curtain so neighbor couldn't see what's inside during night. It keeps inside bit dark. I bought 1 large(61"cherry rod) because the one I had came with 2 piece...and it start to bend little in the middle. Looks heavy. With new curtain rod, it looks very nice!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fireball Ohio Buckeye Thermal Crept Back Tab Curtain
I loved the color of these curtains. I unfortunately had a bad experience when ordering them through the mail. They apparently come with two different TOPS--hoops and sewn threaded hole. I ordered two of the curtains and Home Depot sent them to me with two different tops, which of course I couldn't use. OY VEY! Who was the idiot that did that packaging? Sigh…I'd use the curtains immediately if I could find them in the appropriate length with the hoop top.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Natti321 Stinky and beware washing!
This is for the thermal crepe curtains in tilled soil (a chocolate color). I really liked these curtains at first, despite their smell. They darkened the rooms pretty good and they have a beautiful, sturdy look to them. However, they smelled pretty bad (I think it's the foam backing). I figured that they would air out after a few days, so I hung them up. Days turned into weeks, and then into months. They still smelled horrible, especially when I had the windows closed.
So I washed them, just as the tag says, in COLD water. When I pulled them out of the washer, they were all wadded up and stuck together. The foam backing had become sticky, sticking to itself. As I tried to gently pull the edges apart, the foam would rip off, making the blackout feature ruined (when you hold them up to the light from the front, you see the light come through wherever the foam had come off). I also noticed that there was a subtle white residue in some places in the front of the curtains, no doubt also from the foam backing. Keep in mind this is BEFORE I put them in the dryer. I decided not to dry them, if COLD water did this to them. Maybe it was my soap? I use regular Tide. If it was, the label should say to use a certain type of soap.
If you don't mind the smell they're great, but keep in mind they WILL NOT air out over time. Maybe dry cleaning would work but that's not in the directions and it may not get the smell out. Well, I had bought 12 (yeah, do the math) of these panels so needless to say I was very disappointed. They are basically ruined and I have to find new curtains now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TulsaBill Thermal drapes keep our home warm
After winterizing our older single paned widows (e.g. caulk any leaks), we decided to add these drapes to create a better thermal break from the cold outdoors. What a difference it made! Granted it's not the same as replacing our old windows with more enegy-efficient double-paned windows but it really helped keep the room warm.
In summary, these drapes would work well for anyone looking to either block out the cold or heat, depending on the season.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CTX2 Yes, they stink.
I have to be honest I didn't buy into any of the reviews that said these smell funny - but alas -- oh they smell alright and it's a weird smell at that. It's been about 3 weeks and many, many short doses of febreeze and my living room finally does not smell weird upon entering it - or I've just gotten use to it. They look very nice and they do the job and my A/C finally now does not run non-stop. So if you can wait out the "stink stage" of these curtains - they look nice and work well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Great until you wash them
I have purchased from the Martha Stewart line before and was very excited to receive these. They were delivered quickly. However, they smelled horrible when unpacked. In fact, we couldn't stand to be in the bedroom with them as they "aired out." The second day I washed them as directed and the foam backing cracked and peeled to make a big mess. I was extremely surprised at the low quality and returned with no hassles.
