So I thought I'd fill the draft snakes with rice or pine kitty litter? But I want to put some on our bathroom windows which get really wet from condensation when we shower. So what should I fill those with that could cope well with getting wet and still dry out easily?? Thanks and any other warming suggestions welcome!
good luck, bundle up and let me know how it works out for you. or include pics!

So far, I've made about 10 draft snakes in various sizes for my windows and they do seem to be helping. I've also made 2 fleece curtains that were super easy, as the fleece doesn't ravel so it didn't need to be hemmed, only needed a rod pocket to go over a tension rod. I used white to still allow some light through if I didn't want to open them completely. Unfortunately, white fleece is in high demand for Xmas so every shop near here is out of stock. Will have to wait until next week at the earliest to get more.
Am going to give some thought to that link about aluminum foil heat catchers - has anyone tried them?
I'm still not sure for the bathroom - maybe an outside sack with velcro closure, with an inside sack or two. The inside sack(s) could have something heavy like marbles. Then I could stuff cloth scraps around the inside sack(s). Then the cloth scraps plus the outside sack would be easily washable once I took the marble sack out. Because the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking it would have to be washable or it would get gross.
I'm in one of the rooms I haven't done yet, and brrrrr, oh I just want to be warm!!!
