Waterproof plastic sheeting provides an economical way to protect patio furniture and stacks of wood during inclement weather. It can also be used for quick, temporary roof or wall repairs. Simply staple the waterproof sheeting over an opening to protect a home's interior against the elements.
Plastic sheeting can also serve as a makeshift shower curtain. Suspend a length of sheeting over a horizontal pole to create privacy and protect flooring from water. An indoor pet toilet can be created by lining the bottom of a plastic pool with waterproof sheeting.
Purchase black plastic sheeting to create effective, light-blocking window treatments. The sheeting not only ensures darkness, it also provides complete privacy due to its opacity.
