Bloke gives his car homemade tinted windows using three items you’ll already have in your cupboards, here’s how to do it

A BLOKE has revealed how he gave his car tinted windows for free using basic items from his cupboards. 

Russell Brown, who posts on TikTok as @louisb21, has racked up 46 million views for his DIY hack.

He called the trick his “car tint hack”, and showed how he starts by putting maple syrup in a bowl. 

He next gets a paintbrush and adds the syrup to the outside of the window, after first applying protective tape around the edges.

One Russell has coated the glass in the sticky syrup, he then adds a layer of toothpaste on top.

After applying the paste, the car owner can be seen applying cling film to the window and leaving it for an hour before cleaning everything off.

Of course, removing the sticky residue is not an easy task, and he uses window cleaner and a cloth to help.

The finished result shows the car window looking slightly darker than the others on the vehicle. 

The hack boomed in popularity online, and life hack checkers @partyshirt decided to try it to see if it actually worked.

They agreed that the home method does provide some kind of a tint.

They said: “Here’s the window that we tested it on. You can see our reflection here, crazy.

“I don’t know how dark the tint is, but there definitely is a tint on the car.

“It’s not probably body shop grade but it does sort of work.”

IS IT LEGAL TO HAVE TINTED CAR WINDOWS?

The rules for tinted front windscreens and front side windows depend on when the vehicle was first used.

There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.

In the UK, if the vehicle was first used on 1 April 1985 or later, the front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows must let at least 70% of light through.

If you wish to try it out in the UK, you should be aware of the laws surrounding tinted windows.

The government’s website says: “The rules for tinted front windscreens and front side windows depend on when the vehicle was first used. 

“There are no rules for tinting the rear windscreen or rear passenger windows.

“For vehicles first used on 1 April 1985 or later, the front windscreen must let at least 75% of light through and the front side windows must let at least 70% of light through.

“The rules are slightly different though for cars first used before 1 April 1985 though. 

“Here the front windscreen and front windows must both let at least 70% of light through.”

The police and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) vehicle examiners measure window tint use light measuring equipment.

The Gov website continues: “If your windscreen or front side windows are tinted too much you could get a prohibition notice stopping you from using your vehicle on the road until you have the extra tint removed or you could receive a penalty notice or court summons.”
