Doesn't the grease stain your curtain tops?

My sweet children provided me with the specialized tool necessary to make the factory bits pull more smoothly.

You must first rinse (or lick thoroughly) the popsicle stick. Insert stick between two sides and pry apart.

Opening and closing the curtain has gone from a one at a time pull the tab around the corner to the pull wand actually working quite well.

If we do any more chilly camping I will make additional quilted curtains to keep out the cold. The windshield and side windows are not doublepane (of course) and wow you can really feel the difference.

No, no stains. Just pressed a few dabs into the track with my finger then closed and opened the shades a few times to spread the grease the length of the track.
No stains, no problem.

Windshield curtains

That being said, I still removed the curtains that cover the front windshield and instead cut out two sections of reflective foil window shade material and I place that in the front windshield and just use the curtains on the sides. Total privacy. Bought the reflective windshield material at Camping World for $20. One large roll was enough to do the entire front windshield.
We bought an 02 that had been sitting in the sun for two years so the curtains were sunrotted. I made new ones using the top tape from the old ones. I used ironing board cover fabric as curtain liner. It is soft, lightweight, sun/heat reflective and opaque so blocks cold and light as well. It is really easy to sew on too. Available at most any good fabric store for about @$8. yd. and I think I used about 6 yards.
