A SELF-DESCRIBED "RV hippie" has shared her DIY hack for keeping her home cool.

The TikToker showed her followers how she reduces her electric bill during the summer months.

In her video, Sabrina (@sabrinasontheinternet) explained: "The electric bill in my RV was $150 so I need to do something about this."

She told her followers that she had wanted to get a window film but it was too expensive.

Instead, Sabrina decided to create "a DIY window film using aluminum foil and cardboard."

Showing her followers her cardboard-lined windows, she said: "I took this box and I cut a piece out of it and I put it in the window."

She added a layer of aluminum foil to one of the windows to reflect the sunlight.

"My RV is like a greenhouse the way it magnifies the sun," she explained.

However, Sabrina revealed that she only got around to finishing one window.

This meant she was able to compare the effectiveness of the DIY film to her bare windows.

"I want to show you the difference, this is the window that has the aluminum foil on it, and no sunlight is coming through," she explained.

Sabrina also showed her followers her uncovered windows for comparison.

"I really like that I can pop this out easily if I want some sun," she told her audience.

She did warn viewers that the DIY hack may cause your windows to "heat up and weaken."

The RV-dweller explained: "I’ve seen mixed reviews so try this at your own risk."
