theres an even cheaper material. the insides of chip bags. pretty sure its mylar or aluminum, either way very reflective and youve got some munchies. just be sure to wipe off the grease before use

I'd make fat joe look skinny by the time I ate enough chips for the bags to cover the walls of my grow room.lol

An even cheaper option is a big tin of matt white paint and it`s more reflective!

Yeah, white reflects all of the light spectrum. Mylar doesnt because of it colour, just as black absorbs light. Plus if you hold mylar up to a strong light you can see through it so it is loosing some light through the materiel. Also the folds and wrinkles in the mylar dont distribute the light evenly and make a lot of it unuseable. Matt white diffuses the light all around rather than reflecting in one direction like a mirror.
