I recently relocated from Michigan to South Carolina. I'm staying in the world's nastiest apartment until my house in Michigan sells. This apartment has really nice metal frame, single pane glass windows straight out of 1972. These pieces of junk are so bad, I contintually think they are open because of the sound they let in from the outside. One of the really nice features of this apartment is that my bedroom is close to the freeway. I haven't gotten a good nights sleep in the 2 1/2 weeks I've been there. So I'm looking for some soundproofing ideas for my bedroom windows. So far I'm thinking either some 1" blue styrafoam panels from Lowes/Home Depot or some fiberglass insulation somehow tacked inside of the window frame. Of those 2 options, which do you think would block the most sound? Any other ideas? I don't really care if I can see outside of the window because there is nothing to look at. Whatever the solution is, it has to be easily removed when I leave and it has to block noise really well.
