Where can I use a shower curtain?
These days, most shower curtains are, in fact, used over a bath. Modern shower cubicles are now nearly always sold with doors or are designed in such a way that the water does not splash out onto the bathroom floor. However, if you have a shower over the bath, a shower curtain or screen is essential to keep the floor next to the bath dry.
Shower curtains are practical and flexible. When not in use, they are easily moved out of the way, and they leave you more room for getting in and out of the bath than a fixed shower screen does.
What should I look for when getting a shower curtain?
To make your shower curtain effective, it is important that it hangs within the bath while you are showering. This prevents water from dripping outside the bath on the floor. Most bathroom curtains are one size, although some more expensive curtains that are longer can be found. Luckily, you can normally place the shower curtain rod or rail at the right height on the wall to make sure your shower curtain hangs some 15 – 20 cm inside the bath edge.
What are shower curtains made from?
Plastic shower curtains are mostly made of vinyl or PVC. Their advantage is that they last longer and are not prone to mildew or mould. Moisture in the bath does not usually affect vinyl. Plastic shower curtains that come with cut holes to attach to shower curtain rods may tear easily with regular use, especially if the plastic used is of low quality. However, most plastic shower curtains come with reinforced rivets, helping those curtains last much longer.
How do I hang my shower curtain?
Most shower curtains are hung with plastic shower hooks or rings that slide over the curtain rod or rail. Metal or chrome rings are also available. If your bathroom shower rail cannot be unclipped from the wall, you need to make sure that you get fixings that can clip around the rail. Another alternative can be hookless shower curtains which have a snap-on fastening method.
How can I maintain my shower curtain?
If you find some soap stains or dirt appearing on your shower curtain, here is a handy tip to get it back to looking its best: Try cleaning it in your washing machine with two bath towels on the gentle setting. Add 1/2 cup baking soda to your detergent during the wash cycle and 1/2 cup vinegar during the rinse cycle. Let it drip-dry; don’t put it in the dryer.
