    Buy a nylon shower curtain, you will never need a liner.  Throw them in the washer, and hang back up to dry.  They last for YEARS.

    Re: OT - cleaning the shower curtain liner

    I've been thinking about how much I hated our glass doors when everyone started suggesting they'd be better than liners.  I agree with Sox - get a nylon liner and wash it.  It comes out clean, unlike glass.

    Although, I found that Soft Scrub works well on shower scumb.  Test in inconspicuous area if it's fiberglass, though.  I've never had it scratch ANYTHING, but I'd hate to recommend something that ruins something of yours that's expensive!  I use it on my enameled stovetop, too.  DH bought black, thank you very much, before I came into his life.  He didn't know better, LOL.

    When I first moved into my apartment, my roommate had a cloth shower curtain liner that soaked through and got water all over the bathroom every time anyone showered.  But, as you know, she's special...  :)

    We don't have one of those anymore. 

    Good luck with the house!

    I love fabric shower curtain liners, but I have a fiberglass tub, and cannot seem to get the stains out of my liner when I wash it :(  It seems that the stains stick to the side of the tub, then they stick to the liner.

    I thought the whole point of a fabric liner was that you can wash it and reuse it as opposed to throwing it out like the plastic ones? The most ecologically sound thing to do would be to read the news online as opposed to having the paper delivered. Any plastic bags I get, I save and use them when I walk the dog. I also poke hole sin them and use them as litter box liners

    are you talking about the shower curtain itself, or the actual plastic liner???  my shower curtain is fabric, and the liner is one of those washable plastics that is resistant to mold, etc.  but it does get a soap buildup along the bottom.

    Both of mine are white...I throw both in the wash, and find that Tide, Oxy Clean and clorox bleach work wonders.  I also add liquid fabric softner for the nice scent and it softens up both wonderfully.  I don't put either in the dryer.  When the wash is complete, I hang it back up and let it air dry.

    I'm finding lately that the powder oxy clean dosen't dissolve as well as it used to, so I'm going to have to switch to the liquid next time I buy it...i'm finding it to be turning into a rock hard form...i do like how it cleans though.   i also find that bleaches other than clorox don't clean as well as clorox (just my 2 cents)

    When I was in college, I had a blue shower curtain with silver moons and stars all over it.  My then-roommate went over all of the silver stuff with glittery silver puffy paint.  It took like three days to dry.

    Give me a topic, I'll come up with something to say.  Kiss

    Left you a message!

    i don't really have anything interesting to say about shower curtains or liners, but we have a window in our shower (frosted glass, no shows for the neighbors) and there is water accumulating between the panes!  Like an inch of water in there!  Don't know what to do.

    We removed our glass doors -- totally painful keeping them clean.  They were older and so much crud would get in the tracks and the chrome pieces.

    We now have a lovely fabric curtain AND a clear plastic liner.  The whole idea is to have the fabric curtain stay outside the tub so it doesn't get soaked, and the plastic liner stays inside the tub to keep the water in. 

    If you cut the bottom of the liner off so there is no seam/hem, there's nothing for gunk to cling to, so less mold and crud. 

    By the way, if you're ever doing a painting project, the $1.00 shower curtain liners are awesome to use for dropcloths. 

    I can't believe I'm still talking about this.  Slow news day!
