Hello Blogville! As I’ve mentioned, we moved this past weekend! We’re short one shower curtain in the new place and I’ve been trying to decide between the 87,000 shower curtains Amazon offers. I was going to post a wide variety of the weird and wonderful ones that I’ve seen, but believe it or not the post got too long, so I decided to limit this post to one particular variety. It turns out that there are people the world over (or at least wherever Amazon delivers) who forget to take off their clothing before showering. These people need a huge reminder plastered across the biggest surface in their bathrooms. Get Naked. Here’s another shower curtain that will remind you, if you happen to be one of those people and would like a matching silhouette to aid your memory. A third version of the get naked curtain, but with a little more flourish. And a fourth. This one adds a swear word. Presumably the owner of this shower curtain will be undecided about whether or not to get undressed before showering but finally decide that he or she has nothing to lose. For those who just want the basic reminder but prefer a less ornate font. There are actually no shortage of fonts. Of course there’s one for people who suffer anxiety upon showering. Here’s one for people who need the reminder but don’t want to give up on that nautical theme. There’s even chevron! I’m sure people who buy these shower curtains have well reduced the incidences of getting into the shower fully dressed. And now I have to legally warn you that these are all affiliate links. If you happen to suffer from forgetting to get undressed before showering and click on one of these amazing reminder curtains, I will make like a penny and a half or something. I mean, it’s never actually happened but I believe I have to tell you that. Happy showering folks! One of these days we’ll be unpacked and I’ll have pictures of the new place!

I have a problem. I insist on using those excellent fabric shower curtain liners in my shower, because the home shower is a Special Place and deserves to be treated as such. So, the problem: The side of the fabric liner closer to the shower head/faucet tends to get mildew-y and gross along the bottom. (Note that this doesn’t happen anywhere near as much on the other side.) I’m devoted to those fabric liners, but I have had trouble washing them in the past, because they seem to immediately lose their waterproofing in the wash. So when I hang them back up, they’re more “fabric” than “liner”—meaning I have to trash them when they get mildew-y and Amazon a new one. So what can I do here?

If my shower was bigger on the inside, I’d never leave. This oil painting styled Doctor Who Tardis shower curtain is an homage to Van Gogh as well. Double nerd credit. It’s available for $17.08 on Amazon. But if you’re looking for something a bit more traditional, you’ll want to check out this TARDIS shower curtain.

I have no data on this practice, but if I were to guess, I would say that most people opt to simply replace a moldy shower curtain liner with a new one. They’re inexpensive and can be purchased at drug stores or grocery stores or on Amazon in a snap. Right? Right. However, most shower curtain liners can’t be recycled, which means that vast swaths of mildewed plastic or vinyl end up in our landfills. That may not move you at all, which is why it should also be noted that cleaning a liner is cheaper than replacing it. We might only be talking about a difference of a few bucks, but why not save those few bucks and put them toward the purchase of something more exciting, like a new Chapstick or a liter of cola?

In terms of fabric liners that seem to lose their waterproofing after being laundered, the most likely explanation is that it’s a brand-specific problem, since, like, the whole point of getting the fabric kind is that it’s so easily machine-washed. (I suppose there are other points to be made in favor of buying a fabric liner. The smell issue is a big one for a lot of people, so.) Blessedly, Amazon allows us to sort products by bestseller within terrifically niche categories like “shower curtain liner,” which means that you can pretty quickly scan reviews of the top-selling brands to see which ones hold up best after washing.

Be part of your world? “No,” says Grumpy Cat, but wow does that cat rock that red wig. It’s made from a water-repellent polyester fabric and is available on Amazon for $24.40.

Shower curtain liners come in a variety of materials, but for today’s purposes, we’ll stick with the three most common types: plastic, vinyl, and fabric. While all three types can be machine- or hand-washed, the advantage of plastic and vinyl liners is that they can also be spot-treated while they’re hanging around on the rod.

If you’ve got a front-loading washing machine (the type with a door that opens outwards from the front of the machine) and a drum that does not have a center agitator, washing your shower curtain liner, regardless of material, is going to be a cinch. (This is also true of top-loaders that don’t have a center agitator.)

First, you should be prepared for the sad but likely outcome that the liner will get shredded in the wash. There are precautions you can and should take to avoid this, but even so, the center agitator is no friend to a shower curtain liner.

The instructions for washing a liner in a top-loading machine are the same, with the addition of some towels to provide a buffer between the thin liner and the center agitator’s fins. Many people choose to launder cleaning rags along with the shower curtain liner—the theory being that these are all rather funky items in need of cleaning that can go in a load together to be ridded of their funk. As you load the machine, do your best to put the towels or rags around the agitator and place the liner on the outer edge of the drum.

Regardless of which product you use, I would strongly suggest wearing a pair of rubber gloves for this job—even if you use vinegar, which can make contact with your skin without causing irritation in the way that bleach or my beloved X-14 will, you’ll be happy for the gloves, because having to grab a damp, mildew-y shower curtain liner with your bare hands is iiiiiiiiiiiicky. And you’ll probably have to do some unfolding and peeling apart of particularly grotty sections of the liner that have folded back on itself. So: Wear the gloves. You’ll be glad you did.

If this were a SyFy movie, it would be called RoboBear v HipsterJack. My money is on the bear. Sharp Shirter makes this hilarious shower curtain along with many others, like another curtain with these two foes having a beer together. It’s available for $40.
