Dumb question.

What do you do with your shower liner? Not talking about fabric one. Plastic liner under the fabric.

I buy a cheap one at Homegoods and replace it few times a year. I keep hearing that people clean/wash it in a washing machine and donít replace.

I think I used to but it feels like waste of time and not really a saving because simple liner is around $6-7. Whatís the consensus?

One of our bathrooms has a glass shower door, which is a lot of work to keep nice. I donít want to add more work by now washing shower liners. But I also donít want to be wasteful.

I do the same thing. I canít imagine washing plastic in my machine. I just replace but just once a year. I spray it down with vinegar and Iíve never had a problem with lime, slim or mold.

I just replace when it starts to look gross. Here they cost around 2,000 pesos, or about US$2.10, so it makes more sense to just replace it.

I just started buying cloth liners. The issue became too fraught for me.

No there are no rules. People do different things. Some wash them and some replace and some I guess do nothing. I wanted it to know what people do

They are polyester and very thin, but attractive. I sometimes drape the bottom over the shower stool to dry, or else yes the hem will stick to the side of the tub. Also its better if i run a fan. But plastic really isnt necessary.

I have a walk in shower & use the clear plastic. Lol....my actual shower curtain is just for looks. I have a new liner waiting to be used as soon as my AUSSIE puppy grows up a bit & quits thinking the liner is a hanging play toy to attack. Buying new is one of my least expensive treats for me

Haha eskie, the pup likes to hang out in the shower? Helmut does too. He likes to fall asleep in the steam. It knocks him out in a few minutes. I just bought a new bathmat that's fuzzier than the one I used to have, and he curls up on it like it's a bed.

Oh, pup loves the shower EXCEPT if it would mean a bath. He hates tge outside hose. I took up all bath mats because he tried to shred them. So now I just put down a towel & he tries to grab it & run away with it while I am in the shower thus the need for the clear shower curtain liner so I can yell at him when he tries. He is just a year old, 60lbs & worse than a toddler but makes everything into a game
