Fabric Shower Curtains
by Marion Jones
There was a time when fabric shower curtains went the way of the dinosaur and glass shower doors were all the
rage. Like most fads, however, common sense took charge and the fashions of yesteryear have come around full
circle. You'll now find that fabric shower curtains are all the rage once again and are readily available for
purchase at most stylish home decor stores.
However, don't throw out your old glass doors just yet. The convenience and smart look of the glass doors seem
to be firmly entrenched with some people. Adherents of glass doors will swear by these and will even sometimes be
ready to lay down their reputations for them.
You'll find, when talking about fabric shower curtains, that their owners are complacent and will smile when
questioned about their preferences. Naturally, they'll defend their fabric shower curtains but they also admit to
realizing the advantages of glass shower doors as well. No dripping from the bottom of the curtain, no constantly
damp curtain folds that need to be separated out each morning in order to discourage mould.
Most convenient of all, is the easy cleaning afforded by glass shower doors. However, as the fans of fabric
shower curtains will also tell you, glass doors have their disadvantages too, the biggest of which being that if
you permit the cleaning of the doors to go for even one week, stains will begin to form along the sides where
they're attached to the wall and some of these seem to have much stronger will power than you do.
And if you don't perform a good regular wipe-down of the glass shower doors, your otherwise nice clean bathroom
will begin to look rather grubby. The reason though why fabric shower curtains are an all time favourite of many
people in the know, is for just one reason and one reason only. This is also what leads these people to have a smug
grin on their faces even after they've just spent the last half hour cleaning their bathroom. Fabric shower
curtains are disposable and therefore can be changed easily.
Yes, that's the one whopping big reason why fabric shower curtains are still a firm favourite with loads of
people. Have you ever tried replacing your glass doors on a regular basis? It just won't happen and its doubtful if
it will ever happen within a span of five years, unless that is you take a very large sledgehammer to it by
So, now you know the reason behind that mysterious smile and why fabric shower curtains never really went out of style. Convenience, more convenience and
still more convenience. So if you're thinking of swapping from your glass shower doors to the more convenient,
disposable fabric shower curtains don't be put off by having to get started
Once you remove those doors, your life is bound to become simpler, and if it's not, just exchange one pair of
fabric shower curtains for another. If nothing else it'll make you feel more cheerful!
