Looking for ways to keep your shower curtain fresh-smelling and beautiful long term? You’ll want to find a great shower curtain liner.  Although this accessory isn’t going to be the star of your bathroom, the right shower curtain liner will keep your shower curtain (and consequently, bathroom) dryer, preventing the build up of molds or mildews.

Shower curtain liners are available in a variety of materials:

Vinyl

For powerful water repellent shower liners, consider vinyl, which is available in different weights depending on your needs. Additionally, vinyl is easy to clean. Simply wipe it down or rinse it off.

PEVA and EVA

PEVA and EVA shower curtain liners come in heavier weights, are eco-friendly, chlorine-free and have anti-bacterial properties. Like vinyl, they are highly water resistant, while the material clings well to tubs and walls, sealing off the shower to avoid splashes on the curtain or floor.

Fabric

Looking for something a little more formal? Fabric liners are elegant and easy to wash. Most fabric liners are also water repellent. Choose from a variety of materials including cotton, polyester, and nylon. Keep in mind, however, fabric liners don’t adhere to walls as well as vinyl or PEVA/EVA, leaving the possibility of gaps that can get your floor wet.

Additional Shower Liner Tips

  • Check the size – Remember, like shower curtains, liners come in a variety of sizes. Measure your tub and curtain before purchasing a liner to avoid frustration.
  • Magnets and Suction Cups – Regardless of material preference, consider investing in a liner that comes with magnets or suction cups in the bottom corners of the liner. These hold your liner in place to ensure water can’t escape through gaps.
