Clear Shower Curtains!!!

The light shines thru and they just don't mildew until about year 2!!

What a shame it took me so long to learn this. According to that Lifespan calculator- I only have 2 shower curtains left in me. Oh well.

I just buy the cheap plastic liners and replace them 2-3 times a year instead of cleaning.

No no no. You have to use the clear one on the inside and a nice prettier more pricey one on the outside. And have the matching bath rug that goes with the pricey curtain. And you have to have several because you have to change the whole thing with every season.

Reminds me, I've gotta change my living room curtains to the springtime ones.

OMG!!! Entirely WAY too much work. Screw the seasons....get multi-seasoned designs, natural colors...that kinda thing!

ok, ok, ok. I admit it, I've got heavy duty clear liners on the insides and very South Floridian patterns on the outside and have nice bathrugs (several colors) and nice towels that go completely unused /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

PS. I change the liners 2 times a year or so but bleach them about once a month, kills the mildew stuff.

R.J.~~~~likes the colors.

Me too, /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif
BTW, I have found Avon's Skin So Soft to be absolutely great for cleaning my cue, especially the ferrule. Just wipe it down well afterwards with a soft cloth.

How's it going Wendy?

Believe it or not Gayle, that skin so soft makes an EXILLENT bug repelent against black flys and mosquitoes. Don't laugh. it's true! We use it all the time up here when going outdoors this time of year. St.

Hey kiddo, how ya been?
You are right, we've used it for mosquitos for years. Here's another one. A stain on your carpet, use a damp sponge, with cascade dishwasher detergent! Works great! Even takes out red wine. Get the sponge good and wet, dip into cascade liquid, or make a paste with the Cascade granuals, dip and brush, then rinse and pat dry with a towel.

I dunno Gayle. There have been a few instances where I have gotten Cascade on my pants and it had the same affect as bleach. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Let me see. In my condo I stay at workdays, I have a no curtins in the living room or entry, just blinds that are never open. Now the slider in my bedroom, that's a work of art. Firstly, I took 2 inch sheets of foam insulation and blocked it off completely, and what you see from the outside is the flowered bed sheet I have over the insulation with this pinkish color showing through from the insulation. On the inside I fashioned a "curtain" out of the thick, black plastic sheeting used to make temporary partitions when doing construction. I cut it a little bigger than the opening plus an extra 6 inches or so on the height. I then folded the extra 6 inches over and duct taped along the seam creating someplace for the cheap shower curtain rod I bought to go through. Then just stick the shower curtain rod between the slider opening and voila a drapery, in a male sort of way. I haven't figured out how to turn on the vacumn or oven yet, but the TV and microwave work fine.
