All my life I have had a Plastic sheeting for a shower curtain or glass doors. Recently I stayed at a hotel and the hower curtain was a water proof nylon. Like the fabric for a wind breaker. anyone use this type of shower curtain and is it easier to clean then the plastic. and does it keep most of the water in. thanks
The more you disaprove, the more fun I am having!

Aimee, for the cleaning, since it is fabric, it can be put in the washer but not the dryer. As for the waterproof part of it, I have no idea. What I do is get a plastic one at the dollar store for the inside and just change it when need be.

I use the liners from the Dollar Tree all the time... that way you can use whatever in the world you want for your shower curtain because the liner protects it.. I keep a supply of liners on hand.. Right now, I have a plastic curtain up with the liner because the curtain is covered with precious little frogs and I want it to last a loooong time! ! I have made shower curtains from sheets lots of times bcause I could not find one the right color or mix of colors...:cool: :cool: :cool:

Yes, lots of people use sheets. I have also heard of using taffeta for a liner. One girl I knew did that but I haven't tried it myself.
