Does your shower curtain attack you while you are showering and cling to your skin? Nobody likes this blow-in phenomenon caused by the water spray vortex. There are several solutions, the easiest of which do not require any tools, additional items or special skills. Tame your wild beast in no time by following these suggestions.
Prepare to take a shower. Turn on the water and step into the tub when the water temperature is right.
Adjust the shower head slightly so the water hits the shower curtain, holding it in place. There will still be plenty of water directed at you.
When you are finished, adjust the shower head back to the original position before you step out of the tub. This will prevent water from shooting out on to the floor when you turn the water on for your next shower.
Tips & Warnings
- Additional Solutions:
- Leave the curtain open a little to allow the air to circulate, breaking the vortex.
- Replace the shower curtain or liner with one made of heavy-weight vinyl.
- Attach heavy plastic covered magnets to the bottom of the curtain or liner.
- Install a hotel-style curtain rod that bows outside the tub, holding the curtain out and giving you more room.
- Install shower curtain clips to hold the curtain in place.
- Only use plastic coated magnets. Regular magnets will rust and cause ugly stains on the curtain and the tub.
