Three Things to Consider Before Buying a Shower Curtain

If you’re searching for a curtain based on color schemes or “themes,” then you might be doing yourself, and your family, a disservice.

Decorating your shower so your little mermaids feel perfectly at home could win you the “parent of the year” award. That waffle-patterned, seahorse-motif may be a perfect fit for your seashore-themed bath, but you might also end up replacing it frequently if it’s not also mold and mildew resistant. Shower curtains that fight odors and are easy to clean might not top Ariel’s list, but they will surely make your shower a better and cleaner place to, well, take a shower.
