How to keep a plastic shower curtain liner from blowing inward

by Jodi
My shower stall is not very wide and when I'm showering, the plastic liner keeps blowing inward making it feel very cramped. Magnets won't work because the shower base is fiberglass. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't kow if this will help, but I saw a what I think was a heavier lining last night at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. The claim was that it would help to keep the bottom from bowing in. I really didn't look at it because it wasn't something I need, but you could start there. Hope this helps you.

    Not much really, but a good idea is to try large binder clips across the bottom (if you don't care what it looks like lol). Large binder clips are cheap, can be removed or moved around and should keep the curtain from at least hitting up against you while you are showering. Also, they come in many colors to match, and if they rust no biggie since you can buy a small box for couple dollars or check the dollar store. Just make sure you get the largest ones for the most weight. Just a thought... good luck

    You could try small magnets on the bottom edge of the curtain, One on one side of the curtain and the other opposite it. I would use at least 4 sets (total of 8 magnets) along the bottom. Often there is metal in the tub and the magnets hold the curtain in place. They come off easily for cleaning. Used to have curtains and liners with them in the hem. Worth a shot and dollar store magnets are cheap.

    Purchase a few Velcro tabs and adhere one side of the Velcro to the fiberglass stall and the other part of the Velcro to the bottom area of the shower curtain. Be sure the tabs match up when installing so the pieces line up with each other when you close the curtain.

    Hi Jodi: Hate that! What I did was to make some small packets for pebbles out of material that's porus, like burlap and sewed them closed. Then I attached them to the bottom of the shower curtain with hair clips :) Easy to put on and remove and it holds the curtain down. I made 6.

    A curved rod will keep the curtain farther away from the water, making it less likely to get drawn in. A binder clip and a suction cup can fix your shower woes. Grab a suction cup and binder clip. If you don't have a tub around your shower to stick magnets to, try suction cups.
