Even though a lot of water splashes on a bathroom curtain, it gets dirty after a while and needs cleaning. So what makes them dirty? Hard water and soap scum slowly builds up on the curtains and remains even after they dry off. These dry soap deposits give off a moldy smell over time and are visible as ugly spots on the curtains.
All bathroom shower curtains are the same length measuring 72" long. They also are all one width, generally 70" wide. Some shower rods will require two of the same curtain to cover the entire rod like with an oval curtain rod. Vinyl liners are also the same size and designed to be placed behind a fabric curtain so the fabric does not fade or mildew or allow water to soak the bathroom floor. If you find that your vinyl liners are too long and show beneath the fabric curtain, you can always cut the bottom of them off shorter than the fabric curtain. This will not affect its efficiency in keeping water from soaking the floor.
You know of course why we use shower curtains. Not only to protect our naked bodies from the eyes of our surrounding friends and family, but also to protect the furniture, towels, floor and everything else in our bathroom from being soaked in water from the shower. You have probably seen this happen either by your own doing or someone in your family. If you have ever spilled a glass of water on the floor, you know that the small amount of water in that glass seems to be a lot more once it hits the floor. Imagine what 15 minutes in the shower without a shower curtain would be like.
