I have waited to give this review until the product had been put to the test. I have had this liner in my main shower for over a year. It has been amazing. Most liners will start to build up residue very soon. This one rarely does and if it does, I put it in the washer on a cycle with vinegar and poof--it's gone. The brackets at the top are extremely durable. I am very please with this liner.
I did what I never do.....purchased these without reading the reviews first! I needed a shower LINER that didn't look cheap and one that would not stick to the person in the shower. I thought that microfiber was a good choice and I was right! I read the reviews stating that this was a curtain and not a liner only after my order had shipped, so I decided to wait until it arrived to determine if I needed to send it back. Some of the reviews said that it did not prevent water from leaving the shower so when it came, I installed it over the existing, cheap and flimsy plastic liner that I already had. That did the trick, leaving a soft clean surface to brush against in the shower, while the plastic liner "sandwiched" between kept the outside curtain and bathroom floor dry! This curtain or liner dries quickly and looks and feels great!
You want a shower curtain liner to do two things: contain the shower and dry quickly. Containing the shower spray is a given. This liner seems to dry very quickly, maybe even faster than a vinyl liner, which should minimize growth of unwanted organisms. If it still looks good in a few months, with occasional trips through the laundry, we have a winner. Only reason I did not rate 5 stars for everything is that performance over time is not yet known. Feels much richer than vinyl and I like it so far. For the price, go ahead and buy one and let me know what you think. May be the finest shower curtain liner you ever used.
When I took this shower liner out of the package I couldn't resist wrapping it around myself! Then I had to smooth it over all the family members so they could see how soft it is! I almost hate to use it as a liner and get it wet! Perfect for the first floor bathroom that will be used by everyone. Busy bodies will think we won the lotto with such luxury!
