I actually bought these to use as a combination shower curtain and window treatment for my clawfoot tub so I needed the scotchgard treatment. They work wonderfully for this purpose, although this is a guest bath that is rarely used so I can't say how they'd hold up to daily use. They don't look the same on either side of the fabric, but since they are almost always hung as curtains, it doesn't bother me.
These are the best curtain rods I have ever bought. They are sturdy and well constructed. The person who designed them really thought out the design well. We put them up outdoors, but I wish we would have used them on all of the indoor windows as well!
