One of the most chilling details in the famous shower scene from the classic film Psycho is the closeup on the shower curtain as it is gradually ripped from ring after ring as the corpse falls. And shower curtain hooks can certainly be a horror story! They damage the shower curtain and eventually eat their way into the plastic. A hookless shower curtain is the best solution for the annoyance caused by shower curtain hooks, and a hookless shower curtain is quite easy to find, since more people are saying goodbye to those little hooks that give so many headaches.
A hookless shower curtain can be either one plastic layer or consist of two layers; one of fabric and one of plastic. One variety is folded over the shower pole and is fastened with nickel-plated grommets. It is important to make sure that the interior of the folded area is cleaned and disinfected regularly, since mildew and germs can tend to gather in wet, closed places. This hookless shower curtain can be cleaned with a sponge and warm water.
Your hookless shower curtain can also consist of large re-enforced holes that can be woven around the shower pole. This saves you the trouble of having to worry about mildew accumulating in the foldover shower curtains. It is important, however, to ensure that the holes are well reinforced, since an inferior quality hookless shower curtain can cause more problems than it solves.
You can find a hookless shower curtain in any variety and style. Many people are satisfied with hemp shower curtains which have many advantages. With hemp, you do not need a plastic liner, and many people find this convenient as well as environmentally friendly. Hemp shower curtains air dry very well and have a natural resistance to mildew. It is also a good material for a hookless shower curtain, since it is so durable.
You can find hookless shower curtains in any home and bath store or online. If your shower pole is easily removed, the shower curtain with reinforced holes is the best option. However, if removing your shower pole is an annoying task, a fold over hookless shower curtain is also a good choice.
