Facts About Cloth Fabric Shower Curtains
The terms cloth shower curtains and fabric shower curtains are interchangeable.
Neverthless, we all use shower curtains for many reasons but mainly for privacy, to keep the bathroom floor dry and to improve the look of the room. The problem with curtains made of synthetic materials such as nylon, polyester and vinyl is that they are not as pleasing to the eye as cloth shower curtains.
Cloth shower curtains made from cotton or linen may absorb water instead of repelling it. Using a shower-curtain liner solves this problem and is essential to pair up with your cloth curtain of choice.
