Comments on: In Praise of the Fabric Shower Curtain http://blvddesigns.wallypop.net/?p=298 Just another WordPress weblog Thu, 09 Feb 2023 06:48:22 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.2.2 By: sarah http://blvddesigns.wallypop.net/?p=298#comment-1139 sarah Thu, 22 Oct 2009 18:24:45 +0000 http://blvddesigns.wallypop.net/?p=298#comment-1139 It does dry completely between showers. The top half stays dry all the time, the bottom half is pretty much dripping when we step out, but is down to just DAMP about 2 hours later. Our towels are rarely dry after 1 day. That is the nature of towels, though. First, they're thick and wooly, made to trap moisture. Second, they hang, usually doubled over, and usually against a wall. Not exactly awesome for air circulation. The shower curtain has a leg up, so to speak, because it hangs in the middle of the room with air circulating on both sides, and it's only one layer hanging there. I'm not sure there's a natural fiber that's any less absorbent than cotton - they're all about the same. Cotton, hemp, et. Rayon would probably dry faster, though it would be a challenge to find a rayon thick enough to actually work.

Soaking wet all the way up? I would like to move away from vinyl, but my bathroom is such that the towels don't dry well, and they wouldn't get anywhere near as wet. :/ I wonder if a less absorbent fabric than cotton would work, too.... Thanks for giving me something to think about!
