To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pros: No odor upon opening; the company offers an email address -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- for folks that have issues with the product (I didn't contact them, but they state they will "provide a replacement, or facilitate a return." Cons: Mildew appeared after the first five days; magnets are weak; material is cumbersome and doesn't lay flat (so it touches you) for the tub size I have
Bottomline: It's functional and serves its purpose, but seeing mildew within the first week after the advertising states "no more mildew" and "mildew resistant" is a bit extreme. I have never had this experience with other "natural" liners. I can note that it was the onset of summer when I received this and mildew doesn't appear as quickly during the colder months. Buy with this in mind and make use of their 90 day money back guarantee or their 12 month warranty if not satisfied (I don't know if these are two separate offerings, but my packaging materials state them as such). My rating of this product is a 2.5.
The liner itself is good, so far held up against mildew forming and sheds water well. A bit disappointed with the magnet though, it's not really working, The steam from the hot shower keeps blowing the liner up, sometimes the magnet can help keep the liner in place for a few minutes, but most often not. I hope there will be more magnets or stronger magnets, then the liner will be perfect.
I'd like to say that I'm satisfied with this shower curtain because it's decently thick, crystal clear, and amply wide enough, all of that is kind of a moot point when they apparently thought that three small magnets (each roughly the size of three dimes stacked on top of each other) was sufficient for a 72" wide shower curtain. That's one tiny magnet every two feet. And the magnets are barely strong enough to snap into place against an old, metal bathtub.
This becomes an issue when you consider that hot air rises and cold air sinks. What this means is that the bottom of the shower curtain ends up blowing inwards during a shower - which is exactly why I was replacing my OLD shower curtain with this one that has magnets. Unfortunately, as I've said, the three tiny magnets aren't enough to do anything - which means I've wasted money and will have to buy a different shower curtain.
Save your money and find something else, unless you like cold air blowing in on your feet during a hot shower.
Not as heavy duty as I expected it to be. Feels more like medium duty. My last one was heavy duty and was maybe twice as thick.. it felt super durable whereas this one feels a bit flimsy and does not feel worth the $11something I paid. Lesson learned to stick with my past orders or just get one from TJ Maxx (less than $8) etc next time I see it again. I would not recommend at this price but I give it 3 stars anyway since it is clear, is the right size, has all holes and performs as a regular shower curtain liner.
Gave 3 ⭐️ because it's supposed to be mildew resistant and all that jazz... It didn't survive a household of 2. I had such high hopes. I like to keep the bathroom CLEAN, so there's no reason why this shower curtain should have mildew/whatever is growing on it. I've bleached it in the clothes washer, taken it outside and power washed it, and even hand-scrubbed it. After each cleaning, the minute there's a shower, the residue becomes apparent and "the mildew" grows bacK.
My purpose was to just hang them over side by side windows to slow the breeze coming in and not blow papers around. The clear was for a window that was not reflected on my monitor. But the other window would reflect the sun at times, hence the white one, I don't need nor want to block out the light just lessen the harsh direct sunlight.
The clear is really just what I wanted, it has a nice thick heavy feel to it and does what I needed it to, just hang over 2 open windows.
The White one, well not so good. As it is really alot thinner than the clear. As I hung the white one on a window, right next to the clear one placed. This one is almost flapping in the wind when compared to the clear one mostly just hanging down. I also tested by switching the plastics from one window to the other, and same results the White one just isn't working like I wanted. The amazon website on these items both say 8 gauge.
Not going to bother shipping back, as I will find something for it. But will never buy the clear again.
Sad that both items are linked to the same page, just different option, so the stars will have to go down the middle, otherwise I would leave a 5 and a 2 star.
I bought the frosted one and it is barely good enough.
It does have magnet-weights but they're not very strong, not very heavy either, and there aren't enough of them. So even with those this curtain liner blows around like there's a hurricane on flag day.
It blows. But wait there's more! It was shipped folded up tight, and although I've had it hanging for a few weeks now, there's no sign of those creases ever coming out. I even tried a trick I heard about where you heat it up with a hair dryer along the creases. More blowing, but to no avail.
It is waterproof though so I'll keep it... to use as a dropcloth for a painting project. There's probably a better shower curtain liner out there though.
These liners are too thick and stiff, so every time you slide the shower curtain open, a couple of the holes pop right up off of the shower hooks. Very annoying. Plus, the thickness causes the liner to not lay well, so you bump it with your elbow more than normal. LiBa used to make a thinner shower liner that was fantastic and significantly cheaper...this one isn't nearly as good, but costs 50-100% more. I returned mine and can't recommend this item. However, the reason I gave 3 stars instead of 1 or 2 is due to their excellent customer service and the fact that this liner seems to be a good quality item otherwise, and maybe it will work for some people even though it didn't for us.
