Shower Curtain Liner FAQs
Do I need a shower liner?
If you take showers and don’t have a water-tight shower door, you need a shower liner. Any shower liner can be used without an outer shower curtain to keep water/spray from escaping the tub/shower area. If you have a shower curtain, a liner also helps to protect the curtain. Close question.
When is it time to replace my shower liner?
How many shower curtain rings do I need?
Most of our shower curtain liners have 12 grommets with exception of our shower stall liners, which have 8 . All of our shower curtain rings and hooks come 12 to a pack. This is a well-established grommet count, and our shower liners are compatible with the majority of ring or hook sets you can buy in the United States. Close question.
Will my shower liner smell right out of the package? What is that smell, and how do I get rid of it?
Our shower curtain liners are made of PE, PEVA, polyester or microfiber, which are odorless. When shower curtain liners smell, they are often made of PVC. SlipX Solutions® does not make any PVC shower liners. Any shower liner may develop a smell if it’s not cleaned regularly. Should your shower liner develop an odor, we recommend hand washing it in cool water then letting it air dry. Close question.
What are magnetic weights? Why do they matter?
Magnetic weights help hold your shower liner in place flush against your tub. Their weight helps prevent the shower liner from billowing towards you in the shower and most important, they help keep water inside the shower! Unless you have a cast iron tub, magnetic weights won’t “stick,” but their weight is what’s important and most functional. Even if you don’t have a traditional cast iron tub, our magnetic weights still do a great job of holding your liner in place by pressing liner material against your wet tub surface where the water forms a temporary bond.

What is a reinforced top hem? Why does it matter?
A reinforced top hem is a sign of shower curtain liner quality. It provides added structure and strength to the connection point between your shower hooks, your liner, and your shower rod, extending the life of the liner. Close question.
Is my SlipX Solutions shower liner washable?
Yes! We recommend hand washing all of our shower liners in cool water with a mild soap then hanging them to dry. This will extend the useful life of your liner and keep it looking great! We recommend against machine washing your shower liner or placing it in the dryer. Read more care instructions.
What is Microban®?
Microban antimicrobial product protection inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew. On an unprotected surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. Microban protection works continuously to keep the shower liner cleaner, longer. Microban is a registered trademark of Microban Products Company. Close question.
