Shower curtain liners can extend the life of your shower curtains by several months. Connecting shower curtain liners for larger showers is easy especially if your curtain rods are already in place. Some types of curtain liners come with hooks and magnets that can be easily attached to the curtain rod so you can do the job in just a matter of minutes. On the other hand, some types of curtain liners come with rings and hooks which need to be strung to the curtain rod which is quite challenging to install.
Connecting Liners with Rings
The most challenging types of liners to install in your bathroom are those that come with pre-installed or sewed-in rings instead of magnets or hooks. To install these types of curtain liners, you need to take down your curtain rod first. To this, unscrew one end of the shower curtain rod then thread the curtain liner rings into the rod. After threading all the rings into the rod, replace the rod in its socket. Pull the rings apart to spread the curtain liners around your shower.
If you have a fairly large shower and one sheet of shower liner is not enough to cover the whole area, you may add another sheet of shower liner. To do this, simply thread the rings of the second sheet of shower liner into the rod then put the rings apart to spread the curtain liner around the shower. To close the gap between the two sheets, you may sew the edges together or use a shower clip to connect the edges of the liner.
Connecting Liners with Hooks
If your shower liners come with hooks that can be clipped directly to the rod, thread the shower liner and curtain on the hooks first before you clip the hooks to the rod. To do this, lay the shower curtain wrong side up on the floor then put the shower liner over it. Make sure that the holes on top of the curtain liner and the curtain are aligned against each other to make it easier for you to thread the hooks through them. When threading the hooks to your curtain and liners, thread the hooks on the curtain first before the liner so that the liner with be facing inside the shower. If you are using decorative hooks to hand your curtain and shower liner, make sure that the decorative side of the hook faces outside of the shower.
Some shower liners have weights and magnets at the bottom so they tend to hang straight. The magnet at the bottom part of the shower liner can be attached to the tub to prevent water from spilling unto your bathroom floor. Other types of shower liners do not have weights on them so they tend to hang limp over your shower curtain. To make sure that your shower curtain is protected, align the shower liner with your curtains and make sure that the two fit perfectly against each other.
