Tuesday's Tip: Shower Curtain

If you own a shower curtain, chances are you've ripped through at least one flimsy plastic "grommet" in your shower curtain liner.  And while these are fairly inexpensive to replace, and for a few extra dollars you can buy a "heavy duty" liner with metal grommets, for a quick fix, you can just follow this week's tip.

Cover the rip and grommet on both sides of the liner with tape--I used clear packaging tape, but Duck Tape* in a matching color would be more durable.  Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the tape, over the grommet hole.  That's it!  You're done.  My repair, with packaging tape, lasted for several months.

Sorry, no pictures today.  The lighting is, shall we say, less than ideal where our shower curtain is hanging, and I wasn't about to take that thing down just for this.  You're pretty smart--I'm sure you can figure it out.

* Yes, that is Duck Tape, not duct tape.  They've got all sorts of colors, including leopard print and tie dye.
