Clear shower curtain practicality

    Sometimes it's the simple things that make life more comfortable. I recently replaced my less-than-waterproof shower curtain with a cheap one of clear plastic. It's a dollar store shower curtain, so I wasn't expecting much.

    What I found was that the clear shower curtain has several advantages that I'd never considered. It lets in so much more light that I could, if necessary, find the soap and razor in the shower by the light of a Crisco candle. It makes it a lot easier to keep an eye on the bad cats, and to see who is opening the door and letting all my nice steamy warm air out.

    Remember the shower scene from Psycho? It could have turned out differently if Marion Crane had had some bad cats for Norman Bates to trip over, and a clear shower curtain so she could see that he had that big knife. He needed shooting. Of course, she'd shower with her gun within reach. Doesn't everybody?

    If there are kids or company in the house the fancy flowered shower curtain goes up, but when the lights go out it'll be nice to have the clear shower curtain so I have enough light to find the soap before the water runs out. Won't matter much if I'm reduced to bathing out of a wash basin, but I'm sure I can find many uses for a big clear sheet of plastic with grommet holes along one edge. ;)

    I have several toys in my shower. Including an old, .45 in a aloksack, and some of those plastic daggers and spikes. And a rubber ducky wearing sunglasses... don't ask.

    Have saved table "clothes" and shower curtains for years. They make dandy dry covers, ground cloths, ponchos, etc. Like our clear shower curtain--still get a thrill even after 40 years of marriage---snicker.

    I am sure there are at least three ways to kill a man with a rubber ducky....... ;-)

    If I am close enough to force it down his throat, I'm close enough to forget the duck and simply rip out his throat with a stick. The duck is just the distraction....

    You guys are just soooo brutal--lol. Hopefully the "yap dogs" would give enough warning that lead would be waiting on the perp.

    Oh, I prefer lead poisoning, but the question was about the duck....

    They are perfect for lining your trunk area or putting down when hauling plants, bikes and all sorts of dirty greasy things. They are long enough to cover the backs of the seats when you flip them down for larger items.
