Here we go. My first tip.
~Shower curtain liners~
I know, not very exciting, but let me share with you my findings on this subject.
Vinyl vs. Fabric Which is your choice?
My choice is Fabric, by a mile. Not only is this choice the most cost effective, but also environmentally friendly. You can read more here about 'how eco-friendly is your shower curtain'.
Let me do the math for you. So, the fabric liner (shown at the top) is at Target for $9.99 plus tax ($10.66). Of course, if you have a Target debit card, you can get 5% off.
Then we have the vinyl liner, also found at Target. This particular one is selling for $2.34 plus tax ($2.50). Now, here is where the savings come in. If you are using the vinyl liner, you will need to replace this every month due to soap scum, mold, etc., so now we have to multiply $2.50 x 12 = $30.00 (x 2 again if you have 2 bathrooms)
Bottom line, a fabric shower curtain liner will cost you $10.66 per year and the vinyl will cost $30.00. Your savings using a fabric liner is $19.34. Not and extreme amount of money, but I'll take the savings.
Keep in mind, these liners can be found just about any where. I only used Target for an example. And also, the fabric liners will need to be washed about every couple of weeks (depending on how often shower is used). The instructions say to only use non-chlorine bleach, but I use bleach (just a little) and they come out fine. I do, however, was them together with no other clothes or towels.
I hope this first tip didn't bore you too much. We'll see what I come up with next week. HA!
