Given how much time we (hopefully) spend in the shower and how taken-for-granted it is as a (hopefully) daily ritual, it's easy to overlook how, well, gross it can get. If you’re someone like me who’s used to buying cheap shower liners that quickly get moldy and thrown into the trash (and then, unfortunately, our landfills), look no further than Amazon’s No. 1 bestselling Liba shower liner. It’s mold- and mildew-resistant, eco-friendly and now costs a mere $12 (down from $17).
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
That durability and mold/mildew protection means that your Liba liner will last way longer than the two or three months than cheapo dollar-store varieties. FYI: It runs a little large, but that helps water from splashing out of the tub.
Don’t just take my word for it, though. This curtain liner has developed a massive following on Amazon — massive as in more than 139,000 five-star reviewers.
“You shouldn’t be disgusted when you take a shower,” said one smart shopper. “My previous shower curtain was disgusting. I allowed it to accumulate mildew and soap film until it was physically revolting to take a shower. I shower daily (sometimes more than once), and after several weeks the LIBA is just as clear, clean and fresh as the day it was hung. Plus, I love that it's totally clear and lets the bathroom light in. Talk about illuminating!”
"This is a win, win, win: looks good, water-repellent, easy to clean..." gushed another, who added, "This curtain has heft to keep from flowing upward from outside air currents." Don't you hate when that happens?
We'll save the best and most beautifully simple testimonial for last. "Perfect!" said this devotee. "Love it."
A man has been found guilty of drugging two men and sexually assaulting them at a house in Oxfordshire.

Hydrogen and electric-powered lorry's will be mass produced in the UK by an Essex-based firm. Tevva, based in Thurrock, has added a hydrogen fuel cell system to its battery-electric HGV design and according to the start-up the 7.5-tonne truck can be driven for up to 310 miles (500km). Hydrogen is more expensive and harder to obtain than electricity and Mr Bennett said the new lorry's main fuel will continue to be its electric-powered battery, which is recharged overnight.
The Vatican has said it has completed the sale of the luxury London building at the centre of an ongoing corruption trial - after taking an estimated hit of around £120m (€140m). In a statement issued on Friday, the Vatican said the building was sold for £186m to Boston-based private investment firm Bain Capital. The statement said that losses were covered by Vatican reserve funds, and stressed that donations from the faithful in a papal fund known as Peter's Pence had not been used.
