Aside from the physically immobile or certain old-timey-inclined folk who insist on a bath-only cleanliness regimen, we all take showers — (hopefully) lots of them. It's such a regular part of life that it's easy to forget about the accoutrements of our lather-up, rinse-down routine. When it comes to our shower curtain liner, more often than not we don't think to change it until it tells us it needs to be changed — by a fetid, mildewy smell or the slow, then fast emergence of a gross brownish-gray-green film around its base. Nasty stuff, all of it.
And you almost never have a replacement ready, let alone a durable, mildew-resistant one that you can depend on day in and day out. Well, here's your chance to get ahead of the game, economically: this stalwart funk-shield from the folks at Liba. On sale for just 12 bucks (down from $17), you can afford to buy two or three so that you won't be caught off guard when it's time to switch it out...which will be much further down the road than with most of the flimsy, water-retaining models out there.
This clear, 72" by 72" liner is large enough to accommodate just about any shower setup, its magnetized base ensuring that it stays snug against the side of most tubs. It's made of environmentally agreeable PEVA material with nary a trace of chlorine or PVC, which means you won't get assaulted with a waft of plastic-y odor when you take it out of the package. It is, of course, waterproof and formulated to foster bead formation and quick H2O roll-off (less lingering water = less mildew). A reinforced header and metal grommets ensure that it'll slide smoothly across your rod and stay secure.
We dare say this Liba liner will impress so much that you may decide you don't need a top curtain at all.
With all that going for it, no wonder more than 87,000 Amazon reviewers have bestowed a five-star rating on this curtain. This one admired its Goldilocks-perfect weight: "Not too thick that it's hard to move around and not too thin that it creeps up on you in the shower."
Captain Obvious also sung its praises. "You shouldn't be disgusted when you take a shower," they opined, adding: "I allowed my previous shower curtain to accumulate mildew and soap film until it was physically revolting to take a shower.... A few weeks back I purchased this item, and enthusiastically hung it in my tub...after several weeks the Liba is just as clear, clean and fresh as the day it was hung."
"My husband liked it so much he requested that we use this curtain in the future," said this repeat customer. "It really is anti-bacterial and very easy to rinse off. It has held up well without tearing at hooks. I really like the magnets and how easily this curtain sheds water. Also, there was no gassing off when the curtain is new."

MARSEILLE, France — Having led Marseille back to the Champions League and united the hard-to-please fans behind him, coach Jorge Sampaoli left the team's preseason preparations in tatters when he quit on Friday. After Marseille announced his departure, Sampaoli claimed his objectives were not met by the club — even though there was seemingly no bitterness between him and club president Pablo Longoria. It seemed to be simply a matter of principle since Sampaoli didn't even ask for compensation. “
HONG KONG (AP) — Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived Thursday in Hong Kong to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the British handover of a city that his rule has transformed from a global hub known for its political freedoms to one that is much more tightly controlled by the Communist Party. In a staged event carried live on Chinese TV, students and others lined the platform of a high-speed rail station and packed a red carpet to greet the leader making his first trip outside of mainland China in n
HONG KONG (Reuters) -There is no reason to change Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" formula of governance, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on a rare visit to the global financial hub after swearing in the city's new leader, John Lee, on Friday. Britain returned Hong Kong to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, with Beijing promising wide-ranging autonomy, unfettered individual rights and judicial independence at least until 2047. China's critics accuse authorities of trampling on those freedoms, unavailable on the authoritarian mainland, with a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on the city in 2020 after mass pro-democracy protests the year before.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a blow to the fight against climate change, the Supreme Court on Thursday limited how the nation’s main anti-air pollution law can be used to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.

Premier Tim Houston says his government turned down a proposed joint venture for the Halifax Infirmary redevelopment because the preference was to have multiple bids. "For me, I think any action by the province to immediately consolidate the bids down to one and make it so that there could only ever be one, I don't think that was in the best interest of Nova Scotians," Houston told reporters in Halifax on Thursday. "I didn't think it was at that time and I wouldn't say that it is now." A spokesp

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge said Thursday that he will temporarily block a 15-week ban on abortions in his state, but his bench ruling won't take effect before the ban becomes law Friday — an issue that could cause confusion for patients as well as abortion providers. Meanwhile, a Kentucky judge temporarily blocked that state's near-total ban on abortions, allowing the procedures to resume after they were abruptly stopped when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week.

HALIFAX — The contract-tendering process for a major development of a Halifax hospital will continue despite the fact there is only one bidder left, Nova Scotia’s premier said Wednesday. Tim Houston told reporters that the Halifax Infirmary project remains under “active procurement" after one of two interested parties dropped out. “The qualified bidders knew the process,’ said Houston. “They’ll make their decisions as they go through the process, but the province is committed to seeing that proc
