I'm not a big fan of gear. I don't like paraphernalia, stuff, or anything complicated. That goes for curtains.
Shower curtains are always a pain. The rings are hard to snap open and shut. You have to either each way up or you have to stand on a slippery tub edge to get them open. (I'm short). Recently I found a few open type rings in the bottom of my junk drawer and so I got rid of a few of the snap-closed rings but I still had some, and that meant every time I wanted to wash the liner I had to struggle to get these opened.
But then at the Dollar Store I found a wonderful invention. It's about time! It is an open ring with a hook on both sides! I can hang the outer sheer outside the tub and the liner inside, on the same ring. I can put the liner on and remove it easily when I want to wash it. The shower ring looks like the logo from That Girl (a 1960s television show), except the ring is clear and not black
As a bonus, it turns out that these particular rings slide very easily! It is a pleasure when the things that are supposed to enhance your life (no matter how small) actually enhance your life.
I'm tickled at the unexpected pleasure of a small thing working well.
