  • We do both, Fabric for decoration on the outside and a cheap vinyl curtain on the inside to protect the fabric one. Once the vinyl one gets nasty we just replace it.

  • we bought a new shower curtain that is fabric, but does not need a liner. It's SUPER easy to take on & off the curtain rod. PLUS, you can just take it off & throw it in the wash. No need to buy a new one. It feels & looks like cloth, but the water does not soak through. Weird...but cool! Before this, we always had cloth w/ a vinyl liner.

  • We just have vinyl with a fun pattern in the kids bathrooms. In the master bath and guest bath we have a cloth outer one and vinyl inside.

  • Fabric, outer and vinyl inner. Previous to this last move, we've always had doors.

  • We have shower doors and don't use curtains, but in other places I have lived, we always used vinyl curtains on the inside and fabric decorative curtains on the outside.

  • Fabric outer decorative and vinyl inner.

  • Right now, I am just using the vinyl, but I love going with both. I plan on re decorating my bathroom after the holidays, and it is always nice to have the fabric outer and vinyl inner shower curtain.
