These shower curtains are a big improvement over the usual PVC liners you find out there. They are soft and dry quickly after a shower. Than can be used as a curtain by themselves; or like a liner. They are machine washable; which is a BIG bonus over disposable plastic liners. There is also no chemical smell to contend with. I love the fact that they came in a bonus 2 pack so that I could change both my shower liners for one low price. They ae a very clean, bright white color. I am thrilled with my purchase!!
