Shower Curtain Hook Hole Repair Device


"Don’t throw out your favorite shower curtain because of a torn hook hole!"

As if.

People are starting to talk about your crummy shower curtain.

No, not the mildew, everyone's got mildew issues; rather, they're murmuring — and it's getting louder by the day, I can tell you in confidence — about why it is that every time they come by your place and need to use the bathroom, as they pass the shower they notice one more torn shower curtain hook hole up top.

Stop reading this right now — I mean it — and go look at the top of your shower curtain.

Those who happen to be able to see theirs from where they're sitting, well, I don't think I'm gonna go there....

At least, not right this zeptosecond. But I digress.

You will note that there is at least one ripped hole, and probably more than one.

Sure, the shower curtain stays up but how do you think that makes us Martha–types feel when we look up and see the shabby maintenance?

Not comfortable, that's for sure — because who knows what else is sub–par around your place?

I mean, what about those past–dated milk cartons in your fridge?

And the melted lettuce in the vegetable bin?

Oops. Sorry, I know that's not my business but I just couldn't help myself.

Please, forgive me.

Now, where was I?

Oh, yes, your soon–to–be better–than–new shower curtain.

Up to now I've always used a piece of strapping tape, placed over both sides of the hole by folding it over the top of the curtain, as step one in my two–step repair process.

Step two involves a paper punch to create a new hole for the hook.

The reason the repair is better than new is that the strapping tape is far stronger than the original plastic and so will outlast the curtain.

But now comes this nice piece of kit (above) to make my efforts unnecessary.

It's like those little white thingies you used to use to repair or reinforce the holes in your notebook paper in school.

"Strong plastic reinforcements are applied in seconds, last for years and are laundry safe."

$7.95 for a pack of 12 peel–off plastic Curtain Savers here.

No need to scrimp — at this price you can go ahead and put a Curtain Saver on each side of the torn hole.

bookofjoe suggestion: put them in your pocketbook or wallet and the next time you're at a friend's with a torn hole, fix it for them.

But don't tell them.

Good deeds done without receiving credit are the very highest form of personal excellence.
