I purchased a shower curtain and liner set about a year and a half ago from Aldi. It was a nice-looking budget set, but when the liner started to tear, it was time to look for a replacement. I kept the shower curtain, which is still in great shape, and I picked up an inexpensive shower liner from Dollar General to replace the torn old liner.
The Comfort Bay Heavy Duty Shower Liner cost $7.25 at the time of publication. This wasn’t the cheapest liner on the shelves at Dollar General. I found some that went for as low as $5. I decided to go with one that wasn’t the cheapest in hopes that it might last a little longer.
Here’s more information about the shower liner:
- Features rust-proof grommets
- Chloride Free
- Fiber content: 100% PEVA
- Dimensions: 70″ W x 72″ L
- Made in China
As mentioned above, this is made of PEVA, or polyethylene vinyl acetate, which is a non-chlorinated vinyl that is a safer alternative to PVC (polyvinyl chloride). PEVA is commonly used in shower curtains and other consumer products such as children’s toys, mattress protectors, shoes, plastic tablecloths, and more. It’s also generally considered safe for shower curtains.
The packaging states this can be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth.
This shower liner is distributed by Old East Main Co., which is a Dollar General private label distributor. Most Dollar General house brand products are distributed by Dolgencorp, while some are distributed by Old East Main Co., but there may not be much difference between the two.
This was easy to hang in my shower using my existing shower curtain rings. It is made of fairly stiff plastic and I was afraid it might look cheap in my shower, but it actually looks okay.
So far, it looks like a decent budget shower liner. It doesn’t have the feel or look or pricier options you might find at other retailers, but it will get the job done. I’ll update this post with any new developments as necessary.
The Comfort Bay Heavy Duty Shower Liner features rust-proof grommets and is chloride free and odor free. It’s made of 100% PEVA, which is a material commonly used in shower curtains. It is easy to hang and, while it’s not the fanciest-looking shower liner, it looks decent in our shower. Time will tell how well it holds up.
