I buy a lot of great quality household items from my local Wilko. They are usually well made and represent excellent value for money but don’t break the bank at the same time.
When my husband managed to wreck our old shower curtain last year by slipping in the bath and grabbing hold of it, I had to resort to looking for a new one. He brought down not only the shower rail and fittings, but he managed to rip the PVC shower curtain into half, almost. Once I’d checked he was okay and no damage was done, and then I’d given him a telling off about not using the bath mat, I went out to look for a new replacement shower curtain. All I wanted was a simple, plain white curtain, much like my old one. I was shocked by how much they cost – even Asda’s cheapest was almost £10.
I managed to find a great one for only £3 from Wilko. This shower curtain only came in white and there was no choice of colours to choose from. As it was white I wanted though, this was fine by me. The shower curtain is nice and large and measures 183cm x 183cm square. It came with all the little reinforced holes across the top from which to hang it, and it also included 20 plastic shower hooks.
Putting it up was simple, quick and easy and once the terrible plastic smell had subsided and the heat of the shower had made all the creases drop out, it looked great. Very fresh and clean.
This shower curtain is made from a material called polyvinylchloride and unfortunately it isn’t machine washable. This is possibly the only downside for me, as I really like to give my shower curtains a good old wash every now and again to avoid the build up of mould. However, nothing has stopped me from spraying anti-mould spray over it and then gently hosing it down with the shower hose. The result is that almost one year later, my shower curtain looks and smells as clean and fresh and new as it did on the day I bought it.
Without a doubt, this shower curtain has been excellent value for money. It was certainly worth the £3 I paid for it and I really do recommend it if you are looking for a nice cheap, plain white curtain for the shower. It’s nothing fancy but it does a smashing job.
My bathroom is quite plain and the white shower curtains I normally use add to the plain feeling. Shower curtains can be so cheap so instead of washing shower curtains I tend to just go out and buy a new curtain to replace the old one when it starts to look a little used and run down. The shower curtain I'm using at the moment is this one from Wilkinsons.
The shower curtain is available to purchase from Wilkinson, either in store or online but a delivery charge will apply. The shower curtain retails at only £3.
This shower curtain is wilko's own brand, it isn't the value brand but the next one up. It comes in a few different colours, blue, green and the normal white. I have this in the plain white colour. It came packaged inside a transparent plastic bag so you can see exactly what colour you are getting.
The curtain itself measures approximately 180 centimetres x 180 centimetres. Mine goes on the curtain pole along the top of my bath and hangs at a nice length, it goes right into the bath so you don't have to worry about water getting out when you are in the shower. The curtain pulls right the way across the bath with a little gap at one end but that is no trouble for me as I don't use the whole bath to have a shower. The curtain has holes in the top so you need some curtain rings to hang it up, it's worth noting that these don't come included so if you don't already have some you'll have to purchase these also.
The material of the shower curtain is totally waterproof and in the 6 or so months I've been using it I haven't experienced any problems of water escaping into the bathroom at all. In this time there have also been no wear or tear to the curtain and it's still in a fantastic condition. If I get shower gel or hair products on the curtain I simply use the shower head to spray it off and there is no trace left.
I'd definitely recommend this shower curtain from Wilkinsons. Not only is it cheap but it is made to a good standard. Ours has lasted 6 months so far and has still got loads of life left.
A couple of months back we were looking for a new shower curtain. The one we used to have was beginning to look a bit old and tired so we decided it was time to buy a new one. We knew we wanted a blue one to match the rest of our bathroom and as money is a bit tight at the moment we were looking for one that would be relatively cheap.
After looking in Asda, Argos and Tesco I decided to have a look in Wilkinsons. There I found this shower curtain for just £3. At this price I thought it was a bargain so snapped it up immediately, after all if it only lasted a couple of months it wouldnt be too much money lost.
The shower curtain comes in various colours including white and green. You can also buy them with various designs on such as mosaic, pebbles and a barcode design. These vary in price from £4 - £6.
The shower curtain is made from PVC and it measures 180cm x 180cm. I think this is the regular size of a shower curtain and therefore should fit most showers. We have ours fitted on a shower which is almost the same size as a normal bath and there is plenty more of the fabric when it is pulled out so it should fit a shower over the bath fine.
The curtain was really easy to put up, you simply hook the curtain onto the hooks on the shower roll using the holes in the curtain. We already had hooks up but it is worth noting if you dont have any hooks then you will need to buy some as they do not come with the curtain.
We have been using this shower curtain a couple of months now. It has performed well and is good as new. It keeps all of the water in the shower and we never have a problem with any water on the floor. It still looks very good and does not have any dried on water marks or anything. The colour is the same as when we got it so it has not faded at all.
I think this shower curtain is great value for money. There aren't too many colours available but it is great if you can get it in a colour that suits your bathroom. It keeps all of the water in the shower and still looks like new with no water marks. Recommended.
