Promising Review: “So far this has far exceeded my expectations. We have a wall that can’t hold a traditional towel rack because the stud is in the middle of the wall the other two are too far apart. While the poles that hold the towels are a bit short, any longer and I don’t think it would be so sturdy, and it is very sturdy as it is. Not cheap at all. I would recommend this product!” — LB MCA

Promising Review: “I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past 6 years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your “stuff”, this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like 4-5 of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. I usually change it every 6 months because it does start getting a little soap scummy on the bottom. The best shower curtain/liner money can buy!” — DAtkins

Promising Review: “Our bathroom is small and we don’t have much storage space. We used to have the pack of six rolls sitting on the floor. Now, we can fit up to four rolls in the holder (half of the top one is in, half is out). It has a chrome finish; we’ve only had it for a few weeks, so I don’t know how the finish will hold up long term in a bathroom’s often damp environment. Otherwise, we’re happy with the purchase and recommend this toilet paper holder..” — Chalaca68
