    DIY: Easy Fix for Falling Shower Rod 

    I decided to take down the shower tension rod while painting my bathroom yesterday since I was trying to avoid getting paint all over the curtain. I did not realize that taking that rod down would create a bigger problem for me! I hung the shower curtain back up once I completed my painting job and moved on to the next room. BANG, CLASH, dogs running for their lives while I darn near had a heart attack from the chaos. I decided to try to hang it up again, and again while making sure to tighten it up even more each time. I did not win this battle and my dogs now need therapy (poor guys).

    After several hours of frustration, I finally came up with an EASY and CHEAP Fix for the Falling Shower Rod!!!

    Easy Fix Falling Shower Rod:

    • Buy a small package of 1″ Self Adhesive Felt Pads- (48 ct. sells for $3 at Big Lots)
    • Peel of the backing and stick one on either sides of the tile wall where your rod will go
    • Have the rubber ends of your rod go to each felt pad
    • Tighten your rod and enjoy the silence

    *Your pets will love you for it 🙂

    1. I LOVED your hilarious description of the falling shower curtain. It is SOOoooo true! And, yes, my dog needs therapy as well!
      Well written.

    2. I just moved to a rented flat, where the whole bathroom is covered with new tiles and the curtain rod kept falling off because of the humidity every time I took a shower. I tried readjusting it hundreds of times – didn’t work. I tried your trick – I bought the adhesive furniture pads and pressed them against the wall with the shower rod – it hasn’t fallen off since. Thank you very much for the effective and cheap advice!
