In any case, we dropped that $200.00 or so on that Neo Angle rod only to find that the quality of these new/vintage materials is far, far less than the originals. No surprise there, really, but it left us with a sagging middle on our enormously long rod. Neo angle indeed, as in obtuse rather than right. Since the weight of the sagging middle was slowly pulling the hardware from the walls, we supported the rod with a handy little chain that attaches to a hook and screws into the ceiling. Nifty, right?
Only trouble is, our new system fails the boys' durability test. Now my only hope is to find some way to keep the boys from hanging on that highly tempting ubiquitous shower curtain every night when I send them to brush their teeth. So far, nagging hasn't gotten me the results I need. I'm thinking more along the lines of a repellent spray for the curtain itself. Do you think I could find a broccoli scented room spray? How about quiche?
