I purchased a shower tension rod from Wal-mart for $9.88 to hang over the back of the bathtub. It is out of the way and working great. I'm enjoying the extra space for hanging towels to dry.
I had something like this in mind but couldn't quite visualize it in my mind. LG to the rescue and off to Walmart I go.
Thanks for the tip and pictures.
We had two over our tub. Both offered a little bit of touch security when taking showers. Plus we hung the bath mat and the suction cupped mat to dry after showering. The other one, right behind the shower curtain hid the wash cloths and wipe down cloths as well as bringing a bit of touch security on that side of the tub.
I use my second shower rod as a drying rack for items I dont want to put in the dryer.
We have two rods in our main bath. I use them for drying some clothes at times. Especially ones that I thin might shrink, like leggings. I also use it to hang wet towels on. The wash cloths go on the bar that is built in the tub.
