  1. lol this always happened at my moms house when we were little, having the vent fan on seemed to help. wetting the side of the tub and sorta sticking the shower curtain to it helps sometimes…

    Using a heavy bottle of shampoo on the side of the tub to hold it down sounds like a good idea.. but really its not.. because this bottle of shampoo will fall off and land on your toes! i can almost guarantee it!

  2. There are multiple solutions including:

    -Use of a second curtain, that remains outside of the tub/rim during the shower to block or slow inflowing air.
    -Leaving the curtain partially open with a gap at one or both sides to allows for pressure equalization, decreasing air inflow.
    -Application of heat outside of the shower to minimize buoyancy effects.
    -Lowering of water pressure and/or temperature differential to decrease billowing.
    -Use of a curved shower curtain rod, commonly found in some hotels. -The rod itself has a bend in it to hold the shower curtain out and away from the person.
    -Application of a cloth, soaked in water, along the rim of the bathtub while inside the shower to secure the bottom of the curtain, with cloth saturation (weight) and length corresponding to an increase in effectiveness.
    -Install sliding doors instead.

    Use whichever one is easiest for you.

  4. If the magnets don’t work, how about suction cups? Or…kind of lift up the bottom of the curtain so it “gives” just enough to rest a heavy bottle of shampoo on the curtain on the edge of the tub?
