Help! I'm using a tension rod for my shower curtain between tile walls and it keeps falling down. I'm using the lightest shower curtain I can find. Any suggestions on how to keep it in place without drilling holes in the tiles for a permanent rod?

You can usually adjust the length of a shower curtain tension rod by twisting the two sides of it in opposite directions.
Give it a try.
Good Luck!

Quick fix for shower rod slipping on tile

I had the same problem when I got my old tile replaced with new porcelain tile. It looked great but the shower curtain kept slipping. I found an easy fix.

Purchase some "bath/shower No Slip Shapes" - I found them at my local big box hardware store. I bought the round ones and stuck one on each wall where the shower curtain goes. I reinstalled the tension rod and it doesn't slip anymore. Under $5.00 and only a minute fix.
