Recycling Your Old Shower Pan Liner

If you'll soon be replacing your shower pan liner, it may interest you to learn that there are a number of ways the liner can be recycled. Below are the best ways to get some additional use out of old shower pan liners.

Oil Protection

If you frequently change your own oil and are looking for an effective way to defend your garage floor against oil spills, a recycled shower pan liner is just what you need. Simply place the tarp beneath your vehicle when draining oil to protect the surface from difficult-to-clean oil stains.

Paint Protection

A recycled shower pan liner can be particularly useful in protecting your home from paint drips and spills. So, if you're planning on repainting a certain area of your home, an old liner is the perfect makeshift tarp. What's more, if you have kids who enjoy arts and crafts projects, a recycled liner can protect your floors from even the messiest children.

Shelf Protection

A lesser known method of shower pan liner recycling is using the material to create soft, absorbent shelf liners. After measuring each level of a certain shelf, use a pair of scissors to carefully cut the old pan liner into a number of resilient shelf liners. Take care to thoroughly clean any mold, mildew or soap scum from the pan liner before converting it into shelf liners.
