@cloudel – I know how you feel. I feel that way about shower curtains. If they are too long, they get in the way and grow mildew.
When I bought my first shower curtain, I was under the impression that there was only one standard shower curtain size. So, I bought the first one that I liked, and it was a few inches too long.
I wrestled with that thing! It was nearly impossible to arrange it so it could dry out and so the tub could dry, too.
I finally wound up cutting a few inches off. Now, when the air comes on and I'm in the shower, it blows the curtain into my legs. I'm sick of it, and I'm going to get the correct measurement and buy a new one!
