I purchased this item prior to reading the reviews. As many have stated, the item is dirty. I don't understand how that happens on a waterproof shower curtain, and sent out to the masses. I also followed up & read the reviews for the same product (a few dollars more) on Target's website. The same negative feedback - the item is dirty/stained. With so many buyers reporting the same problem, I don't understand why the product is still being sold, not discontinued, or recalled, & buyer's monies not automatically refunded. Dirt/stains are never acceptable. I ask that Wal-mart tighten up on quality control, & follow up with multiple negative reviews stating the same problem - dirt/stains. Overall, I have been pleased with my purchases from Wal-Mart, however, there have been recent orders that do not come up to par. Sad. Additionally, some items have arrived in oversized packaging, with rolls & rolls of cumpled up paper. It leaves a huge footprint, and creates multiple trips to the dumpster. Hoping to see improvements.
