Oh so ver­sa­tile vinyl

Nina Zee­man of Ceres writes The wa­ter on our farm is so iron-rich that our shower glass is per­ma­nently dull; I’ve tried every­thing to no avail. Could I stick pretty vinyl tiles like those fea­tured in your mag­a­zine on the out­side of the shower door?

Heidi van der Westhuizen of Heidi J De­sign replies My vinyl tiles are wa­ter­proof and they’ll stay on as long as you ap­ply them on a smooth sur­face. They work beau­ti­fully on tiles and glass, so this is the ideal so­lu­tion for you. I have of­ten used the vinyl tiles in moist ar­eas such as on splash­backs above basins, and they last. They will def­i­nitely work on a glass shower door too.

Stick the tiles on the out­side of the shower glass. Mois­ten the glass first, then stick on the self-ad­he­sive tiles and smooth out any bub­bles. The white back­ing of the vinyl tiles will be vis­i­ble from the in­side. >>
