Q: Hi Apartment Therapy! Every few days, the tension rod holding my shower curtain up was falling down. After a while, I figured the springs must have been wearing out so I purchased a new tension rod. This one stayed up for about a day and now it won't stay put for longer than a couple of minutes. The walls are tile and it's a rental, so I can't drill into them. Any ideas on how to make the rod stay up long enough for me a take a shower? -Sent by Becky

Editor: That is the saddest photo of a shower curtain that I have ever seen. Readers, please help Becky find a way to make the rod stay up long enough to take a shower, for crying out loud!
