AbstractA bathtub shower curtain assembly includes a supporting frame structure designed to replace conventional shower door or curtain constructions associated with a bathtub. One end of the frame structure includes a vertically positioned case in which a rolled, retractable shower curtain is mounted, while a leading edge of the curtain extends outwardly from the case with a handle being attached to a midportion of the extending edge. Top and bottom edges of the curtain are retained in guide tracks forming a part of the supporting structure, so that the curtain may be drawn across the bathtub to form an enclosure in the manner of a conventional shower curtain. When not in use, the shower curtain may be retracted into the case in a manner similar to a window shade, while wipers are provided on opposite sides of the case opening to remove water and dirt from the curtain during its retraction.
