Hi
Does it happen to anybody that you are taking a shoer and the shower curtain starts getting closer to you like there is wind from the other side?
anybody knows why?
Thanks!

Hm, i would assume its because the little kid from the Grudge is on the other side. :)

Actually i have no idea, ha.

Maybe the steam building up in the bathroom forcing it closer to the nearest surface?
The wall behind/side you.

it's the temperature differential...the shower air is typically warmer than the rest of the room (or house air) so it rises to the ceiling which pushes colder air down to fill the void left by the hot air rising. that creates wind. it's called convection

this is also the process that causes wind outside....it's warmer somewhere and colder somewhere else so the air has to move around to fill the gaps
