That's the thing: both solutions are fine if handled properly, and both are gross if not handled properly. The question is how much time you want to spend keeping them looking nice and fresh and pretty?
A nice clear trackless tempered glass door is incredibly elegant, but IF and ONLY IF it's sparkling clean. If that wax idea works, great. If not, after every single shower
(how many showering souls in your family?) you have to wipe the entire area dry to prevent water spots. The thrill of that should wear off real
At least with a curtain water spots aren't an issue and the after-shower routine is basically just shake it a bit and stretch it out on the rod to dry. If you have the type with a liner, you can replace the liner every couple of months or as frequently as it grosses you out because they're dirt cheap. If you have the single fabric type of curtain, you just wash them and they're fresh and clean again. What could be easier?
Plus, something that may not apply to you in the States, we have bathrooms tiled from floor to ceiling all around, so the fabric of a curtain adds a much-needed bit of softness into the room.
