Sorry about all the questions.
You can remove the bathroom door and replace it with a large towel on a solid metal tube rod, hung with screws and stainless washers. Use metal clip rings available at fabric stores and many other places. If you use a washed cotton "bath sheet" or beach towel, it's big enough, and there should be no toxicity. Also--probably lighter anyway, can be used to dry yourself (and will then just dry out while hanging), easily removed and washed, etc.
Also--marine grade ply sites we found in Seattle made a point of stating that they no longer use formaldehyde
in their glue formulation. It's not necessarily an industry standard any more--easily checked at each source.
We had our three sheets of 5/8" marine grade plywood drying in our living room for months over last winter before work on our 1973 amerigo
(filled with mold and rot) had progressed to the point where we finally used them...I'm highly sensitive to mold and chemicals, and other than the smell of fresh wood, I experienced NO reactions to those three sheets.
