  • I will use a towel usually about 3 times. I mean, you're clean after all when you use it.

  • UGH this is a huge discussion in my family.. my mom can use a towel more than once.. that makes me yack! My hubby used to use the same towel until we got we cant do it.. It totally grosses me out.. I know that we are clean when we get out of the shower but there are a few yuck factors I cant get past... when you dry off.. even if you exfoliate.. "skin bits" I call em are coming off on the towel.. they dry along with the towel and then you rub them back on your body the next time you use the towel..ick Then what is the last thing you dry?... even if its your feet.. whats the first thing you dry?.. usually the face is in the top 2.. i dont want feet, butt, (or whatever is dried last) residue on my face?..ick. I think whatever works for others is great for them.. but for my household.. we use a towel once. I just cant get past the thought of crusty skin bits in the towel.

  • LOL, what's so gross if you clean yourself. It's gross if it's somebody elses towel. I will use mine 2-3 times.

  • I usually do about 2-3 times. If I am lucky, but most of the time we spill something and it is the towel hung up in the bathroom that gets grabbed to clean it up, no one wants to use it again after it's cleaned up milk! And huby will sometimes grab my towel and use it, but I cant do that, using it again when it has only touched myself is one thing, but after someone else has used it is another thing. Gross.

  • ONCE! I can't use a towel more than once. And I am not a clean freak but I have different towels for my face and hair then for my body.
