How often do you switch out your

towel and wash cloth or body puff?

I reuse my bath towel. I get a fresh towel every three days and a new wash cloth everyday.

  • I use the towel for a week at a time. We have a dehumidifer in the bathroom so it sucks the water out. We used to have to change more often since they didn't dry out and would get htat nasty mildewy smell. We're clean when we use them so as long as it doesn't sit piled up on the floor, they are still good for a few days.

  • I use two towels. One for my hair and one for my body. I change my towels differently. The one for my hair gets used four or five times, and the one for my body gets used about twice

  • Wow, I wish the people in my house would reuse their towels. Everyone here gets a new towel and wash cloth every time they shower!

  • I use a fresh washcloth every single day, I usually use a fresh towel too, but sometimes I will use one twice in a row.

  • I only use a towel once then it goes in the laundry (grosses me out to reuse it), but dh will use 2 1-for his hair and 1-for his body. The body towel gets thrown in the laundry, the hair towel is reused for his body and a new towel is used for his hair the next shower.
