  • 2 or 3 times. That's the way my mom taught my sisters and I. She said as long as we cleaned ourselves properly in the shower then our towels were clean enough to use multiple times. Cuts down on the amount of laundry too.

  • 2-3 times. I used to believe in 1 time, but then i'd be doing laundry all day every day....and besides, your clean when you come out of the shower right?

  • Mold spores attach themselves to the damp towel as it sits druing in the bathroom,and then you wipe them onto your clean body the next time you use it.Not to mention the fecal matter that sprays out of the toilet when you flush!

  • 2-3. I'm clean when I get out, so there's no need to make more laundry. When I'm on my period though, every day.

  • 2-3 times. I hang mine in the shower, on a rod that I push to the middle of the shower. And close the curtain. Plenty of air gets around it, the ceilings are high, and it's a curved rod, so there's lots of room. LOL, so no fecal matter comes flying out of the toilet and sprays on my towel. I close the lid.
    However, I only use white towels for my body, and I bleach them. I use a colored towel for my hair. All our colored towels are washed on the sanitize cycle anyway.

  • I have a towel for my body and one I only use to wrap my hair in. I'll use my hair towel for like4 days and my body towel 2-3 days. I have to change it more ofter a lot sometimes because they mysteriously end up on the floor!! I think my three year old knows how that happens.
