Would you ever use a towel more than once before washing it?

  • probably three times i think. I wash whites twice a weeks, maybe three times, and all my towels are white so i can bleach them

  • If it's a towel I've used to wrap my hair in after its washed, I'll reuse it. Otherwise it gets washed every time.

  • no more than twice. I'm the cleanest I'll be all day, after I step out... but I really love the feel & smell of a fresh towel!

  • We use towels more than once. How many times depends on how many showers are taken in a week. We probably use towels more than most people, but hey, you're drying clean water off a clean body, you're not getting dirty so I see no point in washing them more often - they don't stink either so why? I have enough other laundry with 6 people in this house, lol!

  • I wash towels after every use. I don't like to reuse any towels. I do a load of laundry every day and the towels get washed with everything else.

  • We use ours more than once. I don't like washing them down the drain. Every time you wast and dry your towels, you send a little of them away. I get clean. I reuse my towels. I don't share my towel though.

  • I wash mine once a week. You are clean when you get out of the shower why would you wash something that is clean. Do you wash your sheets everymorning. That is alot grosser to think what is on you when you go to bed and sweat and dead skin in the bed. So why wash your towels so much. I dont have time with three kids and a full time job. So if you do more power to ya.
