  • Hang and reuse. I wash the towels once a week. Unless for some reason it's extremely dirty.

  • I hang up the one I used for my hair and reuse that one. As for the I used to dry myself with, it goes in the laundry right after use- I don't like the thought of others in the home wiping their faces with a towel that used to wipe an ass crack.

  • I reuse it once, after that it becomes my new "bath mat" until it's time to wash the laundry

  • hang and reuse, after a shower you are clean, yes? why waste money cleaning a clean towel. After a week I wash them all.

  • we re-use towels... I wash them once a week unless they start smelling musty before that... I usually have to wash them more often in the summer when its humid because the towels don't dry out as thoroughly.
    Everyone has their own towel and their own towel hook so that no one gets theirs mixed up

  • Hang and reuse ... it's just wet at that point, not dirty if you're using it to dry off after a shower.

  • I hang them over the shower (mine) & tub (Hubbys) to dry and use them 3 days max & then they go into the wash. Unless I get makeup on them & I wash them sooner. New Face cloths every day.

  • I hang up my towel and reuse it until it gets dirty, smelly or I'm doing a load of towels, whichever comes first.
