  • Unless you want to rub your face with bacteria, you need to use a fresh towel. It takesvery ltle time for bacteria to grow, especially on things that are damp.

  • what the hell? That adds up to a lot of aundry. Why don't u just use a face cloth for your face and whatever else for your body? U could wash/rinse out the face towel with a antibacterial soap and lay it in a good area so it could dry but a new towel each and every time is a little anal.

  • I use a new one every time. Some people prefer to reuse but not I. It was a habit I picked up from an early age.

  • probably because of the oil and nastiness on it lol

  • i know see, everyone has their own opinion. when i see all the makeup on the towel i figure, hell its done, time for a fresh one. So it's one in the morning, rinse it with antibacterial, and use the same one at night, then get a new one to dry my face, which is the one i use to then wash with the next morning. I have it hang from the shower to dry off but i never know if bf is using to too, so thats why i just get a new one.
