What do you do with your towels?

Me and hubby have debated this for years. When you are done a towel after your bath do you put it in the hamper and get a new one everytime, or do you hang it up and reuse it a few time?

  • I always put it in the hamper to have it washed. even though you are clean when you come out of the bath/shower, we all know...... it's just ya know have to have a clean laundered towel to dry off with. :)

  • We hang them to dry & each use our own towel for about two-three showers then they go in the wash. After all, when you come out of the shower, you are clean right? Face cloths are only used once & washed.

  • I have to have a clean towel everytime. I can't reuse a towel for some reason it makes me feel dirty so I get a clean one!

  • I hang it up to reuse. The alternate is so wasteful, it would make me feel dirty.

  • Since we have a W&D ... bath towel is put in the hamper, hair towel is used a few times. Depending on how wet the floor towel is, it will be used a few times.

  • It depends. Normally I will hang it up and use one more time. If someone happens to not be feeling well, then it goes in the laundry and a new towel is used next time.

  • I hang it to dry and use it again. It isn't like I am dirty when I use it, I am just fresh out of the shower. And even if I know that I am done using the towel and will be getting a new one, I hang it to dry before putting it in the hamper. The wet towel in the hamper will get musty.

  • I use a robe and use it a few times between washes. My hubby uses his towels 2-3 times. My girls also use theirs more than once. It just seems wasteful.
