 ok my MIL says that you can use a towel twice to dry off with before you need to wash it. do u do that? she kind of has a good theory. her theory is when you get out of the tub or shower you are clean so you can just dry off hang the towel then use it again before you need to get another one. what do u do do u reruse?

I'll use a towel 3 times before I wash it. I agree with your MIL. When I dry off I am at my CLEANEST point.

I do laundry on Mondays and Thursdays.....that is when we change out our towels.  LOL  Unless, of course someone has pinkeye or if I have a yeast infection...they the affected towels are swapped out daily.

 yes I do reuse towels. I use them at least twice if not 3 times before they go in the wash.

we reuse towels once or twice. just hang it up as soon as your done so it can dry. i see nothing wrong with it.

I wash all rowels once a week, sometimes twice if I am feeling spunky... lol

My DDs baby towels get washed after one use, but only cause I dont have a hook to hang her towel on.. lol

Yeah, I use each towel a few times. I agree with your MIL. You're clean, so it's not like it's getting dirty. Sure, there are probably skin cells that get on it, but they're clean! LOL
