Do you re-use your bath towels?

Got into a discussion with a few people yesterday about bath towels. Some were the type of people who after their shower in the morning would hang up their towel and use it the next day (or even for a few days that week) THEN throw it in the wash. Then there were the type of people who after their shower the would throw their towel in the wash after just that one use.

What type of person are you?

1--Figure, hey I just got out of the shower, I'm clean so why not re-use it. Plus it saves on laundry.

OR

2--That's gross, I wash it after one use.

We use about 2 towels per week each. In my single days, I used to only use 1 per day, but it's not very economical for a family of 4.

Same here as well. I can't imagine the amount of laundry I'd need to do with 4 people taking at least 1 shower every day in my house, and quite often 2 showers what with swimming several times a week/DH playing football a couple of times a week etc!

Absolutely. I do enough laundry already with 5 people in the house. If I had to wash towels everyday as well, I'd be doing laundry 24/7 - and my water bill would be sky-high!!

Same here. Plus, I can't imagine doing all that laundry. Of course it is just DH and I at our house and I only do laundry once a week, but several loads on that one day.

I grew up in a house that we all used 2 towels...new towels...each shower. That was a LOT of laundry!

When I got out on my own, that changed Now, we all use our towels for at least 3 showers. The boys hang theirs on their bedroom doors, DH hangs his on the bathroom door, and mine will usually go over my banister or over the shower rod.

Same here. As long as it dries everyday, not a problem.

Same here too! I don't understand washing towels that often, you're clean when you use it.
