Wash after every shower. My dd has severe eczema so we do sheets every other, blankets every other and pj's every day. Our family of 5 does about 15 loads a week. I wish I had 2 washers and dryers.

Nope, fresh towel every time. All four of us use a new one after each shower. Actually, I use 2 new towels every time I wash my hair, which is every other day.

I wash towels every other day.

Clean pajamas EVERY night here!
Towels get used twice before I grab a new one (so it may only last one day if I shower twice).

This.

The environmental impact of washing towels after one use would bother me greatly.

We use towels for a few days before washing.
We sleep on sheets for a week or so before washing.

Clothing depends on how long I've worn it. If I throw on a sweatshirt in the evening because I'm a little chillly & wear it for a couple of hours, I probably wouldn't wash it until after another wearing or two. Clothing I've worn all day goes to the hamper when I take it off.

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.

Reuse

Hang up to dry. We have our own location so we know which is our towel. I use two. One is for my hair and face and the other for my body.

If the did not dry between showers we would not reuse them.

I was just coming here to post that I do the exact same thing. One towel for my face and hair and the other for my body. I reuse them probably for about a week.

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.
