3 or 4 uses for a bath towel.

As a teen I used a new towel each shower. While in college where we had to PAY to do laundry, I suddenly found it unnecessary to use so many towels.

Washing linens once a week is enough for me. I already do on average 1 load a day for 4 people.

We use ours for a week, sometimes less, and I can see how towel compatibility would be problematic. I would be totally fine with my DH using a fresh towel for every shower--IF HE did the laundry. Or even just his towels. But truth be told, he'd probably use the same towel until it disintegrated in a pile of Egyptian cotton dust if I didn't change it out every week. And even then he'd probably resist spending money on new towels . We still use the towels we received as wedding presents...10 years ago!!!

I don't know why I read threads like this as they totally ick me out.

I use 2 towels per shower. ! towel is used for my hair only. I hang that up and re use it the next time for my body. The body towel is NOT going to be re used ever. Yes, my body is clean when I get out of the shower but I am also drying certain parts of my body as well. Same reason as I get a fresh pair of panties daily.

As for sheets, I actually change sheets 2-3 times a week.

We use bath towels 2 or 3 times before they get washed. They hang to dry each time after they are used. I change the hand towels every day (we all use those) and dish towels also get changed daily.

Panties get worn for a full day, and get dirty the same as clothes. When you just get out of the shower, how dirty do you think your bits could possibly be? Or maybe you're using your towel much differently than me down there! Quickly drying off is not the same as not changing your underpants!

We each use two towels a week, sheets are done once a week, and jammies get worn two or three times.

Growing up, there were 2 towels for everyone to use and they were washed maybe weekly. It grossed me out! When I moved on my own, I used a new towel everyday. But that ended quickly when I had to pay for laundry at the laundromat!

DH and I both change towels 1-2 times a week. DD uses 2 towels a week, one for each shower she takes. DSSs use 1 towel for the weekend they're here.

Sheets are changed every week to every other week (except boys, theirs are done monthly because they only sleep on them 6 nights a month).

We have one load of sheets/towels to wash per week. This includes hand, body and dish towels and the few washclothes used during the week.

PJs are changed 1-2 times a week.

I wear my work slacks twice and jeans 2-3 times.

We only use towels once. For some reason in this house and the last one we lived in, stuff will sour if you hang it up inside the house.
