Very little re-using of bath towels here. Our super absorbent towels do not dry very well between showers and I cannot stand to use a towel that is even the slightest bit damp.
Not very eco-friendly, I know.

I agree. I do not ever use a towel twice. Blech. I use 2 towels every shower. One for my hair and one for my body. I am not drying my face with a towel that dried my butt no matter how clean it is after a shower. We all (7 of us) use clean towels for every shower. I change sheets a few times a week and also wash the blankets. Fresh pjs every night as well. Yes I have a lot of laundry but I don't mind. I also change the hand towel in the bathroom a few times a day. I hate using a damp towel. I hate the way it feels and it makes me think of germs.

Even if I didn't want a clean towel every shower, where on earth would I hang all those towels up so they actually dry? My house would look like a towel sale at Macys.

Ha! I totally get it, but oh the laundry!
Where do you hang the towels to dry before you wash them? Or do you do a load every day? I live in Fl and I can't imagine letting a week's worth of towels sit in a hamper until laundry day. I must be missing part of the equation.

Nothing sits all week here. Laundry is done every single day. I do multiple loads a day. Usually 3-5 loads. I swear I must have worked laundry in a women's prison in a past life.

I have two sets of towels I use and they get washed once a week.

I change sheets once a week and wash blankets every other week.

Pajamas get worn for 3-4 days in the winter and once in the summer.

We are the same. Everyone has his/her own towel and hangs it up, flat, to dry so it's ready for tomorrow. I can't say how long we use them for- a week or two? DRY "dirty" towels (face cloths, hand towels) go in the towel hamper- nothing wet allowed in there. I wash the towels when the hamper is full. I can't justify the impact on the environment (or my oil bill) that washing towels that are used once would create.

ETA: I am astounded by the number of loads of laundry some of you are doing! It would make me crazier than I already am!!! When DD was home, we did 3 loads of laundry a week: Socks & underwear (also sweats, jammies, DD's dance clothes- which is 5-8 leos and tights, not trivial, etc), shirts/sweaters, and pants/other. We do sheets and towels about once a month; towels are used however long, maybe 2 weeks, and sheets get changed maybe every other week, only DH uses a face cloth (and he hangs it to dry, so maybe 2 a week?), and kitchen towels- only 2 that get changed when needed, like maybe every other week? so for 3 of us that's an additional load or 2 every 4 weeks. I just cannot imagine doing multiple loads of laundry every day! When do you find the time- or the patience?

We use our at least 3 times..

Why the heck not? the water is clean that you dry off with..

They air dry before we shower again the next morning.

What would washing do for it??

/facepalm

2 seconds? Um, I wash those parts better than that and I dry them as well. Still, I would not dry my face with any towel that has dried my parts no matter how clean. YMMV.

I must have been your cell mate and coworker. I do almost as much laundry, my sista. The sheets are on a weekly rotation but otherwise I'm right there with you... including the blankets and two towels for showering.

Don't forget to cover which direction to hang the toilet paper. From the front or from the back? That can cause some strange discussions.

I assume that you do not work outside the home. That is something I would think would be quite a burden to someone that wasn't home all day. But what do I know. And one question...how the heck do you afford your water/electric/gas bill? Seems like that would get pretty expensive.

Dh and I reuse our towels 2 showers. Dd does not because of the fact that the towel touched her privates. Sheets and blankets are every 2 weeks in winter and once a week in summer. I have just recently started wearing my jeans more than one time and then washing.

I cant understand the "touched your privates" angle.

It is CLEAN. IT is your OWN body..

You won't get STD if you use that towel the next day..

It is amazing how repressed folks can be.. Oh that towel was near my #^^$^, it must be scorned and burned at the stake.. Ok or at least thrown away and burned in hot water..

Come on people..
