Good (morning/afternoon/evening) Pit.

Night before last, I stayed at a girls house. She gave me a towel to dry off with after showering in the morning. Last night, stayed at the same place, different towel!

I'm not offended, but I am wondering how many of us use a towel ONCE to dry off with then toss it in the laundry VS. how many use a towel for like a week.

Search'd and only found threads about masturbating and nipple removal :S

At home, I use a new towel everyday [and use the previous day towel as the floor towel for walking on when getting out of the shower].

At University, I only use one towel [as it's the only one I have in that size].

Therefore, I voted for my "At Home" towel usage... as I would do that at Uni if I could...

Now that I'm a lazy student, maybe 2-3 times. I can only do laundry once a week =/

As for rolled up towels, well, that's a different situation.

When I live alone I use it many times before I wash it. When I live at my parents house I use a new one every time.

Umm up to 6 weeks? It's just water people. No need to be wasteful and have to wash them over and over.

Sometime even more than 6 weeks. It's not something I think about.

Normally about a week at uni where it's just me, at home they last about 3-4 days ( I think) with three-four people using them everyday.

each towel gets 4 uses... i figure it only touches me when i'm clean (after a shower) so why not let it go a while...

I developed this in college when i was lazy and only did my laundry every 2 weeks (if not longer)

You used that towel to dry your genitals.
I do not wish to dry my hands/face/own genitals with the same towel without it being sprayed with battery acid and put on a spin cycle lasting at the very least 1 hour at 60 degrees.

If its to dry my whole body off after bath/shower then i use a different one every time, do you really want a soaking wet towel stinking your house out?
I have a seperate towel for drying hands and face after a quick wash.
Edit: also besides the fact that a used towel stinks like buggery, drying yourself with an already damp towel is hardly productive and makes you smell like damp sh*t.

My thoughts exactly!

You've WASHED in the shower, so you just dried off clean water...didn't you? When you dry your dishes do you only use that towel once too?
#14
More than a week, about the time it takes for it to be drenched. I'm not dirty after getting out of a shower, so why should I change them?
Also, sauce on said threads?
#17
As of recent it's been the same towel for 2 days, though it used to be a new one everyday (if I stay at my friends place he usually gives me a towel for however long I'm there for, the longest being a week).
My only problem with using the same more than once, is the towel ends up drying less and less each time, as it's wet itself.
#18
A week. I only shower two times a week at home, the rest of the time I shower at the swimming pool after I finished my training.
#19
like a new 1 every time. if were back in the u.k like 2-3 times but here if you use it an leave it for like 20mins it stinks like ass

Here at uni a week or more. I have no more money to do my laundry and I have 1 clean towel left (I only have 2 towels and 2 hand towels) atm.

At home I'd use a towel for a week then use a clean one.

Alternate between two towels. Two laundry days a week.

Works out to be one every 1.75 days... wait that can't be right.
#24
Once.

Even after it's dried, a wet towel still smells wet. Nothing compared to a fresh towel.

I'm a horrible dirty student. I had two towels but one got jelly on it, and I haven't bothered cleaning it, instead I've left it on my bedroom floor. The one I do use has been washed about 3 or 4 times in the past 8 weeks... it doesn't smell bad or anything, I think it's probably fine.
#28
A couple of days use out of a towel.
Mind you, if a PitMonkey used one, I'd burn it.

well if you have showered then your genitals should be clean
if they arent you obv aint showering properly

between a week and two weeks. depends on how big my washing pile builds up and how much money i have. i am at uni and it costs me a load each time to do washing, so whenever i have space for it. i have spare towels anyway. but its only water. what harm is water. lol. i have a hand towel anyway just to wash my hands

if im at my parents i have 2 smaller towels which will last however long i stay, usually 2-3 days. although 2 smaller ones one for me and one for my hair. lol

There's a certain smell that towels get after about 5-6 uses. As soon as that smell kicks in, I replace the towel.

I can't afford to use a towel once and wash it straight away now I'm at uni! I only have two, so I usually have about a week of using, sometimes a bit more.

until they smell funky

I've used my current one for about 7 weeks without washing and it's fine. I don't understand why they need washing regularly at all to be honest.

why would you wash it after one use? that makes no sense, it's not even dirty

Well maybe she washed it because someone different than her (you) used it and thinks it's nicer to have a clean towel instead of one that's been used by someone else.

I use it over for about a week, unless i forget to hang it up after my shower and it isnt dry by the next day.

A lot of people think that its disgusting, but the way i see it is, if you cleaned yourself properly in the shower, where the hell is the dirt coming from?

I mean, these same people wont use a towel twice, but will wear the same t-shirt/top two days in a row(i dont disagree with that either, its just a lot more disgusting comapred to reusing a towel )

Wait... back the **** up already.

You're meant to wash towels?

I stick mine on the radiator after I've used them so they don't go mouldy/etc, wash them once a term (it's a pretty tight fit in the washing machine anyway, so yeah).
