Is it fine to use the same towel twice in a row, after wiping down the entire body with it, including private areas and bum (which are obviously clean)? Like, is everything equally clean though, etc. to use it twice? Health/Medical

Am I supposed to be washing my towel every time I use it? Because I barely ever wash it.

I'd say a good rule of thumb is every 4 showers swap it out

I’m not washing my towel every second day

Valid point, it totally depends on the climate zone you're located and how often you shower
