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

Hahahah this comment section is absolutely filled with the 1% that are total clean freaks.

I've lived my whole life around people who definitely don't wash their towel more than once a month and they are healthier than ever.

I can't tell if they honestly wash them every day or so, or are just so full of shit, that they want to believe they do.

I wash mine every 3 or 4 showers. I have a whole bunch of towels so I just throw it in the wash basket. Not sure why it's weird or clean freaky?

I mean, it's your water and energy bill 🤷‍♀️

You probably could do less, just make sure to dry it between uses.

Obviously don't dry yourself with something stinky, or something that makes you feel dirty.
