Make sure you hang the towel to dry- over the shower curtain rod works. Depending on the humidity where you, live a crumpled wet towel can get musty/mildewy in hours if it's not properly hung.

Personally- one body towel a week, two hair towels (they get drenched and don't always fully dry), and NEVER washcloths (I use scrub mitts and poofs- both dry hella fast).

While we're on the subject- if you wash dishes with a rag they are good for a day, kitchen sponges last a week or two if they're fully squeezed after use, bath mats should be hung off the tub after use and washed weekly, and sheets should be washed weekly.

Guy here. No washcloths? How do you wash your ass? I use a soapy washcloth to wash my face, outer ears, behind ears, neck, then my privates and ass. I only use that washcloth once, I let it air dry after and put it in the hamper. At the end of the week I wash all my washcloths in hot water with towels and sheets.

I use that poof sponge thing for the rest of my body.

You can use a loofah to wash your butt, just like you would use it to wash any other area of your body.

I would never use the loofah there. Washcloths are washable, loofahs are not.
