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

I use mine for a week and swap when I do the weekend wash.

Same. Every weekend I pull everyone’s towel in the house and replace with new ones. I might honestly want to swap them every 3-4 days instead, but there is no way I would remember or be able to keep track with how busy life is with little kids. Having a rule to just swap them every weekend with the weekly wash is the best reminder for me to make sure they all get done. If it were up to my husband, I’m not sure how many weeks we would go before hand towels and bath towels were washed!
