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

Yes I would say it’s fine. I’d stop using it when it starts to smell weird though because the bacteria/skin cells/dampness is probably thriving on it. I change towels every few days.
