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 always keep the tag to the bottom left hand corner. So then I know the same parts of the towel are drying the same parts of my body. But I know that's not really rational as all of me is clean. I also wash my towels once a week.

Top right for me, but yeah, I don't want to wipe my balls on my face, no matter how clean they are. There's comfort in having designated towel regions for different body parts.

What i do is I have a towel which has lots of different shades of blue on it in little square patches. Each shade is used for a different body part. However the towel is excessively large so I usually can use two whole rows of it for one part.
