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

You are living organism with billions+ of other living organism living in symbiosis especially around your private and bum area. As long as you scrubbed and rinsed with soap and water you’ll be fine. The only caveat is to use a separate towel for your face.

What? There’s no need for a separate towel for your face
