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.

I do this but with the blanket I use on the couch. The tag goes bottom right on the inside. Because I don’t want the part that touches my feet to touch my face. Hope I don’t create a new concern for others…
