It never occurred to me to count.

Every so often I look at the towel rack and think, "Those are probably due for a wash about now". And so it comes to pass.

I dry myself with them, not wipe my arse. They get damp, not dirty.
Thank the fucking gods, someone with some bloody perspective. If you're still dirty after you shower, you aren't showering properly.

I never use a towel more than three times after washing it, same with clothes - no matter what state it's in (for underwear and socks it's of course one day).

1 and done. We own enough towels to be able to use it once, and then wash them all at the end of the week or something.

Once a week, basically with the bed sheets.

I am clean when I come out the shower, I am simply towelling off water, possibly shampoo/conditioner/bodywash residue.

Possible TMI ahead

When I'm on my period, I will get a clean towel once my bleed is finished, even if I just changed towels the day before.

Working in a kitchen I've gotten used to using paper towels to dry my hands at home as well.

At my flat I wash my body towels after every use. Kitchen work has made me a little more paranoid about keeping myself clean.

You need to delineate a side of the towel for your balls and the other side for your face. I always use the tag side for my balls so I can use the other side for my face and not have to worry about getting any wayward pubes on my face

Are you guys ready to rock!?! WE'RE THE WAYWARD PUBES!!!

On topic: I don't actually keep track. I'll say this. If I drop the towel on the floor, then it goes in the hamper. I figure that I'm clean when I dry off, so the towel will be as clean as me when I'm clean. Besides, if any rogue germs form before the towel dries, it'll just help keep my immune system strong. I'm likely completely wrong about that, but I rarely ever become ill so something's working.

I was my towels once a week, and tend to shower 1-2 times a day so...after about 10-11 uses. More if it's hot and I've been sweating a lot.

Do you put your face into your significant others' genitals?

If the answer is yes then why wouldn't you be willing to dry your face with the same towel that you used to dry the rest of your body?
I wouldnt consider my face clean.

Ooooooh boy.

I have my one towel and wash it every month or so.

It never occurred to me to do it more than that. :/

After all, I only ever use it if I'm clean.

Usually I will get 3 or 4 uses out of a single towel before I wash it. Little surprised to see how many only own one towel.

This sums up my feelings towards towels rather well...
I agree with that. I wash my towels once a week. I don't see a reason to do that more often since I use them after I washed myself. It only removes clean water from me, maybe some soap.
Exception are obviously towels I use to clean of sweat when I'm training.

You don't need towels, silly humans. I play dizzy dizzy dinosaurs by myself all naked until I fall over. Gets the job done rather spiffingly and adds to your daily exercise routine!

Well, think of it this way: If someone offered you a Terrible Towel, you can be sure that it was only used for swinging around and cheering the Steelers, and therefore would be safe.

I use the same towel for about a week, unless it's raining, then I change towels every 2 or 3 days. It doesn't get nowhere near wet enough for me to think omg germs this is gross. In addition to that, I leave my towels out in the open and it's pretty hot and windy here, the towel is dry in about 30 minutes.

Here's another question though: How often do you people clean your bathrooms? I saw some pictures of some guy's feet because he showered in a gym somewhere and his feet had these really nasty holes.

I'm more concerned about that suspicious street food I like to eat after handing the money to the vendor guy. I like to think an entire childhood playing in dirty canals and dirty dirt streets covered in mud and gross rain water that's been sitting there for days helped me build a resistance/armor/shield/force field against germs and whatever else is out there.

My bathroom is really old and not that well ventilated. You need to dry it after showering to prevent mold. So, I use the towel first, then dry my bathroom with it and then it goes in the laundry basket.

Hotel towels, though, I use 2-3 times.
