Do you really need to use a clean towel everytime? My family do! Why is it so hard to hang up towels and reuse? I find towels hiding everywhere! In the clothes baskets, behind doors, in wardrobes and behind doors! No matter how many times I remind everyone to return the towels to the towel rack or we run out of clean towels, they just don’t get the message!

  • I can relate – my partner although he intends to reuse, forgets where he hangs his towel and ends up getting another!! Re-use them – you’re only drying a clean body

  • Go on strike. Refuse to pick the towels up and wash them all the time. If they run out a few times, they might rethink their treatment of them. My Aunty had to have 2 towels, one fir top half one for bottom half, no way would she use a towel on her face that had touched her bum. AND she had clean ones EVERY day. Some people like to have too much to do I think

  • I think you are going to have to ration them. One towel a week (wash on a specific day each week) If you don’t hang it up to dry, then you use a wet stinky towel (or a rewards system – but that is age dependent). It’s hard I know, but it is also horrible trying to try towels from washing in winter

  • Towels, towels, towels! I agree with hanging them up and have a little reward system going- it does help(most of the time) -;)

  • This would drive me crazy! Towels in our house get hung after each use and they are used for around 3-4 days before we change them. Take them away and see how quick they change their tune! Especially with winter on the way hahaha

  • We have to work on this one too – I think I’m starting to get somewhere…

  • I totally agree about reusing towels. You are clean when you get out of the shower/ bath so it doesn’t make the towel dirty.
    If you hang them up to dry they are fine
