Is it healthy to wash a towel after two showers instead of one?

Towel

Just a Dog Chasing Cars asks:

I’d like to save some energy by hanging up my towel after I dry off after a shower, and then using it a second time before washing and drying it. Is this an unhealthy thing to do, or essentially harmless?

  1. How dirty do you get? We hang our towels in front of the hot air vent in the bathroom so they dry quickly and use them until we feel like getting a new one. We have 4 hooks so each person has his own towel. This helps during the flu season too.

  2. essentially harmless. i do the same. we washed our bodies of most contaimnants and bacteria during the shower and bacteria prefer to grow from warm, moist areas and a dry(2-4 hours tops to dry) towel would not be one of them.

    LOL. hasnt washed since September. GEEZ. thats not right.
