Quit multiple reuse of bath towel



No matter how clean you assume your skin is after a bath, you should know that the pores still carries dirt formed into microorganisms that your towel extracts in the cause of wiping your skin.

You have 19 million skin cells and 650 sweat glands in every inch of your body and even after a bath, the skin cell never gets completely clean until you use the towel.

Apparently the soap and sponge only opens the pores when you bath as dead cells make up the top 20 layers of your skin. Some of these cells scrub off in the shower, but many of them will end up on your towel. So the towel is the only tool that keeps your skin clean. Hence, reusing the same towel multiple times is marked as a total failure in hygiene routine.


How your towel works
Your towels absorb all the water on your skin and remain damp for hours, which automatically breeds unwanted germs. So to prevent germs from growing on your towel, ensure to let it dry completely between each use, and wash frequently. Regular laundry will clean your towels and remove accumulated germs.

How often should you use a towel?
The Cleaning Institute recommends washing bath towels after three uses. So if you can get your towel-dried before the next use, then you can reuse three times maximum. Meaning, use after bath in the morning, evening and the next morning. After the third use, take it in for laundry and get a fresh towel for the next bath. However, if you can’t guarantee that your towel will dry up before the next use, do not reuse, just opt for a clean towel.
