In theory, bath towels should never get dirty. All you use them for is drying yourself after a cleansing shower. And since your body is cleanest after a shower, the towel shouldnt really be seeing a situation of possible dirtying.

So why do they get dirty?

Because they get wet and then go sour from not drying properly. (Ironically enough.)

I'm guessing the hair and skin cells that it catches get nasty too. It has always annoyed me that you have to wash towels so often.

for sure! my boyfriend takes 2 showers a day and uses a new towel each time! plus he never does his laundry, so i am left w/out....i do not think it is that necessary to use a clean one every time...maybe use them for 2 showers, you know you are clean now.....

Pretty mind blowing my friend. My grandma also once said this. Maybe she smokes...?
