Hey you! Yeah, you! You've ~probably~ used a towel before, right?
They're pretty convenient for getting you dry after a shower or whatever.
But chances are you're not washing your towels as frequently as you should.
It turns out towels get really dirty, really fast. As in, they should be washed after EVERY THREE USES.
And, said Tierno, if it's growing microbes, you can usually tell by the towel's smell.
So what's the big deal about using a smelly, microbe-rich towel? Welp, for one, the towel is basically getting you dirtier, not cleaner. And two, if you're sharing towels, the bacteria on the towel from others can cause stuff like acne, infections, or even — gasp! — boils.
Honestly? If you don't have clean towels you might just be better off air drying.
After every use.Once a week.Every other week.Once a month.Every two months.When they're so crusty I can no longer fold them.
