Friday Wisdom – towels

Why do we wash bath towels?

Aren’t we clean when we use them?

  1. Because people keeps sneaking
    into my bathroom and doing God
    only knows in there. They could
    even be using my bath towel to
    blow their nose! Or even wiping
    gravy off their hairy toes?!

  2. Save water…shower with a friend! And use the same towel to dry each other off. (This really doesn’t answer your question, but it sure sounds like fun!)

    I wasn’t able to stop by on Friday, but I do need to check in for my weekly does of wisdom. As I do have bath towels, and do bathe regularly, your question was of particular necessity. It could help if we have another drought, don’t you think?

  4. LOL! That reminds me of a Dilbert cartoon: Wally figures he’s the cleanest thing in the house when he gets out of the shower, so the towel should just get cleaner when he uses it. He then follows up with the question, “Should bath towels bend?” 😉

  5. It’s weird that they eventually get kind of smelly. Maybe it’s from not drying quickly enough. They don’t get washed nearly as often as they’re probably supposed to in my house.

    I’ve got the feeling we don’t want to know the answer to that. 😉

  7. Is that why hotels are now asking us to use our towels for another day or two??

  8. Spoken like a true man. I won’t go into the details of why we are not really that clean [wink]
