How many times do YOU use your towel before you wash it? Once, Twice, Two Weeks? Well, new research shows the MAGIC NUMBER IS 3! That's only if you hang your towel up to dry after use. If you are one of those people who throw their towels on the floor in a ball then you need to wash it as soon as possible. The bacteria and mold tend to grow on a towel that's even hung up to dry after 3 uses so you risk wiping that back on your body. How about washcloths? Experts say for that...ONCE! It's totally wet and needs to be washed to avoid bacteria growth. Happy showering!
