I switch out all the towels on Monday. We hang up our towels, too, so they dry. I have a separate "cleaning up" towel on this bathroom counter because we wipe down the counter after each use.

We hang ours to dry also and use them until I feel like washing them. We probably use them at least a wk. I do use two towels though. One is used only on my face, then I wrap it around my hair. The other is used to dry my body.

Around 5-7 days for dh and I. The kids get a fresh one each time.

Usually 2 sometimes 3 uses for me and dh. The girls do their own laundry and towels so it maybe as many as 6 or 7 for them Gross!!! I know, but they will learn not to be so lazy someday. They are 17 and 19 years old.

3-4 times unless they get really dirty/wet. I wash towels twice a week.

We all shower at least twice a day. We use the same towel the entire day then it gets washed.

We go about a week. We all have a designated place to hang ours so that they dry after each use. I will however wash them sooner if they begin to get smelly.

My hubby and I use ours a few days in a row, sometimes a week. The kids share one and theirs gets washed after every bath. We have 3 (they all get washed in assembly line type fashion) and when the baby is done the towel can't dry anything else so it gets washed. My kids are still young so they don't get a bath every day yet unless they've gotten pretty dirty or sweaty playing outside.

For those that use a different towel on face/hair... have you ever used that one on the body after a couple of uses and then tossed it in the hamper. I know a lady that does that since she says it doesn't get as dirty as the body towel.
