How Often Do You Wash Your towel?

Ever wonder after how many showers do you throw your towel in the washing machine, and what is the official towel use to wash ratio.
 
First of all, it isn’t environmentally friendly to wash your towels in the washing machine after every single use. But on the other hand, your wet towel is also very popular with bacteria. Apparently, it is the ideal breeding place for E.coli, yeast and mould. 
Microbiologist and pathologist Philip Tierno advises people to wash towels after using them three times. It’s also important to make sure your towel is able to dry properly. You can use a heated drying frame or hang your towel outside on a clothesline.
If you happen to live in a house where towel sharing is rampant, the microbiologist warns that flu and other illnesses can spread more quickly that way, so its best to not share.
