Never Enough Clean Towels

What the hell is wrong with people who can’t hang up their bath towel after they have taken a shower and let it dry out so they can use it again. I am so sick of doing massive amounts of laundry, especially bath towels that have only been used once.

When I was growing up, we were given one towel for the week and we had to keep it clean and dry and ready for use after a bath or a shower. My mom only did laundry on Tuesdays and if we didn’t keep our towel clean then we were tough out of luck for drying off after our nightly bath. I will never forget the one night I had no clean towel and had to dry off using a washcloth that someone left hanging on the towel bar in the bathroom. It would have made a hysterically funny video for YouTube – except when it happens to you, it is not so funny.

I still use a towel at least three or four times before dropping it into the laundry. But some people seem to think it is quite alright to just drop the towel in the floor and walk away, leaving it to be laundered instead of used again. That shit just pisses me off – it is a waste of laundry detergent and dryer time to wash so many towels so often. Very wasteful.
