So, how often do you change your bath towel? I remember the Dilbert cartoon where the one guy never changes his bath towel because, theoretically, it should be the cleanest item in his house.

I was recently visiting a couple who had a disagreement on the matter. The husband felt that you should use a towel for a week. The wife thought that rather disgusting and felt that a new towel for each bath/shower is called for.

Personally, I use a new towel each time. On the other hand, my SO uses a new towel whenever I replace hers (I am the one who usually does the laundry).
