It's OK to reuse towels!Follow these tips from Carolyn Forté, Director of the GHRI Home Appliances and Cleaning Products Department, to help keep things clean around the house without doing too much extra work.
1. Use your bath towels more than once.
Think about it: You use a towel after taking a shower, so it's not that dirty after one use. Provided you always hang it up and let it dry between uses, you can re-use a towel two or three times before you need to throw it in the laundry. Washing towels after every use is a waste of detergent, water, and energy, not to mention that it will wear them out much quicker.
2. Wear your jeans a few times before washing.
Denim is excellent at masking dirt, which actually works in your favor. Over washing your favorite pair of jeans can cause them to fade and fray. Unless there's an obvious stain, you can wear them a few times.
