Do you wait until they get all grungy? Or do you change them out like every morning? I have been changing mine out every couple of days, it just kinda gives it a fresh feel to replace the one with a clean one. I have plenty so it works out to do so!How often do you change your bathroom hand towels out?

I usually change all towels in the house every other day. I like having fresh towels at all time. I do this with the kitchen towel too. If you went till they are grungy then there is a better chance of germs accumulating causing illness.

That's what I am thinking. I change my kitchen towels out every day or two also. Especially if I am cooking a little more. I also like to change out my hand towels in the bathroom every day or at least every other day!

I try to change the hand towels every couple of days. Especially since it's the summer time here. I change them a little more than during the winter time.

I just now have enough towels to change them out more often! I guess that's what made me think of it to begin with!

Well this may make me sound like a bit of a slob but I only change them once a week. But then again I am the only person in the house and as such they don't get that grubby and if for some reason one does look like it's been used to rub down a car then I do change it sooner.

Yeah, it's mostly just me too. But I find I am washing my hands more now that I am caring for my son!

Since there's just me in my household, I change hand towels about once a week, depending on how much it's been used. I have a round towel holder, so I switch the towel ends about half way through the week so it's fresh.

A round towel holder? I'm not sure what that it. I hand my towel on a rack. That way it hangs down on both sides. I change it out when one side gets too wet, that lets me know I am washing my hands more than usual!

This is a trivial question, but every day, espesially in the summer time.

Yes it is a trivial question! It's probably a trivial activity! But I change mine out every day or two!

Maybe every couple of days in winter,but definitely everyday in summer.

Hi, macdingolinger. I change out my hand towels, when they get dirty looking. This can be every three days or so. I have many towels that I use to dry my hands in. But, I don't have a lot of hand towels. I really need to buy me some of these. I love changing out my hand towels in my bathroom, it makes the bathroom look clean. I can't stand drying my hands on a dingy hand towel.

I usually change ours every other day or so. Especially since the kids gunk up the bathroom hand towel with toothpaste all the time.
