I don't follow your logic, kiddo. Doesn't everybody in your household have their own towel? Or... do you expect that everybody uses a towel only once, then places it in the hamper soaking wet, and then puts a new towel on the rack? Me, I use towels for a few days before they go in the laundry, unless they're really dirty. (It would be really expensive and take up a ton of space to have a set of towels for every day of the week.) Between uses, they sit on the rack to dry. When I was a kid, each had our own bath towel, and would do the same thing. If you leave wet towels in the hamper for a few days, they're going to get moldy and gross - that's why you let them dry out, first. You're not going to die from using the same towel as a blood relative.

yes, it's an FML. Think about how people use a towel. Yes OP can just take another shower and yes she'll be fine. That's not the point. It's icky.

"Think about how people use a towel."

to wipe off water AFTER having cleaned oneself? it's not like OP is wearing their dirty underwear. even "dirty" towels are still mostly clean.

"Icky"? Really? I am sure Op has shared drinks with her family. Also, I am sure the towels get washed after a week. If the mother is aware the family puts the dirty towels on the rack, then she knows where to get them to be washed. This is not an FML, this is a "eww" moment and then you know not to use those towels. Op is stupid. My family does the same thing. I am just aware of what towel is mine and which is theirs. Now Op knows to stop being lazy and get her own towel.


yes the water wiped off was clean. but imagine. her mother has rubbed that towel on her vajayjay. and then it has been on her face. how awesome does that make you feel? i wouldn't be rubbing genitals, clean or otherwise, on my face.

This is why you don't reuse towels, I would get a new towel each time I took a shower when I was living at home. I don't want to dry my face off in the same place someone used it to buttfloss.


or you get your own set of towels keep them in your room, and only you use them, everyone in my house knows which towels are mine. And the only person I share a washroom with is my bratty little brother and he wouldn't dare touch my towels.

or you have towels stacked or stored in a certain area that are clean and when they are used you put them in the dirty towels pile. That's just how my family works.

I don't understand how this happened. If you use your own towel, instead of whatever towel happens to be hanging on the rack, you wouldn't have this problem. In my family, we each had 5 towels each in a different color. We only used our color of towel. Now that I'm living with my husband, we just each use whatever towel we pull out of the drawer, and hang it up in our own spot so we don't use each other's. Why would you use a towel that's not yours hanging on the rack in the bathroom? Weird.

Not every family does it that way though! In my family there were two towels of the same color hanging in the bathroom that my brother and I shared. I was usually the first to take a shower but who knows what towel my brother grabbed because they were just hung up again until they were washed over the weekend.
