So, you'll notice (or not) that I haven't blogged for a week. Sometimes I run out of mo-jo and the world simply fails to produce blog fodder. I could post selfies and pretend I have a fabulous/fun/crazy/hippy/delete-where-appropriate life, but well, I have a 6th grader, - with homework, so that probably wouldn't fly.
And then it came. Wrapped up in a sparkly BuzzFeed bow. This - click and read.
Seriously, - I'm now questioning my domestic habits. Some people wash their towels after every use? What the what? Are you a coal miner? Just how dirty are you when you go in and how un-clean are you when you come out?
So - how often do I wash my towels? To tell you the truth I have no idea. Not that I have a laundress - it's usually because I have more than one-towel-per-person going at the same time. I know. No idea why. I share a bathroom with the Ball & Chain - and yes, I need a medal. We also have a heated towel rack so the towels are usually picked up and placed there immediately after use. I had assumed this would cut down on the mold issues. If anyone could enlighten me that would be a blessing.
With the teenage son's bathroom, well - he now does his own laundry and to be honest. if he catches anything from the towels that never seem to make it to the rail, that's his problem. If I pass his room and there's a smell I will go in and do whatever I have to do, including picking towels off the floor and putting them in his laundry basket, but let's just say "What the eye doesn't see...".
What about you? Please friends, don't all tell me that you launder your towels after every use. Next you'll be telling me you change your toothbrush every 6 months. (Just kidding.)
