So I step out of the shower and I forgot to bring a fresh towel. I use his. It smells funny. I ask him "when was the last time you washed your towel." He responds "I dunno, a month?" I try to explain to him that it’s gross so he says to me "After I shower, I am the cleanest thing in the bathroom – therefore the towel should be getting cleaner too."

Haha…you gotta admit, his logic makes sense. But gross nonetheless.

I just laughed OUT LOUD!!!! That’s how my guy is. He does hang it up nice to dry out now that I’ve shown him nicely how to do that.
We have "assigned" chores, he does the trash & the litter box, I do the laundry and the dishes. If the towel looks/smells scary, it goes in the washer…. 🙂

I’m with happilywaiting. I didn’t want to say it but this is kinda funny because it’s just like a guy to say that. I think that I’ve actually heard my cousins say that. I do agree though that is gross.

And my guy is a welder, so I wash his work clothes separately because even though I shake out his pants pockets, I always find pieces of steel (or rusty bits of the bridge he’s working on) in the washer when it’s done.

My FI always had stinky towels. And then I’d wipe down with it and STINK all freakin’ day. I’m pretty sure he said the EXACT same thing to me about how clean his towels should be. Well, water’s clean too and if you let it sit too long it gets stinky
I have to change out the towels every few days. I dry off with mine maybe 2 or 3 times before it goes in the hamper. It’s not like it dries in an hour. Or i just stand there naked, demanding a clean towel. Then dry off, put lotion on, and clothes on like I have better things to do =].

Haha! This is too funny. Growing up with 3 brothers and now living with my fiance, stuff like this doesn’t faze me anymore. I’m used to the gross-ness of boys. I wash the towels every few days. I don’t think my fiance evens notices.

My fiance has been playing a lot of soccer and flag football lately and on top of that we’ve had a lot of rain. I will admit he’s gotten a lot better at controlling the gross-factor since we started living together but I got in his car this morning for a ride to the subway station and it reeked. He was like, "Does it stink in here to you? I can’t figure out why?" I replied, "Well, you played soccer in the rain for a couple of hours last night and got damp and sweaty! You need to get some Febreeze in here!" He didn’t think the smell was from him! How is that possible? Ha ha!

They DO notice when you switch from "manly gain" detergent to "lavendar vanilla" downey softener.
Unfortunately, I refuse to go back to Gain just for his sake. I like the way my sheets smell

EW omg. That’s so gross. Wash his towels! Lol. I hate that weird smell that a dish towel gets if it’s not brand new.

ew! luckily my FI is anal about damp towels because he HATES the mildewy smell. he did however think that the shower never needed to be cleaned because "it just washes itself"!

My FI has stinky towels too. When I go over to his house, I sneak to the bedroom and throw a load in the washer. LOL! He’s also one that when clothes are done drying, they go from the dryer (or clothes line) straight to the bed. Rarely folds them. And he’s the guy that you see on TV that picks a shirt of the ground and smells it, and says "This can go for one more day". LOL!
I’m breaking him slowly. lol BUT, but a plus is, FI works for a soap factory, so he brings home CHEAP detergents, free bleach & shampoo, cheap liquid dish soap, dishwasher detergent & free dryer sheets. We’re set. But you’d think that he’d use them every once and a while! LOL.

My husband used to clean his bathroom only when I complained of how dirty it was getting, now that we’re married, he complains that I expect it too clean. Men dont react to dirt, grime and such the way we do. But he does clean the bathroom, take out the garbage and fill the dishwasher. I cook, sweep/mop, wash clothes and iron.
