OMG!! I yell at my Boyfriend or Best Friend all the time for using my towel. It is so frustrating!

lol Fiance tried to pull that with me too. I told him hell no. He gave me the same argument but I wasn’t buying it. I believe guys are inherently dirtier than girls, even when they’re clean. I want to be squeeky clean when I get out of the shower and not have boy germs on me 🙂

We use the same towel sometimes. We’re both squeaky clean when we use it, so why not?

I see no issue with it – you are both clean when using it! 

I wouldn’t want to share all the time because then the towel would always be wet! But I don’t see a problem every now and then!

We use the same towel sometimes.  It’s after we shower so I figure we’re pretty clean then.

IMO it is.  But I’m a bit of a germophobe.

Sometimes when we put the same color towels up by accident, we use each others towels without knowing it.. but who cares.. he can have all my germs lol and I don’t mind any of his.

I think its gross, but I also won’t use the same towel twice for myself which drives FH (and some of ya’ll from other posts I’ve seen) CRAZY! I know I’m clean when I use it but I want a clean towel every time!

ummm… this may be Too Much Information, but I have seen J dry his bum on his towel (he gets pretty darn personal!) and there is NO WAY I’m going to dry my body or hair with a towel he’s used, hahaa…

we use the same towel pretty often.  I’ve never even thought twice about it.  there are a lot grosser things that we do, (i.e. using each other’s toothbrush), so the towel use is really not even the tip of the ice burg for me.

Haha, I think if my hub was like realllly getting personal with the towel it’d be gross but he just pats himself dry or wraps it around his waist.

But I’m also a big believer in the hygeine hypothesis, so a little dirt definately doesn’t hurt IMO

We usually keep 3 towels hanging up that we both use. I have no problem sharing with him and don’t feel an cleaner or dirtier either way. But we share EVERYTHING!! I am not a germophobe at all so that would never bother me.

I’m with daydreamwanderer as well. It would gross me out and besides, we have an entire linen closet full of fresh clean towels – there’s really no need to share.

If he ever tried to use my toothbrush, it would be an absolute dealbreaker. Just thinking about it makes me nauseous.
