Expert shares how often you should be washing your towels and you’ve DEFINITELY not been doing it enough
IF you thought washing your towels once a week gives you theworld's most organised title then think again, because an expert has revealed just how often you should actually be washing them.
In order to maintain cleanliness and prevent gross bacteria from spreading, home stylist Liz Amaya, from Brisbane, Australia said towels should be washed every single day.
You read that right, every day, particularly hand towels – and it's left people shocked.
Liz shared the little-known fact with her 84,000 Instagram followers and said at the very most the towel you use after a shower of bath should be replaced after three uses.
"Towels absorb a lot of water and remain damp for hours, which is the perfect breeding ground for unwanted germs," she wrote in the clip.
And don't go assuming all towels and bath mats are created equal either as each have their own life span.
Hand towels and wash cloths should be washed daily and twice weekly for bath mats, according to Liz.
"Washcloths that you use to lather and scrub in the shower should air-dry and be washed after every use," she wrote.
Liz's advice is also recommended by The Cleaning Institute, according to Mail Online,who also suggested washing towels after a maximum of three uses.
If you shower every day, your towels should be washed twice a week to remove any germs.
Meanwhile, gym towels and kitchen tea towels should also be cleaned regularly.
Unsurprisingly, the revelation left many shocked while some agreed that all towels should be washed frequently.
"Daily! Love a nice fresh towel after a shower," one woman wrote.
And another added: "Every two days and sometimes daily especially on summer."
