Using the same towel repeatedly without washing gives a musty smell. Keeping the wet towel gives a moist-kind smell and not washing it regularly will make your body smell like that too. Hence, you won’t feel fresh besides smelling musty.
You Get Prone To Bacteria:
The used towels put the dirt back to your skin hence, you become prone to bacteria. There are kinds of bacteria which thrive on towels of which your body isn’t used too hence, giving ill effects to your skin. Keeping unwashed towels in contact to other clothes also spread this bacteria.
You May Get Allergies:
The unwashed towels can get mold which can give allergic reactions to your skin. Your skin may get redden or you may feel itchy when using the unwashed towel repeatedly.

Therefore, if it is not possible to wash towels regularly, make it a point to wash it after every twice uses. By this, you’ll keep your skin and the surrounding healthy. Follow this in routine and feel fresher.
