If they are dirty/sweaty by the time they get to the towel stage of bathing they're doing it wrong :)


Do you take cold showers?

After working out, I'm extremely sweaty and hot, and after a cool shower, I'm usually still sweating.  I only go so cold though, it seems like it's hardly any turning to go from cool to shivering in the shower.

Good point, I rarely shower directly after exercise so I don't sweat after showering but it can certainly happen. And yes, I usually turn it to cold for the last 10-60 seconds or all cold in the warmer months.

Ha. I get to mostly cold and think "Hmm, this cold shower isn't so bad. I've turned the hot water almost all the way off and I'm doing fine. Let's just go that last little...Oh my god I can't breathe what is happening."

Our kids think everything lasts one use.


I'm laughing because when I was a kid, clothes felt much more comfortable after you'd already worn them for a day. I would have worn the same shirt and pants all week if my mother had let me.

I read a Reddit thread once where a surprising (to me) number of people said their households didn't have allocated towels/towel rails, and they would just use whichever towel felt dry.

I'm no princess but ಠ_ಠ.

yeah no. Clearly none of these people have a tendency to break out. Everyone should be able to control the cleanliness of their own towel.

My mother in law gives all the grandkids a towel with their name embroidered on it every year for Christmas. I'm basically never buying another towel again and they will have plenty to take with them when they move out!

Towels get washed once a week in my household and only because I make sure they get rotated out. For the most part you are using them to rub your just-cleaned body dry, so they certainly don’t need to be washed all the time. As for people having individual towels.... I can see wanting that if you live with random roommates, but I see no need in my house I share with my husband and children. For heaven’s sake, I’m okay with us rubbing our naked bodies together to produce these little people, why would I not be okay sharing a towel?

People are weird. Kissing is fine but I can't use your toothbrush? Oral is fine but you want me to wash my hands after I go to the bathroom?

Why does everyone have to be so picky?

That is gross.  I'll kiss my wife, but I don't really want all her food particles and bacteria to get up in my nooks and crannies.

Also toothbrushes are consumables with life spans, so you really aren't saving any money by sharing.  You are just going through each brush twice as fast, but it's 100 times as gross.

We have an electric toothbrush and are too lazy to swap heads back and forth several times a day. For manual brushes we have our own, as we have different preferences for bristle softness.

I’m not sure how his food particles are grosser than my food particles from the last time I brushed my teeth.

On a side note, i find that dipping the bristles in a cup where I’m cleaning my retainers with denture cleaner is great for cleaning the toothbrush as well

Most modern ideas about grossness is just natural self defense mechanisms to prevent disease spreading. Sharing toothbrushes is a highly effective way to transfer bacteria, more so than kissing (unless you use your tongue to really get in there between the teeth...)

For heavenís sake, Iím okay with us rubbing our naked bodies together to produce these little people, why would I not be okay sharing a towel?

"Teaching people about handwashing helps them and their communities stay healthy. Handwashing education in the community:

Reduces the number of people who get sick with diarrhea by 31% 1, 2
Reduces diarrheal illness in people with weakened immune systems by 58% 3
Reduces respiratory illnesses, like colds, in the general population by 16-21% 2, 4"

In my house, we have our own bath towels and toothbrushes and wash our hands.

I might just be tired, but this has to be one of the funniest thread diversions I've seen in a long time! :)

Maybe someone should start a thread with a poll, asking if people share towels and/or how long they go between washings.

Now, not wanting to touch teen boy sheets makes sense, but I do wonder if both his legs were recently broken so that he couldn't walk to the washing machine.

Capable, but not organised or willing. Left to the teenage boy, those sheets would literally be standing on their own. And he still wouldn't see the problem.

My uni had a sheet exchange - you just had to drop off the used sheets and pick up a clean set each week. Or, in the case of one guy who somehow missed that detail, at the end of the first semester. ಠ_ಠ

(I always used and washed my own linen. The uni had gotten a good deal on Australian flag doona covers, and patriotism wasn't really the vibe I was going for in my dorm room.)

Lol. These responses are funny. My husband feels that way too. He also doesn't voluntarily change sheets or make the bed. That's my job. But I don't voluntarily mow the lawn either so it's fair. We're all for reinforcing gender stereotypes in our house ;).

Saw this anti-mustachain post of a Suburban for sale in the local buy and sell group...

"2014 Suburban for sale, $41500 obo, low mileage only 84k, great for any family"

My version of the ad would have gone something like this

"2014 Clown Truck/Bus for sale, only 20x the $ of a reasonable vehicle, low mileage if it used to be a taxi, great for any family of 8 making $500k/year or more that hates the planet"

Fuck me, I wish I could write that in the comments, but I'd be kicked off the group for sure

What I don't get is how 41,500 is even close to a good price. When I was a dumb early 20s person, I bought my Toyota Matrix with ZERO MILES at $23,000.

The average 2014 Suburban on Autotrader is $31k with roughly 50-60k miles. This one definitely sounds overpriced.

Oh, sorry in fairness, that was Canadian Dollars, so something like $33-34k US, but yeah still overpriced.  My guess is they are trying to get more than what they still owe on it.

Of course, $31k won't pay off the previous car loan they rolled into this one though......

Yup, exactly.  Type of people that buy a car like this brand new are likely to be the type to trade in a vehicle or even 2 that they are still underwater on and roll it into the financing of a brand new one

To add a tiny bit of balance, I don't make the bed. My husband does it every day, completely voluntarily, because he says that it makes the house look neater for less effort than any other task.

Can confirm, house does not typically look neat, but the bedroom does.

Agreed, except then the Venomous Spaz Beast can't burrow into it while I'm at the office. She's too teeny to move the bedspread and pillows.

Unless the bedroom is on a main guest traffic path why bother?

If the bedroom is on a main guest traffic path, my mental image is:
   a)swingers pad
   b)really poorly designed house bedroom
   c)unfortunate / ill conceived bedroom choice

Unless the bedroom is on a main guest traffic path why bother?

If the bedroom is on a main guest traffic path, my mental image is:
   a)swingers pad
   b)really poorly designed house bedroom
   c)unfortunate / ill conceived bedroom choice

It can be annoying getting into bed and finding the sheets/blankets are tangled/misaligned.  My first house was 800 SF, so the door to the master BR opened to the living room.  Some genius decided to install a glass-pane door.  When I bought it, I at least put a curtain on the door, but the bed would be visible from the living room seating area if the door and curtain weren't both completely closed.

I'll occasionally make the bed because I suspect the dog sneaks up there and naps during the day, and at least this way the quilt is covering the pillows.

Google is saying mites prefer beds that are made everyday.  And if I were going to wear a shirt everyday I would prefer to hang if up when not in use vs ball it up where it cant breathe.  I do get the mental arguments for bed making but there seems to be some health reasons not to.

I leave the covers down so the bed can air out, then make it after breakfast.  Best of both worlds.

I don't sleep with a blanket.  Problem solved.

You can always get a sign or glass company to come add vinyl to the glass so it looks frosted.
