It is so awkward when someone blows up the toilet at work and they walk out as you are washing hands so you know who did it.

I don't necessarily think there's a correlation in your statement. This post has just challenged my world view about bath towel usage. I have honestly never heard of anyone using a towel only once before needing to wash it. I am sure there are also those out there who won't even wash the towel; they must have a brand new one.

Sooo, what problems do you encounter in the bathroom.
Lol, first world problems. I agree, no reason to use a fresh one every time... I just allocate certain areas of the towel for "sensitive area" usage. I'm so glad I have my own bathroom and no kids or wife yet. Having lived in a dorm on an all male floor not too long ago, I can tell you, there are more potential irritating problems in the bathroom than you'd think.

We change out the bathroom towels and the bed sheets every two weeks. On payday, so it is easy to keep track.

I like your way of thinking. Why create problems?

Except that when the next guy walks in and see you and gets a whiff, he's sure you are the stinker.

get one of those exploding confetti things where they pop really loudly, wait until they go into a stall and sit down, then stick it in the door and pull the string. They'll go quick then, also those little paper poppers that you throw on the floor, you put one under each of the buttons on the bottom of the seat, and VERY carefully set down the seat, when they sit down to go, BOOM!!

best bathroom prank ever, it only works on toilets with a tank though, and requires a little prep, turn off the water at the wall, flush the toilet to get rid of as much water as possible, pour several gallons of white vinegar into the tank, now add about a box worth of baking soda to the water in the bowl, you can swish it around with a toilet brush if you want, under the rim etc, it looks exactly like comet, so no one will suspect anything but a clean toilet. as soon as someone flushes, they will get a huge foaming boiling mess which will come out of the toilet and go everywhere. It's harmless but will scare the crap out of anyone. A variation on this is to add a couple of teaspoons of dish soap to the water, this keeps the bubbles from breaking, and you get much more foam. You can also add some blue food coloring to the water, it looks like tidy bowl, but will give a weird blue foam, I've scared people so bad that they have run screaming out of the bathroom

The simple "seran wrap over the bowl" prank is pretty great.

Who washes the towels? If she does then it would seem that she would see the light and take better care of the towels. If you do then you need to make a plan that is easy for both of you to follow and explain it to her.

In our bath we have 2 towel bars, one for me and one for my wife. We put our towels on the bars after our showers. About every 5 days or so she puts those towels in the dirty clothes and sets out new towels for us. It works very well.

And BTW when I have problems in the bathroom there are no towels involved.

I used to work a second job at an amusement park, housekeeping, why is there a delayed reaction between little kiddies riding the roller coaster and them puking their guts out in the bathroom AFTER they get off? or bloody noses, happens al the time and the parents never clean it up. and exactly how did they get that crap and puke ON the ceiling? no kidding, really happens, often.

I will use a towel for about 2 weeks.

In our house everyone puts the lid down, so everyone has to do SOMETHING when they use it. Plus, it keeps the dogs from drinking out of it.
