I have a towel question for you ladies. Okay, we've had our bathroom towels for 5 years now. They are just fine. However...(this is really weird and a bit embarassing) the towels that I use REEK after one use. They are the most foul smelling things ever. Dh's towel smells just fine. Dh has even sniffed me all over to see if I smell, but I don't. His towels do not smell...just mine. Do you think I have some weird chemical-y thing going on and interacting with the towel? We use the same soap and shampoo. There is absolutlely nothing different except for the person using the towel. It doesn't smell immediately after I use it, either...within a few hours it starts to smell. We even hang out towels in the same place to dry. The only thing we can think of is that maybe it is because I wrap my hair up in my towel for a few minutes while I get dressed, that maybe it is the conditioner interacting with the towel, but the conditioner is all rinsed out before I get out of the shower. I just don't know! We are at our wits end because I wind up having to use a new towel every day, which I do NOT enjoy because of the extra wash it encourages. So, do you ladies have ANY thoughts on this, because I am about to go spend a chunk of change on some new towels if this doesn't stop!
