The general public tends to agree on a set of unspoken household rules: wipe your feet off before you enter someone's home, always have a spare set of clean bedsheets, don't leave your dishes in the sink, etc. But one rule has taken the internet by storm: How many bath towels should someone actually own?
user Advil launched the tweet that started Towelgate this weekend, and has garnered almost 2,500 replies. He believes that 10 is the perfect number of towels for a couple to own—but his girlfriend, not so much.
Soon enough, the internet's replies came pouring in, with everyone wanting to put their two cents in on the Great Towel Debate. Some said 10 was just perfect, others replied that you definitely need more than 12, and some were more stumped than ever before.
There were some promising, well thought-out responses, including this one from Lauren Morrill...
...and this one from Jeannie Lee.
While it definitely depends on how many people are living in the household, how many guests you typically have visit you, and a few other factors, we can all agree that most households should have more than one. (C'mon, what are you going to dry off with while your sole towel is being washed?!)
For a more definitive answer though, we're going to need Marie Kondo to weigh in.
