Towels – not exactly compelling things, are they?
You pull them out of the drawer clean, use them to dry off, wash, dry and repeat. The most exciting thing about towels is that you can now get some pretty funky patterned ones to brighten up your bathing experience.
But they’re not exactly something to argue about, are they?
After the photographer, a massive debate broke out on social media Abdul Dremali asked how many towels an average adult should “normally” own.
It started after a conversation with his girlfriend revealed that they have very different ideas about how many we should all have in the closet.
What do you think is the right amount of towels? Let us know in the comments…
He tweeted: “Hello fellows. My girlfriend and I have a question… what is the right amount of towels?
“I said 10 and she looked at me like I was crazy.
“We don’t have a frame of reference for the appropriate amount of towels in a two-person household.”
It wasn’t long before he was inundated with responses as people shared their idea of ”normal,” with wildly different numbers being suggested.
One person wrote: “10-15 for two people is reasonable. You can never have too many towels. I think I got 12 for two and wish I had more. I couldn’t stress that enough. YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY TOWELS.” So quite a towel enthusiast…
Another said: “Two. One for you and one for her.” Hmm, actually we have to disagree. What happens when you put them in the wash but have to take a shower?!
Another went to the other extreme, writing: “Okay so I counted 30 towels for my two person household with no dog (not counting hand towels, washcloths and bath mats). Full closets. Not exaggerated.” Mk…
Another wrote, “The correct answer is what your girlfriend wants… but I support your answer.”
The question caused a lot of uproar, leaving many people questioning what is actually normal, while others were just intrigued by the whole discussion and how upset people seemed to be about it.

Someone said: “My roommate uses a new one every time he takes a shower and thinks it’s normal. Can anybody confirm this?”
Someone else said they were “fascinated” and “appalled” by the varying amounts of towels people seem to own and use.
Another pretty much ended the conversation by saying, “You all need to get out more.”
Well, that’s what the towel lovers said…
