Is it ok to mix towels used with cavies with other towels?

I don't really see why not, I have a few times before.

That's up to you. I, personally, would not, because of all the urine in the cavy towels. If you wash them out in the tub beforehand, it gets most of it out, and wouldn't be so bad.

Again, it wouldn't hurt the towels, but I wouldn't do it.

thanks for the input! I wasn't too sure if something would happen. But thanks!!!

I wash mine with other towels-not our personal bath towels, but kitchen towels and washcloths.

that makes sense! I might wash them when my mom washes our barn towels and rags, but she does that once a month! So I'll just stick with washing them by themselves. :(

I wash my daughter's swimming towels with the piggy bedding once a week. I use really hot water for washing the towels and a mild detergent along with Oxyclean (R) to get everything clean. With the hot water, I don't think its a problem.
