A couple times a week. A ferret "bath" mostly consists of filling the tub with a couple inches of water and letting them paddle around for a bit.

They end up taking more time getting three (or even two) towels. I would say 90%+ get three paper towels dispensed.

Waste in general is a pet peeve of mine.
i always get two. my work machine dispenses it so 2 is needed.

I prefer to call them pickled cucumbers, but if you want to call them by another name it's no big dill
