Hpv from washcloth?

Can you contract HPV from another person by using the same washcloth after they've used it?

Re: Hpv from washcloth?

I suppose if you are taking a shower with someone and you are passing a washcloth back and forth it would be possible. But definitely not if Person A uses the washcloth, then it goes through the laundry, then Person B uses it.
