How unhygenic is constant handwashing of laundry?

For various reasons, it's significantly more convenient for me to handwash my dirty clothes/linens with detergent in the bathtub, and dry them on a rack in the living room. It's so convenient, in fact, that I'll bother to do my laundry, rather than wear rarely machine-washed and dirty clothes most of the time.

This solution doesn't seem terribly unhygenic to me, though it does seem like something my mom would frown upon (hence the anonymity). Am I missing something? How gross is it, exactly? And how can I make it less gross? It's not like I want to brag about it to people, I just don't want to catch a fungus or something.
