Can I get HIV by using infected towel?

I’m 24 years old. Male. If my friend is hiv positive and masturbated in my bathroom, then washes hands and dried them on my towel, and I walk in, wash hands, dry them with the same towel and masturbate after, can I contract hiv? Is it possible it was on the towel and then on my hands and then on my body and entered via bodily fluids?
