I wouldn't think so.....unless you use a LOT of strong detergent when you wash your towels I really don't think there should be any/much left on them once they're clean and dried and all that.
I have specific towels I use for my fish, but I wash them just like any other towels. I've wiped down the inside of tanks and patted dry decor after rinsing it with these towels(so it, you know, didn't drip all over the place when I moved it back to the tank)and never had any problems.
