I have tried everything for these dish cloths – and they remain stinky.
Over at Tammy’s Recipes, some commenters mentioned they boiled the dish cloths.
This time, I decided to do a little experiment.
- Boil some.
- Do nothing to the others.
- See how long the difference lasts.
If your dish cloths are stinky, simply bring a pot of water to a boil.
Add the dish cloths and boil them for 10-15 minutes at a medium boil rate.
Use extreme caution, because the cloths can cause splashing of the hot water as it boils.
Strain the cloths and then toss them in the washing machine as you normally would.
I’m going on three washes now without the smell coming back… and that’s lasted longer than any other mechanism I’ve tried. I’m ready to do the other half of my dish cloths!!
