Stinky dishcloths

Help!! my handknit dishcloths stink…even freshly laundered…
Any helpful ideas…:shrug:

Try soaking them in water with vinegar, then hanging them outside to dry. I’ve found that helps a lot with all sorts of laundry smells.

Or, soak them in the sink with water and bleach for colors. Let them soak for about 15-20 min. then rinse.

I’ve heard you can moisten them and pop them in the microwave for a minute or two, although i’ve never tried it.

That’s what I do with dishcloths and sponges both. It kills all the bacteria in them.
