Give Dishcloths and Cleaning Rags a Deep Cleaning

Dishcloths and cleaning rags can get pretty grimy over time, so I like to give them a thorough, deep cleaning every now and then. To do this, I simply take a load of them and soak them in a solution of boiled vinegar and a few drops of Dawn dish soap. I let them soak for an hour or so, then toss them into the washing machine with laundry detergent (any brand you prefer or have on hand) and a good sprinkling of baking soda. After that, I run them through the dryer. Any smell that they had is then gone and they're thoroughly fresh smelling and clean!

You can't beat baking soda for a fresh, clean scent.

Thank you

I'm pretty sure they put vinegar in a pan and heated it to boiling on the stove, before adding in a bit of dish soap. Then use that resulting solution to soak your rags.

adding microfibers to the dryer repels water if you air dry microfibers overnight their dry..if you try wiping up spills the microfibers wont work its like putting bounce in your towels
