How should I hand wash my cloth wipes?

I would like to handwash my cloth wipes because I don't have enough of them to go through one day. I only have 12. But, I don't know how to hand wash them. Any tips?

  • Why can't you machine wash them on gentle?

    I'd use a clean sink with hot water, a bit of good soap (not detergent) and 1/4 cup of vinegar. Allow to soak, hand scrub well, rinse really well, then do a final rinse with a bit more vinegar.

  • Depending on what you use them for,, I would say you need to pre-soak in bleach, or something,, soak in sink for about 15 minutes, rinse and toss in the dryer (the will be crunchy if you dry outside)
