Face cloths & dish rags smell musky

I wash them in cold, I wash them in hot, I dry them right after in the dryer... why do they smell like an old man's bum?!

  • I agree with the bleach thing...if you don't want to use bleach, run them through the washer with only water and vinegar. They will stop smelling like vinegar once they dry.

  • You need to put a bit of bleach in the wash with them. You have something growing in them.

  • Good idea. I think I'd even soak them in a bleach solution.
