I don't see why you couldn't, but they will probably stink bad when boiled. I just bleached them to strip.

MF is made from polyester, which can harden if heated too much - but what is ”too much” can actually vary by fabric. In short, I don't know - but I'll boil one of my old cleaning towels to test it after I get DS to school.

None are dry yet, but I'd say it's fine. After doing the old, somewhat stiff/rough ones I tossed a new one in too. The old ones may have actually softened up some, while the new one may be ever so slightly less soft. It's a pretty miniscule difference, either way. Just be sure to stir the entire time so no part rests against the bottom of the pot too long. Also, FWIW I boiled with dish soap and a splash of vinegar added to the water.
