What does yours look like?  Do you keep them pretty or worn?

I need more!! Mine are pretty worn and have gotten to the point where you use it once its ok. Next use it smells like mildew. Ewe. Because of this i havent even been using the dishrags...i have been using the cleaning rags in the kitchen to wipe down counters and such. I should go get more. My fav one is a handmade one but its the one that gets stinkiest. Is there any way to prevent that??

Mine are terribly worn out and not pretty at all.  I might have to invest in some new ones soon.

If you wash them in vinegar and then baking soda (you'll have to run them through the wash twice) it strips all the yuckiness out of them and they'll be fresh again.  Run the first load with 1/2 cup vinegar.  Then run it again with 1/2 cup baking soda.  Then dry as you normally would.

I use round disks I find at craft shows to wash my dishes with.

It may take the color out some but you can use a little bleach.
