Wash the cloth with soap and warm water if it gets dusty. Halloween has been a scary time of the year for.
Wash the cloth with soap and warm water if it gets dusty. Put a drop of dish soap on the cloth and work it into the fabric, then rinse it out until all the soap and dirt are gone. Put your microfiber cloth in the washing machine for easy cleaning. Norwex cloths can be washed alone or with lint-free laundry in your washing machine. Use the hottest setting possible for the best results. You can use regular laundry detergent, but do not use bleach or fabric softener in the wash.
Boil your Norwex cloth for about 10 minutes to remove deep stains or odors. Bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove, then carefully place your Norwex into the pot and allow the water to continue boiling for 10 minutes or so. This will allow the fibers to well, releasing dirt and other debris that may be trapped deep inside the cloth.
Use tongs to remove the cloth from the hot water when it's finished boiling. Let it soak for 10 minutes to open the fibers and release dirt and odors. Use the Norwex rubber brush to clean mop pads between washings. You may not need to wash your mop pad after every use. Instead, comb the Norwex rubber brush across the cloth to detach any hair, crumbs, or other debris that is trapped in the microfibers.
Part 2 of Dry your cloth in the dryer for a quick and easy option. Norwex cloths are dryer-safe, so all you have to do is toss them in after you get finished washing them. You can even add them in with the rest of your laundry. Just use the hottest setting possible when you're drying the microfiber. Do not use dryer sheets when drying your Norwex. However, you can use a dryer ball, as long as it doesn't contain any fabric softener.
Hang your Norwex up to dry if you prefer line-drying. If you don't have a dryer, or if you just prefer air-drying your clothes, hang the Norwex microfiber up to dry. Use clothespins to attach the corners of the Norwex cloth to a clothesline and leave them there until they dry. You can hang up a clothesline outside or in an airy room in your house.
Yes, but only wash with other fabric of the same texture and color, and preferably on the delicate cycle. DO NOT use any bleach or fabric softener in the washing machine or the dryer. Hanging to dry is best. Not Helpful 0 Helpful 4. Should I use a different cloth to wash windows if using EnviroCloth makes streaks?
You need a window cloth to use after the EnviroCloth to get that sparkly shine. Not Helpful 1 Helpful 9. I didn't know not to use fabric softener when I dried my cloth. Have I ruined it? Fabric softener isn't recommended because it can coat the fibers and "gunk up" the cloth, preventing it from lifting dirt and bacteria off the surface. Try deep cleaning it with washing soda and Norwex laundry detergent.
Boil a pot of water, then remove the pot from heat and add your washing soda, detergent and cloth. Use a pair of tongs to swish the cloth around and agitate it like a washing machine. Do this as many times as needed until the water rinses clear. Not Helpful 2 Helpful 7.
It's a good idea. Not Helpful 2 Helpful 3. Yes, that is all I ever use on my face, I don't think it makes any difference. Not Helpful 1 Helpful 6. Hat tip to my friend Stacy for this idea! You know how your kitchen washcloths get a funky stink over time, even if you are a responsible washcloth user?
Anyway, Stacy posted on Instagram saying you can boil your washcloths for 10 minutes to get the stink out. I tried it, and by golly, she was right! Ten minutes in a pot, then a run through the wash, and the smell was gone. Such an improvement in smell. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Remove the food out of dishes and pans with a brush and a good rinse first, before using a dish rag. Then scrape all food off of the rag when done.
I always use boiling water every meal to melt fats and residue off of them. I thought I would take this boiling thing 1 step further by adding some baking soda to the pot. Just tried this tip for some old smelly dishwashing cloths last night, and it worked like a charm! Simple and frugal! Thank you again for sharing the great tip.
I have a much simpler suggestion. I have washed ALL of our laundry exclusively in cold water for the past two years. I use a cup of vinegar in the final rinse. I hang my laundry outside to dry or in the basement in the winter where our woodstove is. I have never ever had a funny smell in my dishrags or sponge. The sponge goes in the dishwasher every time it is run.
I wash my kitchen linens once a week. I have made my own dishrags from used bath towels for many, many years. The thought of boiling pots on the stove, dumping and wringing out the whole mess sounds like a lot of work, dangerous and costly. I might suggest that you change your dishrag more frequently and be positive they are completely dry before putting in the hamper. I have a wooden drying rack in my basement for just this purpose. Everything goes there to completely dry before it goes in the hamper.
You know those white Gerber burp cloths? When the first set wore out, I bought another package or two. So we boiled them! Took all the sizing right out, and broke the fibers down enough to make them soft and cuddly enough. Too much laundry soap and use of liquid fabric softener is the reason why they stink. Then for dish rags you are adding more soap cleaners and dish soap to it along with organic material like food matter.
My bath towels started to small musty too. So after some research, I cut back on my laundry soap, I use vinegar for the rinse and wash on sanitary. I have a front loader so this also helps rid it of the excess build up of detergent and fabric softener used on every thing else. It just makes such a mess in both the washer and dryer over time.
I also leave the lid open on the washer after finishing the last load so it has a chance to dry out inside. Occasionally a load will get left after washing for a day or two and then I re-rinse with some added vinegar. That has always taken care of any smell from the day or two in the washer. It also has kept the inside of my washing machine clean and not looking like a nearly 20 year old machine.
I wonder how much of the smell factor people are getting is from the residue water one is using in the washing machine—especially if you only have one rinse and never leave the door open so the tub can dry out? Appreciate the ideas. I always choose dishcloths that dry quickly and yes, no leaving them in a bundle at the bottom of the sink. Years ago, our grandparents often boiled their kitchen cloths. I remember my mother doing this in a large copper tub on a wood stove we refused to depart with.
Fast forward into motherhood and I met wonderful senior citizen. She invited me for tea and I noticed she poured the extra boiled water on her washcloth in the sink. She was taught this by her mother. This is my method. I usually pour the boiled water on the cloth. And I also like to use white towels. Thank you, thank you! I boiled until I had to purchase a new washing machine last year. It has a sanitize setting on it that is just short of a miracle. Downside, it is a 2 hour cycle.
The next 4 years I had to toss and replace several times. I was so frustrated. My old ones were at least 20 years old. I only replaced the old ones because they were threadbare, not due to odor. I only buy cotton so presume it is something to do with modern processing. My name is Kristyna. I need this advice. I poured boiling water over both.
Something in the back of my mind, from reading many old novels while I was growing up, is reminded that housewives used to scald their dishcloths. You can also sanitize your cutting boards after cutting raw chicken, by pouring boiling water over them.
I got a bit confused about this post until I remembered that washing machines are different in the US vs. I call US classic the kind of machine where you can actually see the water filling up the washer and add clothes while the water is filling the washing area?
Might be something to investigate? I recently visited a friend from France who lives in the US and she told me washing machines over do not work as well as the ones we have in Europe. It worked much better. Agreed on the hot water thing. Our washer is an LG brand top loading HE washer, and it took me a while to figure out the best settings. Our second HE Front-loading washer was like that — then the electronics died. It does its full load in 35 minutes our other washer took 50 , and for a light load of not deeply soiled stuff, I can get it done in 15!
Its electronics work fast and reliably— no more wondering if the machine is actually going to start! This has been my experience too. What I want to know is why this happens in the first place?! No matter how clean, dry, laundered… it happens every time. Any scientists out there with an answer? Issue 1: Bacteria. Dish cloths see a lot more food stuff than normal laundry, so more food for bacteria.
Plus, they tend to spend more of their lives being wet, hence, more opportunity for bacteria to grow. One would hope this would be washed away during normal laundering, but maybe not all of it? Boiling would definitely kill any lingering bacteria. Issue 2: Rancid Oils. This is the smell that I notice even after laundering. Boiling gets the oils out, so no more rancid smell. Hi Mel, My mum used to do this with cleaning cloths and tea towels as well. Never tried it myself but what I do do is zap the dishcloth in the microwave for a minute to stop any bacteria.
