How to wash kitchen towels

Kitchen towels can become real breeding grounds for bacteria if not washed regularly. Dirt, grease, and food residues penetrate deep into the fibers, making it difficult to clean textiles.

If laundry detergent doesn't help, experts suggest using a "folk" life hack. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to easily get rid of all stains on towels.

This method was used by our grandmothers, who did not have enough alternatives in times of shortage. This life hack, proven over the years, is still very popular. Ordinary vinegar will help restore the towels to cleanliness and whiteness. Pour vinegar into a bowl of warm water and soak the towels for at least 30 minutes.

You can also add vinegar and citric acid directly to the washing machine. Put 1/2 cup of vinegar in the fabric softener compartment along with the detergent. The acidified water will restore the cleanliness and freshness of your kitchen towels. You can also use citric acid instead of vinegar. It is also recommended to mix it with the powder. Pay attention to the washing temperature: the maximum permissible mark is 40 degrees.

By the way, light towels made of natural fabrics can be boiled with table salt or baking soda. These products will not only make the textiles clean but also perfectly disinfect them. Pour water into a saucepan and after boiling, add 2-3 tablespoons of salt or baking soda to the boiling water. Then immerse the towels and leave them to boil over low heat for 20 minutes. Next, soak the towels in cold water. If desired, you can wash them in the usual way.

In addition, hydrogen peroxide will help with stains. How to use it correctly and in what proportions to mix it with detergent - read the article.
