How to restore cleanliness and freshness to kitchen towels: washing will not help
Kitchen towels get dirty very quickly. And we have no idea how much they accumulate in their fibers. You can only notice this if you clean your kitchen textiles properly.
The Mirror magazine told us about the life hacks of experienced housewives who know how to keep kitchen towels perfectly clean. And their secret is ordinary white vinegar.
This life hack appeared in a discussion of ways to properly wash kitchen textiles on social media. One user suggested cleaning towels by boiling them with a few drops of dishwashing liquid.
However, people who have already used this method have complained that it works for grease, but does not remove other dirt well. Therefore, it is better to replace this type of soap with vinegar.
Put the towels in a large metal pot, cover them with water, and add one cup of white vinegar. Slowly bring the water to a boil, stir the contents of the pot and leave it to simmer over low heat. It is better not to boil colored towels for more than 20 minutes, while white towels can be boiled for up to an hour.
This way, you will not only clean the fibers of the fabric from which the towels are made. It will also help disinfect them. However, it is better to keep the kitchen windows open while boiling with vinegar, because the product has a specific odor.
After vinegar boiling, the towels can be washed in the usual way in a washing machine and dried in the air. This will be enough to remove any trace of the vinegar smell.
