whats the best way to wash them?

If I put them in washing machine I think thats a bit manky as its not washing hot enough. (40)

But then if I boil them in a pot I think uuugh at the pot.

Do you mean dish cloths? For wiping down surfaces? I wash all my bedding and towels at 60 so through them in with them. My sister bleaches hers.

I "throw" them not "through" them! I can read and write properly honestly!

I also pop mine in with towels and bedding on a 60C wash

dishclothes get washed at at least 60degrees in machine here. 90 of they are particularly dirty. Have also put nappy soak in with the wash to whiten them, which is antibacterial as well so does a good job of cleaning them i think!

I just wash them at 40°C in the washing machine. Have done for years.

Thanks ok I think I will stick with 40 then, I wash everything on that anyway so cant be bothered doing a special 60 wash for them
