Sour Smelling Dish Rags

I am constantly washing my dish rags. I absolutely hate cleaning anything with a dirty rag. There are a few solutions to this problem. 

 Pour one tablespoon of non-bleach liquid dish soap and three cups of white vinegar into a clean sink or bucket. Soak the sour-smelling dishcloth in the liquids for about an hour. Rinse thoroughly. Wring the excess liquid from the dishcloth then toss in the washing machine and wash as normal.  

The next thing you can do to kill nasty smelling bacteria growing on your sponges and rags is to put them in the microwave for two minutes. Microwaving sponges and rags kills deadly germs and bacteria, such as E-coli. Sometimes, the process leaves the microwave smelling horrible afterwards.
