Most people have a couple dish towels hanging in their kitchen and we don't realize how quickly these towels can start to smell like mildew. We use dish towels after washing dishes, after washing our hands, drying dishes and glasses, wiping countertops, and even for cleaning up spills. Since we use dish towels so often, they are usually not given enough time in between uses to dry adequately. When we continue to use dish towels over and over again without washing, germs build up and the dish towels begin to smell funky.
