After a day of cleaning, dishcloths can sometimes have an unpleasant smell.
In a social media group with over 600,000 members, one user asked how to neutralise the smell of dishcloth.
They asked: “After you’ve washed up at night, any tips on stopping the dishcloth smelling like a sewer?
Another user commented: “Soak in bleach cold water overnight.”
Another said: “Put it in bleach every night and in the day if I’ve been using it.”
Another cleaning fan said: “Soak in hot water in sink, drop of fairy liquid, some bleach for at least an hour.”
Another cleaning fan replied: “It’s the bacteria and organic matter making it smell.
“Also, if you leave it lying on the sink wet overnight they can get a damp, stinky smell.
“Soak it in Zoflora or a detergent to kill the germs like people suggest.
“Or sometimes I just change for a new and throw the dirty one in the wash.”
