Keeping this in view, should dish towels be washed separately?

Wash heavily-soiled dish towels separately. According to Gagliardi, for germ-infested kitchen and bathroom items like mop heads, dish towels, and cleaning cloths, wash them as a separate load from regular laundry. The only exception is if you have maybe one or two dirty dish towels or cloths.

Similarly, how do I stop my dish towels from smelling? Add 1 cup of white vinegar and your dish rags to the water. Do not add soap. Boil the cloths for 15 minutes to kill odors and bacteria, mold, and mildew. Turn the heat off and let the dishcloths and liquid cool to room temperature.

Additionally, where do you keep your kitchen towels?

Keep dish towels in a cabinet close to the cleanup zone. Use a pullout towel rack with more than one bar to air-dry and store towels.

Is it bad to wash kitchen towels with bath towels?

When washing towels and clothing together, don't use fabric softener. While good for your clothes, they can leave a film on kitchen towels, which makes them unsanitary for regular use. Kitchen towels can also collect soap from washing dishes and hands. Rinse and dry thoroughly before adding to the wash.
