I live in an apartment, and don't have my own washer or dryer. I use the coin-op machines in the laundry room of the apartment complex. I wash on "hot" setting, but the water is really only warm (and sometimes just barely).

So that why I wondered if I could boil the washcloths and dishcloths separately in the microwave to sterilize them. Currently, I hand wash them separately, which seems to get them cleaner than not doing so, but they still get an unpleasant odor to them, when they get damp. I'm going to try boiling some of them and see what happens.

Same with underwear. I could try a pair or two and see what that does to the elastic.

So I wondered if anyone knows how well this will work -- of if there's any compelling reason why I shouldn't try this?
