  1. I find nappyshan or Janola works well. You don’t need a lot. I soak the dishcloths in it and then tip the remainder down the waste disposal to disinfect that.

      That’s a great idea, but do be wary of chlorine bleach as it doesn’t break down in the environment. Go for an oxygen bleach instead.
