Everyone uses a dishcloth to clean the tableware, but as a cleaning tool that stays in a humid environment for a long time and is stained with oil, the growth of bacteria is very fast! Perhaps the surface of the dish cloth is not very oily, but the bacterial content may be very high. If you use this dish cloth to wash dishes, it may affect your health. Therefore, the dish cloth must be sterilized after being used for a long time. Here is how to sterilize the dish cloth!Method one:
