Bicarbonate absorbs odours very well and leaves everything without traces of dirt. Then fill a bucket with warm soapy water, submerge the towel and rub it repeatedly to remove the accumulated dirt. Remove all baking soda paste and dirt that comes off and rinse with cold water, you can add a few drops of lemon to each towel once they are clean to enjoy a pleasant fresh smell.
