Do you disinfect your towels? You wipe yourself (all those "parts" of you) and then you let the towel sit there to slowly air dry. Over time, it must get nasty -- same with facecloths and hand towels. So how do you clean the towels of any bacteria? Is throwing them in the washer (bacteria and germs love warmth and moisture) and dryer enough, really?

My mom used to boil the facecloths and hand towels in a pot on the stove for a long time, to make sure all the nasties were killed. I figure that's great for those small items, but what do you do with a large bath towel (many of which are even "oversized")??
