This right here. If you don't like bleach vinegar is a more natural detergent. I use vinegar to wash all our dog's blankets in hot water. No extra rinse needed. Plus it helps clean and disinfect the washing machine. I also use it to wash all our towels in hot water of course, gets rid of the bacteria that cause the wet smell and keeps them soft too.

I put them over a piece of 2 1/2 inch Pvc pipe to hold them open and use the hose to wash them.
