How Can I Get Rid of Stains on Colorful Dishtowels?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I have plenty of loved colorful kitchen towels. After some use, they naturally obtain spots and splotches from food, drink. I run them through the washer and dryer but nothing seems to work to get rid of stains. Is there hope for my colorful towels? Or am I doomed to bleach-able whites or “screw-it” tie-dyes?
