After a bath or shower, water softens the top layer of our skin. Bath towels that we rub all over our bodies pick up these microscopic bits of skin and other flora and fauna and get trapped in the fibers. Eventually, after enough use, the fibers become overloaded with skin cells and give off a yucky smell. (The same thing will happen with dishcloths and bits of food.) This just won't go away, no matter how many times you wash them. You could try bleaching them but if they are dyed this will fade the color- and it's a temporary fix at best. Sometimes, you have to 'throw in the towel' and buy some new ones!
