I love the way this Etsy seller displays hers. Very simple. https://www.etsy.com/listing/201927027/crochet-dishcloth-crochet-washcloth?ref=user_profile

I would soak all in vinegar to set the colors first, then I would wash them without scent. I would not be able to buy them if they had scent. I made about a dozen cloths that I am using instead of wash cloths in the bathroom. I gave each a vinegar bath and have washed them several times and they look really good. I would look on Pinterest for presentation ideas.

If you are doing a set consider rolling them attractively or standing them on end and tying with a pretty ribbon.

My DH and I never go in Hallmark stores because we almost need spacesuits....ditto for heavily scented malls. Please don't add scent. A simple binding with attached washing instructions works well. You can also have cheap wooden basket weave bowls to display them.

This is exactly what I would do - they look so nice all tied together.
I, also would skip the scent - what one person likes another may find offensive.

Little stacks of cloths tied with grosgrain ribbon always make for a nice presentation...skip adding scent of any kind though. You can also roll cloths into flowers or shape them into bunnies.

I would stay away from any fabric softeners. Personally, I don't think they are good for us to breath in. If you're looking for a pleasant scent, I would try putting a bowl of cinnamon scented pine cones on your table or bars of gently scented bars of soaps. Nothing too overpowering.

If your wash cloths are cotton, do not use fabric softener. Softeners are made with silicone ... I heard the president of Cannon towels once, on a tv talk show, and he said that the silicone kills the absorbency of the cotton. Kinda kills the point of 'thirsty' cotton towels, doesn't it. They will just push the water around.
I never use fabric softener with natural fibers .... but for fleece sweats, it is great. I can live with less fluffy towels ...
I also hate dryer sheets .... they leave a coating on my clothes.

There are some great ideas here! I agree to skip the softener and any scent.

Quick soak in Eucalin, squeeze out excess and pin out to block. Eucalin comes in a few fragrances, but they are very subtle. I display or gift with handmade soaps. If you are selling I would group in sets and tie with ribbon or cord.

I have done many washcloths for church bazaars. I fold them and then run a ribbon through the corners to tie two of them together. You could also fold them and put them in little sandwich baggies--again, two fills the baggy nicely.

Skip the scented fabric softener, many folks have problems with scents.

As others have said don't use anything scented.....for your craft space don't try and cram everything together keep it best and tidy, if you don't have space for everything leave it off the table and top up with more when you sell items....look at how to fold a few nicely but keep some out to show the size etc

Good luck hope it all goes well for you

Being a bit quirky, could you string a line and pin them on there like a clothes line. Or maybe attach them to a wreath form.

Are you planning to sell individually or groups? If you have varying patterns and different colors I would want to be able to select my own pattern and color. I would not place my face cloth or dish cloth in a glass when using them at home so I would suggest stacking some so customers can go thru and just display a few rolled w/ribbon or in a glass. I would also place some small balls of yarn and needles (ones you don't mind losing) in a basket or bowl along with a cloth draped over the end and outside the container showing beginning to end. Place cards with contact information for future customers in a small bowl in front. Also a few fancy bars of face soap scattered randomly on the table. (You can buy these at the dollar store.) If you can find a small glass or porcelain wash bowl that would also be effective to place your cloth in.
