How do dispose of towels with dried Holy Water on them?

An unusal question I know. I usher at church and when the Priest blesses the congregation with holy water it sometimes gets on the floors to point of being a potental safety issue so we have soaked the holy water up with towels. How should we dispose of these towels now? Thanks for your help.

If a towel has been used to dry an area with holy water, you can simply leave the towel in an appropriate place for the water to evaporate from it. Once the towel is dry it can be washed in the usual manner.
