Washing wool in a
washing machine is incredibly simple. Fill the machine
with just enough warm water to cover your wool items and
add a teaspoon of Eucalan No Rinse Fabric Wash or other
wool cleaner for each gallon of water. Soak for 1/2 hour.
Squeeze gently by hand and remove. Spin the remaining
water out. Of course, you may also use a bucket or the
kitchen sink as well. Avoid hot and cold water as they
will distress the natural wool fibers.To dry, simple wring
out excess water and either line dry or lay flat on a
towel to air dry. Never tumble dry. If you notice your
wool diaper product is leaking, you may need to lanolize
it. Simply put one to two drops of pure lanolin in a basin
of hot water. Dunk your wool and saturate for 15-20 minutes.
Wring out excess water and roll in a towel to remove as
much water as possible. Hang dry. Lanolizing your wool
covers should usually be done once a month.
