Wool wash for wool newbie
 
Eucalan or Lanacare??

Would prefer something simple given it'll be my first time or so dealing with wool covers. I think both contain lanolin, right??

Eucalan doesn't require rinsing. The Lanacare bottle I read the other day does.

I'm digging Sloomb cubes right now. I have Eucalan & the no rinse is easy but it doesn't have enough lanolin to fully lanolize. The Sloomb cube takes out stains really quick, fully lanolizes w/o spotting, & smells great.

I watched the you tube tutorial on sbish's website. Looks easy but you still have to wash first, right?? I may give them a try.

Ah... I should have added... Eucalan doesn't majorly lanolize. But on pre lanolized items I find its adequate. I used Imse Vimse Wool wraps, which are machine washable, and accidentally went through a hot wash with the diapers. I never had to truly lanolize, just used Eucalan.

Eucalan has caused bleeding for a lot of people. I use Aveeno baby wash and then lanolize with melted solid lanolin. Takes me a half hour. There's a great tutorial out there. Let me see if I can find it...
