Lanolin spots AGGGHHHHH!
 
I spent $70 bucks on 2 Loveybums wool covers and followed the directions to a tee and I have crazy lanolin spots! I've tried using dish soap to remove them with no luck. What can I do?? Please help! I'm so angry and already contacted the company for some advise!! Grrrrrrrrrr! :banghead:

Bump! I have one spot on my WCW soaker that aggravates me. I don't even use it anymore.

Some will wear off. If they are wraps it doesn't matter but if they are pull on always do them inside out.

I ended up soaking it in pretty hot water and hand scrubbing the stains out with method dish soap. I realize I pretty much stripped it but it helped a ton! It doesn't look all spotted anymore thank goodness! I'm going to rewash in Eucalan so its gets a little relanolized. My peanut is not a heavy wetter anyhow yet so if its not fully water proof, its ok. Ugh!

I had spots all over some longies. I'm surprised I didn't felt them getting it out. I washed and soaked and washed and soaked in dawn. You wouldn't believe how much brighter they are now :). I still need to try to re lanolize them. They will be done wrong side out next time!
