I prefer that to sink as it gets out more water when it spins and then they dry faster, but you can always spin out in washer after you take out of sink too!!!!. I lanolize myself every 4, 6 or 8 weeks as that is how often I wash my covers and by that time they are needing both.
Mine is pretty much the same routine as Carey-Anne.... I don't use wool wash though. Since I go 4-6 weeks between washes I need something a tad stronger, I use 1/4 cup Castile soap or baby shampoo, then I add my lanolin mixture to the rinse cycle and stop it to soak for 30 minutes.
