What wool wash do you recommend?

I would love to use one that had lanolin already in it, so I don't have to deal with melting solid lanolin and worrying about spots. I'm new to this, so maybe I'll get braver with time and try that later!

Also, how do you sanitize/prep/wash used wool?

TIA mamas!

I like Euclan wool wash personally; it has lanolin in it but I still lanolize new wool.

I don't think there's any way to sanitize wool but it's supposed to be naturally anti microbial, I believe.

I use CJs but in general you need to add solid lanolin to your wash to get the protection you need. It really isn't as hard as you would think, I promise. I was scared at first too.

Sloomb has tutorials on how:

Thanks so much for these! And the reassurance I have ordered some CJs from a diaper party I had yesterday, but I am definitely going to check out that co-op!!!

Re: What wool wash do you recommend?

I love Naturally Luxe, but they are closing their store. They may still have some wool wash available though. You can choose the scent and oh my they smell soooo good!! You'll have to lanolize new wool no matter what, but a wool wash with lanolin can help delay time between lanolizing once it's fully prepped.

I use CJs or Eucalan but find also adding solid lanolin (i like Woolybottoms Love Spell) gives us the bullet proof protection we need
