Overlanolized wool?

I put too much lanolin in when I was washing my longies( I usually don't put enough) and now they're way too sticky. Is there anything I can do???

I've done it, I just used them sticky, lol. I would assume you could just wash them a couple times, squeezing out the water in a towel in between washes.

As far as I know the word is to wash and lanolize it again, this time using less lanolin.

I just have Carter wear them, I usually can't even tell within a couple of wearings.

I just noticed you have a Carter too (now I am having deja vu thinking I have already talked to you about this )

Anyway - I have done this a few times. I just used them for a while and at the next wash used less lanolin.

It won't hurt your wool, but it it is bothersome, you can strip it back out with a bit of dishwashing liquid, they start again lanolizing, using less of course. And oh, try to avoid colored dishwashing detergents (unless it is the same color), because the dyes in the detergent could adhere to light colored wool turning it a pale hue of whatever the soap is
