Do you rinse your woolies after eucalan?

First time washing woolies...

It says it's not necessary, but I have a lot of pieces in the sink and they are not all new/clean.

I was thinking rinse, then lanolise in rinse water?

WWYD?

I don't rinse. I think it would wash away the lanolin that you are trying to get into the fibers.

I use Eucalan for over a year and never rinsed. If your woolies are dirty (dirt, stinky, food, etc), give them a gentle scrub with Castille soap (I have used Dr. Bronners and Kiss My Face Bar) and warm running water before you wash and lanolize with Eucalan.

I never wash Eucalen but FYI it tends to cause more bleeding than other wool washes so beware when you wash woolies together just in case. Welcome to wool

Thanks! I did notice a little color to the water but it didn't seem to transfer to anything.

What do you use instead?

Eucalan has lanolin in it, so it's one step wash and lanolize product? Score!

My understanding is that it's not really enough lanolin on it's own to waterproof your woolies. So you still need to laniolize in another step.
