WOOL MAMAS HELP!! SOS! HELP!! WOOL MAMAS!!!

UGHHHH I just got my first woolies a few days ago.. they came lanolized so I was able to put them right on DD and use them this week.. of course DD just had a BLOW OUT. She hasn't had one yet in her lifetime and there is poop all over it.. I have no idea how to get it off!! I've read 100 101's on how to wash wool diapers but nothing about how to get poop off them!

Rinse like crazy and get as much off as you can first. Then soak in wool wash (or baby shampoo) and spot treat with a wool wash bar if you have it.

That's what I've done and it worked.

Yes! And I have even put mine in the sun for a very short time to get the last little bit of stains out.

I've scrubbed with a wool wash bar any time there is poo on longies. It has always worked for me so it is a good investment.

Get a bar of olive oil soap (it is also called castille soap)! I love Kiss my face Olive oil soap, and they sell it at several different health food/organic market stores here locally. Rub it on the poop, scrub it a little and rinse, and you can soak a little if the poop is deep in the fibers. It should take it right out, but if there is staining sun it out.

I wouldn't suggest very cold water if they are knit. You don't want the temp. change to felt them. Do it in room temp. water for the sake of the beautiful knits.
....I've always rinsed it right off and washed like usual and it's been fine...

Yep, use warm water and scrub! If I don't have a wool wash bar, I'll use a cloth with wool wash on it.

Re: WOOL MAMAS HELP!! SOS! HELP!! WOOL MAMAS!!!

I use interlock wool and have some self made crocheted wool too... I had blowouts until I started using fitteds. I get off what I can in the sink (I'm assuming this is EBF baby poo) and wash it down the drain (I use COLD water on my interlock, room temp on the crochet). Then I scrub it with a wool wash bar in cool water (cool or cold for my interlock, COOL - not cold, not warm - for the crochet).

That usually gets it all out and is clean. I may spray that area with a little spray lanolin too, but it's not really necessary since the wool wash bar has tons of lanolin in it.
