Lanolizing several woolies at a time?

Can I do that? I have a pretty big sink and 6 woolies, and I'd hate to do one at a time. But if I do several together, do I multiply the lanolin? Let them soak longer?

Re: Lanolizing several woolies at a time?

I was wondering the same thing today and trying to figure out the logistics of successfully lanolizing a bunch of soakers and longies at once. I was thinking of using the bathtub but it's hard to estimate how much lanolin to use. I suppose measure out as much as you would use for each one individually???

I do it all the time. I just use a tsp per item (I like things sticky) and let them sit in there for a while (sometimes overnight as I forget them). I do mine in a big stock pot (or the washing machine) as I dont want the sink or bathtub to get lanolin scum in it.

A stockpot, great idea! So multiply lanolin and soak longer. I'll try that today

I almost always do 3-4 at a time in the kitchen sink.
