Thank you, you help a lot!
Yes, that's it exactly....the small amount of soap that is in wool wash, wool wash bars, and wool wash bits, helps to "break up" the lanolin, so it distributes well in the water, and can be sprayed out rather than clumping up in the bottle, and clogging up the little "hose".
And, before I got the wool wash bits, I used little shavings of wool wash bar, so I think that would work great! Just the lansinoh tube lanolin, and then the shavings/little chunk off the wool wash bar, and shake it up in hot water.

The hot water causes the lanolin to melt, but like I said, you really need it MORE than just melted...you need it "broken up" so it can be completely mixed with your water in the bottle and spray out easily.
I will actually microwave my spray bottle (unscrew the spray lid, just do the bottle)...for a little bit to re-melt any lanolin if I haven't used it in awhile, and then replace the lid/spray handle, and shake it up again, and you're good to go!

Thank you so much! I'll try that! Just one more question: what kind of bottle do you use?

Re: Lanolin spray?

does your eucalan not have lanolin in it? i ordered some thinking it was just wash, but when it arrived i noticed the label says "lanolin enriched" i was hoping to use the eucalan to wash woolies in the washer, and then do a lanolizing soak in the sink with my monkeyfarts but i don't want to overlanolize, so i just used dawn in the washer and then soaked as regular to lanolize. i do have to use spray lanolin on one pair of our woolies though, they do fine in the wash but bled when i tried to soak them so i just sprayed them on the inside all around the body/wet zone areas.
