Getting BF poo out of my wool

How do I get BF poo out of my Loveybums wool jersey covers? I washed the cover in wool wash and started scrubbing a little bit but got scared that I would end up felting a small part of the cover.
Help!

Re: Getting BF poo out of my wool

I am wondering the same thing, Miles just pooed all over our Babyology longies and I can't get the stain out I tried my wool bar too, no luck.

I usually just scrub them with my wool wash bar and rinse. Then, if it doesn't come off I scrub some more and leave it in the sink for half hour or so. Usually the stain comes off.

rinse with cold water ( sink)

Then spot clean with a wool wash bar.

Rinse with cold water.

Then wash normally, re-lanolize if needed.

I wondered about that-would it lighten dyed wool- my ds soiled his brand new WCW-the only wool I had ever bought new-but I had some luck with a woolwash bar and soaking for a longer time- the stain faded and the wool is fine

We don't normally wash our wool with baby shampoo b/c it removes the lanolin. However, if you soak with baby shampoo (and rub gently with your fingers) the BF poo should come right out. You'll have to re-lanolize afterwards, but it works!

I used a bar of wool soap to scrub the spot. It worked really well and did not felt the spot. Your LB is probably already felted anyway

We sun our wool and the stains come right out. I have never had any problems with the colors being ruined by the UV bleaching--not even the kool-aid dyed stuff.
