How to Lanolize Wool Diaper Covers, Soakers, and Longies1. Rinse wool covers under running water to remove urine and/or feces.
2. Fill the kitchen or bathroom sink with room temperature water and a few tablespoon of Eucalan Woolwash. (Estimate is for lanolizing 4-6 wool covers). If you are using pure lanolin, you may need to melt it in the microwave first.
3. Put the wool in the sink and swish around for a few minutes. Let them soak for 30 minutes.
4. Remove wool and gently press to squeeze out excess water. Roll in a towel to dry further. Do not wring them out!
5. Hang wool to dry, or lay on a towel in a warm, dry place.
Lanolizing is often done once a month to help keep wool in tip top shape and to make sure it keeps repelling moisture so that baby's clothing stays dry.
