I intuitively would want to wash something that was peed on, that is for sure.
I have never used wool shorties, longies or the mattress covers, but I did read that some people do not wash them every time, which seems odd to me. The claim is that somehow the wool keeps dry and does not smell and only needs to be washed occassionally. I am not sure how it works, but am very interested in learning.
I have been working to get rid of synthetics where i can, it is difficult indeed and not possible to go 100% natural, but I am trying.
Maybe tomorrow I will go take a look at the store to see if there are new materials being used for mattress covers. I have read that EVA and PEVA are new plastics that do not off-gas. I bought some PEVA shower curtains and they have no smell at all.
Have you had a chance to look at them yet? If so, what did you find out? If you haven't had a chance yet, i will share what i learn.
