I have a sheepskin I use for my 3 month old to sleep on sometimes and play on sometimes and... it's getting funky. How do I clean and care for it? Any tips appreciated!
care of sheepskin?
Woolite is actually not good at all for wool (from what I hear from the true yarnies, and afterall, they're mostly talking about wool). I just used what I had. Some HE compatible "free"-type liquid detergent. I've washed it twice and it has been just fine. Also, if it's just getting funky, since it's wool, have you tried just laying it out in the open air? Or is it that it has it gotten a little baby burp juice, etc. on it, by this point and could use a real wash? I do have actual wool wash, and if you want to go that route, I'd recomment Eucalan. Good luck!
We use eucalan to wash our woolies and sheepskins...we fill the tub of the washing machine with warm or cold water (not hot), add the eucalan, then stop the machine. We then put the wool stuff in, do a hand wash to agitate any dirty spots, then let them sit for 30 mins. Next, turn the knob to the spin cycle to spin the water out. Hang dry.
I would not recommend using the dryer.
