So there is a bit of pooh on my wool cover. Can I use Dr. Bronners to wash it? I think years ago I used woolite or babywash.... Is using baby wash crazy? Thanks.

I use this:


I read somewhere that woolite is too harsh on wool diapers. If I had to choose between baby bath soap and woolite, I think I'd go with the baby wash!

I had heard the dr bronners wasn't good for cd's or covers. I have heard that you can pretty much use any other soap that you would use on your baby though (that's what I do) so no need to spend lots of money.

Dr Bronners should be fine for wool (though I agree not to use it for PUL covers or diapers). I use Euclan. I spot wash poop spots unless it is time to wash the stash. Lots of people use baby shampoo which makes sense since wool is just hair.
