I am a little confused too. I am anticipating using wool on my newborn. I will use Charlies soap for diapers & Charlies company themselves told me i should wash wool covers in Charlies & then use a lanolizing product, like a wool wash bar for daily leaks. Then do a more complete lanolize monthly or so. They said i need to use charlies first or i will be lanolizing on top of "hazardess materials"....? And the lanolin wont stick as well if its not clean (which charlies thinks can only be done with charlies). Anybody? The lady at GMD told me Charlies ph is too high for wool. Why is this so complicated? Why the conflicting info? Sometimes i hear of lanolizing not working so well.so i thought maybe just maybe, this could be why?
