It's also happens to my Cushie Tushie by Dana. These are my 2 thickest wool and I use them for overnight. Well, the Aristocrat was soiled and the other was beginning to smell. So, I washed them in DoodleBottoms wool wash. I swish them around and squeeze the water through the crotch and then let them soak about 15 minutes. It takes them forever to dry--it's been 2 days and still not dry, but I think that's bc it's very humid here with LOTS of rain. Anyway, now that they're partially dry, they smell in the crotch area of stale urine. I feel like I'm going to have to scrub the area, but I don't want to felt them. I usually use a WOW bar--do I need to use more soap? Am I washing it incorrectly? Do they need to be lanolized (although this is the first time I've washed the Aristocrat). Any ideas?
