What do you do when you buy used wool products? I'm getting some wool wash, but is that enought to really sanitize them? Could I add tto to the wash?

Wool has antibacterial properties anyway so I don't think sanitizing it is as much of an issue as it is with actual diapers. I've only bought a few used wool pieces and I just washed them well with my wool wash and then lanolized. I figure it you wash them well, it will get the pee out....not sure about the tto?

I would suggest stripping the fibers with Dawn. That will remove the lanolin and any other oils or dirt on the wool.<br><br>
Afterwards you will need to lanolize your wool very well.<br><br>
Dawn is not something you want to use on wool very offen though.

Just use a little Dawn, like 1/4 tsp should do it.<br><br>
When you are finished make sure it is completely rinsed out and lanolize it. You won't need to add any more soap.
