I knit some really cute LTK shorties for my son, in Cascade 220. I used green and white and made wide stripes. When I lanolized them, the lanolin "stained" the white stripes (it's not really stained, I guess, there are just spots of lanolin that you can see on the white). I tried running hot water right on the spots, to melt it and rinse it off, but they didn't budge. Any suggestions?

I have a cover that I got way too much lanolin in some spots. I will try the dawn thing! Thanks.

Doing some rinsing with a bit of vinegar in the rinse water can help out too. And fyi, after washing with the dawn, you might need to re-lanolize at least slightly, cause it may take a lot of the lanolin out.

It worked! It didn't come out right away, so I let it soak in there and went out for awhile. When I came back, I couldn't see the lanolin, so I rinsed it out and re-lanolized. They're drying right now and look good as new!
