Get yourself a bar of WoW from <a href="http://www.monkeysudz.com" target="_blank">www.monkeysudz.com</a> - I'm not sure what they've got instock but OMG! anything you get will smell heavenly!!! You also need to make sure you lanolize your cover so it will be optimally water-resistant <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I highly recommend their lanolin spray.<br><br>
So whatcha do is, lather up the bar and, after dunking the cover in lukewarm water, rub the cover all over with the lather. Sometimes I use the bar directly on the covers. Then rinse a bit with more lukewarm water. Roll the sucker up in a thirsty towel to squeeze out the excess water, then spray with the lanolin spray (or do a regular lanolin dunking treatment). Rub the lanolin in real nice like, then lay flat to dry! Voila! Wool delish!

I like the LANA Lanolin Soap. It replenishes the lanolin content of natural wool products, keeping the wool fresh and hygienic. The high lanolin content, 20%, is higher than in other wool-washes. It may be used on any woolen product.

I prefer the lana bella bars over the LANA because they are 45% lanolin, and definitly do a super job lanolizing without OVER lanolizing the covers. No need for additional lanolizing with it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
