I just washed my wool covers in LANA Lanolin Shampoo and they are still stinky! What can I do? Do I need a different type of wash??<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:
Try sunning them inside out. That will usually do the trick; if not, you may have to use a stronger wool wash--maybe something scented. I really like the Sudz n Dudz wool wash and wool wash bar, especially for getting rid of stinky residue. They're organic and there are over 100 essential oil scents to choose from!
I would wash them with a soap or somethign without any lanolin in it first, and then relanolize. I always do a two step wash, I just have a hard time believing they get really clean by just soaking in a lanolin rich wash, they need to be cleaned first imo. Baby shampoo or I like to use Kookaburra9I think it has a tiny bit of lanolin, but not a lot). I once washed a pair of longies in Kookaburra that I thought was permanently stained, but the K got out SOOOO much dirt. they looked new again after a couple of soaks in the K. That's what prompted me to do the 2 step wash routine from then on.
