I just got my first wool cover (Stacinator) from a trade and would like to wash and lanolize it since I'm not sure when the prior owner last did so. Is there anything I can use other than Eucalan? I'd prefer to just get something at a local store as opposed to ordering online, paying for shipping and waiting a week for it to get here.

I did read somewhere that I can use Lansinoh for lanolizing, but don't know the details. Do I just melt it in hot water, then cool the water before soaking? And how long do I soak it for?

Thanks for any suggestions.

You can wash it with some baby shampoo then to lanolize melt lanolin in the microwave with some water and a squirt of baby shampoo and let it soak in the lanolin for an hour or so. HTH

I like Kookaburra too. But that is only online or a lys, probably. You might want to call them or check out their web site www.kookaburraco.com to see if they can tell you somewhere locally.
I don't like the ones with the solid lanolin, it gets stuck in the spout, then I have to squeeze to get it out and get a whle bunch more of soap too which I didn't need. But Doodlebottoms sure does smell good (tea tree scent)
