GMD mentions washing and lanolizing at least twice with disana, and washing first with an olive oil bar. ? Sounds a little complicated for me. I bought the wool soap and lansinoh. By twice does she mean wash with lansinoh and soap, dry, and repeat? ??? Or just rinse with the wool soap, then fill sink with the lansinoh and soap, soak, then turn inside out adn refill and soak?<br><br>

I don't know about the whole olive oil bar thing. I did have to lanolize mine twice though before they really started working well. I just disolved an inch of lansinoh in a cup of hot water with a squirt of dr.bronners and poured that into a bowl of warm water and then soaked the pants for a while. That's how I wash all my wool.<br><br>
So...yes I lanolized it once, waited for it to dry, tried it overnight and had leaks. Lanolized it a second time, waited for it to dry, tried it again and they worked great. They have gotten more and more bulletproof over time. Wool definitely isn't instant gratification, LOL.
