i've just lanolised my wool wraps for the first time. how much is too much?<br><br>
if it feels slightly greasy to the touch, and i'm able to feel but not visually see any grease on my skin (eg can rub my hands together and get slightly moisturised) from touching the wrap, is that too much lanolin?<br><br>
i put a pea sized blob of pure lanolin in hot water for 2 M wool wraps...
Here's what I do:<br><br>
Fill sink with cool to warm water and soak wool cover. Add a pea size drop of lanolin to a cup of HOT water along with a drop of baby soap. Shake or stir the mixture until lanolin is dissolved and pour into sink. Allow the cover to soak for at least 20 minutes. If the soaker feels sticky, re-soak in a sink full of hot water to dissolve the lanolin.<br><br>
You can also use wool buddies or spray lanolin.

You spray them once they are washed and completly dryed (or whenever you feel they need it).
Yes, wool does need to be lanolized before use. You can even us the lansinoh that hospitals often give out. I had a ton of that stuff. I put about a 1/2 inch squirt in a cup of boiling water w/ a tiny dot of dish soap--shake it hard to mix it (we use a canning jar), then add it to my sink of wool wash... mix well, then put my wool back in and let the wool sit for 10+ minutes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> HTHs.
