Charis 'N Ewe Lanolin-Rich Wool Wash - Unscented
Lanolize your wool diaper items in one easy step, with our high-lanolin content wool wash. This conditions your woolies and leaves behind a pleasant scent (or no scent at all, if you choose unscented). Scent descriptions can be found here.
LANOLIN LEVEL: MEDIUM - Sufficient for many wool users for day-time lanolizing, and for some interlock users to use with overnight diapering. No need for a separate lanolin bath.
Instructions: Draw a warm water bath in a tub or sink, and add roughly a tablespoon of wash per gallon of water, per item. You may find you prefer more or less. Add your clean woolens (wash with a lanolin-free product before hand), inside out, and allow to soak for 15-40 minutes, depending on the number of items you wish to lanolize. Remove items (no rinsing) and gently roll items in a towel, pressing to remove excess moisture, before air drying. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IN A WASHING MACHINE.
**ALWAYS Spot color test hand-dyed items prior to use. Product has not been reported to create bleeding in hand-dyed items, however all water tables are different, with seasonal variation.**
About Lanolin Production:
Lanolin is what gives wool diaper covers their waterproofing, and urine neutralizing properties.
Sheep need to be sheared to keep them comfortable in hot weather and to keep their coats from becoming a tangled mess. The sheared wool is processed to remove the lanolin (a natural wax on the sheep's fleece), which is further refined to become used in skin care, etc; Contrary to some claims, sheep are not killed to produce lanolin or wool.
THESE PRODUCTS ARE INTENDED FOR USE ON WOOL DIAPER COVERS. Products are manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat, oats, tree nuts (coconut) and milk on shared equipment.
