Wool requires different care than other diaper fabrics. However, it need not be washed frequently, as the natural lanolin in wool neutralizes urine. A wool cover may only need to be washed once or twice a month.
To wash wool, run lukewarm water into a sink or dishpan, add wool wash, gently work the soapy water through your covers, and leave to soak for at least ten minutes. Do not rinse. Wrap the covers in a towel and squeeze out excess moisture, then lay flat to dry. Occasionally, you may wish to add extra lanolin to the wash water, or use a lanolin spray, to help restore waterproofing to your covers.
Washing wool can actually be enjoyable, with the many wonderfully scented soaps available for the task. Eucalan woolwash is a reliable favorite. Sudz 'n Dudz offers bar soaps, liquid, lanolin spray, and lanolin balm in a dizzying array of delicious scents.
