Eucalan Wool Wash the most popular and inexpensive way to wash wool covers. It is also called Eucalan Delicate Wash. It restores some lanolin with each washing. Easy to use because it's easy to measure, unlike the soap, where you have to guess until you get a feel for how much to use. If you are machine washing a merino wool blanket, you need a liquid lanolin-enriched wool wash like this. In my 20 years of washing wools, Eucalan is the best overall of the many brands I, Karen, have tried. I don't trust my lovely wools to anything else. (One tea tree scented wash essentially ruined a wool blanket for me because the smell never goes away and it made it scratchy too. I'll stick with trusty Eucalan which keeps my wool soft and lovely.)
It's perfect for hand washing your wool covers. Some customers say they never relanolize when they use Eucalan, but it is possible that extra lanolin could be needed, but it depends on the wool and personal preference. This is far superior to grocery store wool washes, which strip the lanolin off the covers and cause them to leak. Please don't use those on your lovely wools. Use a proper wool wash such as Eucalan. Which scent to choose? That is personal preference mostly, except that the Eucalyptus is a natural moth and flea inhibitor, so if you have moths, get Eucalyptus. The scented versions are scented with pure and natural essential oils, not synthetic fragrance. The scents are very mild. Learn how to wash wool. Even more detailed and complete information is in the free GMD How To Booklet which you can request when you order.
Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash is non-toxic, biodegradable, free of optical brighteners, phosphates, synthetic fragrance and dye. Eucalan is pH neutral and is packaged in an easy to recycle, dye free HDPE plastic bottle. Scented varieties of Eucalan use only quality essential oils. The lanolin acts as a natural conditioner, keeping fibres supple and reducing static. Eucalan meets strict European regulations, it is "quickly" biodegradable.
Eucalan Ingredient List:
3.3 fl oz. Small
16.9 fl. oz. Large
0.17 fl. oz One-wash. If hand washing one or two wool covers, you'll probably get 2 washes from this little size. It is enough to get you started.
TBH I wasn't sure what to expect. I am currently in the process of switching over from PUL diaper covers to wool and I found that the Eucalan Wash was easy enough to use to initially lanolize my diaper covers. Still trying to figure out whether my kid is just a particularly heavy wetter or if i need lanolizing tablets in addition to this soap, so i can't speak for the lanolizing but it washes well enough for when they'll need a wash. Also, get the small one if you're not sure, you really don't need that much of it and if you're using the wool diapers properly, they don't need to be washed often.
Thank you for your review. This product is for washing wool and for using along with pure lanolin to relanolize a diaper cover. It will not lanolize alone. You will need a pure lanolin to lanolize. What makes a Disana Wool Pull On leakproof is not lanolizing but felting.

[Eucalyptus] Smells fresh & not overly powerful!!
I have the Eucalyptus scented wool wash and the smell is amazing. I don't even have to rinse the wool! A very good product :)
This product is great for washing wools by hand. I follow Karen’s advice and rinse a few times. Gently squeeze out excess water and then finish getting the water out by rolling the diaper covers between one or two towels. From there they air dry and feel nice and clean. I’ve been using this wool wash on my woolen diapers for many years.
Followed the directions wool has kept baby dry!
