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 19 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 the 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 natural oils not synthetic fragrance. The scents are very mild. Learn how to wash wool.

I have to agree with the other reviewers, this wool wash is great. My daughters soakers and wool clothing smells wonderful after use and it's faster than a woolly wash bar.
This stuff smells awesome. This stuff does not irritate my very sensitive skin.
Just ordered some to use with a Disana cover. I love the eucalyptus - it's a mild but clean scent. Also you only use a half-capful so it will last a very long time. I am new to wool but am very happy with it!
I purchased the lavender & I love the scent; it lingers nicely on the wool. I can tell that it is true essential oil & not a synthetic fragrance which I greatly appreciate. Washes nicely. A high quality product.
This is my only wool wash. I have used it for six years now--since my youngest was an infant wearing Disana shorts over Clotheez prefolds. I love that it contains eucalyptus to keep wool and silk from being eaten. Now I use it for all my winter wools and silks. Tip: For storing, place your wools and silks in a zippered cotton bag with a cedar sachet for additional protection.
