2 tried and true methods for getting stains out of your woolie


February 16, 2011

It happens.  Baby poops, leaks through the diaper and sets into your precious wool cover. Follow these steps to remove those stains from your beautiful wool cover.

 

OPTION 1: Wash with a wool bar

  • Rinse the wool in lukewarm water to remove any urine residue
  • Fill your sink about halfway with lukewarm water
  • Place your wool item in the sink
  • Rub the wool wash bar directly on the stained area
  • Gently swish & squish the wool to work the soap through the fibers
  • Soak overnight
  • Rinse the wool in room temperate water to remove the soap residue
  • Gently squeeze (do not twist or wring) to remove the excess water
  • Lay wool flat to dry

OPTION 2: Treat with lemon juice and sun

  • Mix ½ cup of lemon juice with ½ cup of water
  • Pour directly on the stain
  • Place wool on a flat surface (do not hang) in the sun for up to 4 hours
  • Wash using your usual wool wash routine

NOTE: This option may cause your colored wool to fade. Test a hidden area of the wool first or try Option 1 shown above.
