This organic liquid wool wash from Sudz 'n Dudz is made with the highest quality, organic ingredients and scented only with essential oils. This concentrated wool wash liquid has a silky creamy texture to it. It is mild and gentle to your wool, and of course, enriched with just the right amount of lanolin! Since the wool wash is enriched with lanolin, the frequency of lanolizing is reduced. The liquid is great for using on wool that just needs a little freshening. It will not strip the lanolin from your wool and, in fact, it will help replenish what is normally lost during washing and wearing.
The wool wash comes in beautiful 2, 4, and 8 fl. oz. amber bottles with black flip caps. 8 oz bottles come with a complimentary pump top.
Sudz 'n Dudz is a small, family-run business based in Alaska. This lovely business has been creating high quality organic soaps and wool care products since 2005. Sudz 'n Dudz uses only essential oils for scenting their products, and certified organic lanolin imported from Australia for the wool wash bars and solid lanolin. No synthetic fragrances are used. The ingredients are sourced domestically whenever possible, and when necessary, the company purchases internationally from companies known and certified for their ecologically sound practices and their ethical treatment, payment, and care of the people, the land, and the animals that provide them.
About the ingredients:
EO is an abbreviation for essential oil. Because ALL fragrance oils (even the ones that claim to be "natural") are solvent-based, synthetic chemicals that cause damage to your wool, to the environment, and to your health, Sudz 'n Dudz will not use them to scent their products.
Use and Care:
First, rinse your wool with lukewarm water. You may apply the liquid wool wash directly to stains before washing. Plug the drain and run tepid water into your sink, washing machine, or wash bucket and add about a teaspoon of wool wash per quart of water/per garment. The water will appear milky and will have a film on the topÖthatís the lanolin. Place your wool, turned inside-out into the wash water. Soak, swirl, or gently swish your wool cover or soaker in the water and let it rest as long as you like. Drain the water through the wool so the lanolin is neatly deposited on the fibers. Rinse in cool water.
Store upright in a cool, dry place with the disc cap completely closed. Be sure the inside of the cap is clean. Caked up soap will prevent the cap from clicking entirely shut and may cause leaking. Lanolin, essential iols, and/or insoluble soap solids may settle or separate after periods of unuse. Shake well to redistribute before use.
Rinsing & Soaking:
RINSE, RINSE, RINSE! Before washing because it cleans off the caustic urine salts that are coating the wool which dry the fibers and make it stinky which is why you are washing in the first place! After, because the cleaning/lanolizing you just gave it will last longer without soap residue sitting there, interfering with the natural abilities of the wool or turning rancid (and smelly) from exposure to urine. Rinsing with cool (but not COLD) water is best as warm water will melt and wash away the lanolin.
DO NOT SOAK! Once the water is cool, the wool fibers are no longer "open" and receiving any benefit from either the lanolin or the soap. Furthermore, water is NOT a friend to natural fibers. Water/moisture facilitates decomposition, and if you want your wool (and your cloth diapers) to last, you should minimize their exposure to moisture.
Lavender(French)EO: French lavender's aroma is the truest most floral of all lavenders. Slightly herbaceous with woody undertones it is a classic scent for baby.
