I haven't used it for wool yet, but I have used baby soap and figure it would would the same, but with a much better smell. In fact I'm supposed to leaving right now to buy some Dr. Bronner's, due to this thread.

Almond and Lavender are wonderful and the Peppermint is really a "clean" scent - not sugary - does that make sense?
It kinda smacked me in the head when I was dyeing some wool. The instructions stated to wash it first, and I had no Eucalan. Dish detergent is reputed to be too strong, and I suddenly remembered that I had a case of Dr. Bronner's in the garage.

Yes, not sugary makes perfect sense. It smells clean rather than perfumed.

What is Eucalan? I'm totally ignorant here. I thought Woolite was what I should use until I read this thread.

ack! not woolite! i have tried eucalan and actually prefer kookaburra. it has a faint tea tree smell that is not medicinal at all. just fresh.

eta: it can also be used in the washing machine and is no-rinse if you hand wash.

I've just checked out the Kookaburra site and plan to order some today. Do you prefer the one with or without lanolin? I'm also planning to use it on bedsheets due to its dust mite -killing abilities.
