31 Days of MOO No. 22 MOO Wool Mix

I use this wool wash for washing our blankets, jumpers, doonas, sleeping bags, winter coats, gloves, beanies - anything that contains wool or is put into long-term storage. The eucalyptus and pure soap in the mixture help to deter silverfish and moths from woollies perfect for jumpers or woollen blankets going into storage for the summer.

MOO Wool Mix

4 cups Lux flakes*
4 cups boiling water
1 cup methylated spirits
2 tbsp eucalyptus oil

Mix together and bottle. To use dissolve 2 tablespoons mixture in hot water, cool before gently kneading woollens to wash. Rinse well and dry carefully in the shade, preferably flat to retain shape.

*Lux flakes - you can use any pure soap flakes or grate cakes of pure soap to get the flakes. Depending on the size of the cakes of soap you'll need 2 or 3. If you use the zester side of your grater the soap will dissolve easily and quickly.
