Wool Wash

By

Wool wash is costly and unnecessary. To care for your wool garments on the cheap, just add a cup of white vinegar to your washer's rinse cycle, and everything will come out great.

Why This Works:

Wool fibers are naturally acidic. By adding vinegar to the rinse cycle you are adjusting the pH of the wash water to bring it in line with the ph of your wool garments.

Benefits of Using Vinegar as a Wool Wash:

  • much cheaper than store-bought wool washes
  • no harsh chemicals
  • doubles as a fabric softener and stain remover

Warnings

As with any cleaner, you should avoid all contact with the eyes and prolonged contact with the skin
