Quick lanolising Q

Postby Velvetsteph » Thu Jun 28, 2007 8:07 am

have re lanolised woolies but I didn't rinse with vinegar as per imse vimse instuctions and now they're all sticky...

Do you rinse?? I got advised not to but this is daft!!

I use the imse vimse stuff and don't rinse. They've only been a bit sticky if I've used a bit too much lanolin. They're very waterproof then though!
Hopefully Sarah will be on soon and will be more help!

Thats wierd, my Imse Vimse says nothing about vinegar, maybe they have made it thicker or something. I would say not to rinse though! I must admit the first few times they did feel a bit sticky but that soon went after 1 or 2 wears if that and now even after more lanolin they don't.

No don't rinse them.

Sometimes they feel a bit sticky if I've used too much lanolin - but once they are worn that soon goes away.

Well I did leave them in for 48hours due to lazyness so perhaps they're a tad over lanolised! No leaks tho' hopefully :D

Cheers ladies - I won't worry about it, will just put them on her tonight...

Yeah, I was going to say - it will be really moisturising on her skin :D

I have never rinsed after treating wool.
