Eucalyptus has been used for generations to wash woollen clothes and blankets. It repels moths, and cleans gently, which helps tremendously to keep the wool soft.
Ingredients • 2 cups hot water • 2 cups castile soap flakes • ½ cup methylated spirits • 2½ teaspoons eucalyptus oil
Combine hot water and soap flakes, and mix until the soap has dissolved. Add the methylated spirits and eucalyptus oil, and mix well. Pour into a glass container. Seal tightly. To use, dissolve 1-2 tablespoons in a bucket of warm water.
