In the age of automatic and smart washers and dryers, doing the laundry is a doddle. However, some clothing or bedding must be washed by hand. In which case, we have to pay careful attention to the detergent we use. For wool products, lanolin or laundry soap bars with added lanolin are the best. For drying, we recommend you try woollen dryer balls that double as a fabric softener and make your laundry less creased.
