Sheepish Grins Creamy Lanolin Spray Review & Giveaway (2/22)

Sheepish Grins Creamy Lanolin Spray  (8 oz.)-sheepish grins lanolin spray, sheepish grins wool care, lanolin spray


Wool. We’ve talked about it before and if you use it you love it. If you don’t you’re probably intimidated by the care and maintenance. I love how soft wool covers and longies are and that they are not only more breathable than PUL covers, but also serve as extra absorption if the diaper under it gets saturated. Wool also helps regulate temperature and is naturally antibacterial.

First of all, the care and maintenance for wool is actually quite simple and you will be thrilled to know wool does not need regular washing like synthetic diaper covers. You wash wool covers in a wool-safe wash (like Eucalan) when soiled, which is not all too often at our house, although for infants with looser stools you may need to wash more often.

Next, you re-lanolize (waterproof) wool covers every 2-4 weeks depending on the type of wool you have, how many covers you are rotating and the wetting patterns of your little munchkin. Traditionally, lanolizing is melting a small amount of lanolin in boiling water, add the milky white mixture to tepid water, massage the lanolin in, letting them soak and then dry. It sounds like a number of steps, but it all goes fairly quickly and although you want to let the covers soak a minimum of 20-30 minutes you can even leave them overnight.

I had the opportunity to review Sheepish Grins Creamy Lanolin Spray thanks to The Diaper Wagon (one of my lovely sponsors), that makes the already pretty straight forward step of lanolizing faster, easier and definitely more convenient. You know what else? They have dozens of scents to choose from (click here and here so see their long list of scents), which makes lanolizing fun and easy. I was able to review the Warm Apple Pie scent and it is unbelievable. I keep digging my nose into her wool longies and covers and taking a whiff!

I had previously been “old school” and melted lanolin and soaked my covers the traditional way before getting this product and I must say I only plan on only doing that every couple of months now. It’s good to get a good dose of lanolin in your wool from time to time, so I won’t abandon this method, but this Creamy Spray Lanolin will definitely be my “go to” way to lanolize every couple of weeks or as needed. I would also like to add that I did not know this when I first started lanolizing, but lanolizing is best done in a bucket or tub because you don’t want lanolin gunking up your drains over time. So that is another big perk of this spray lanolin as you do not have to worry about tubs of lanolin water at all or as often when using this product.

As for performance I haven’t noticed any difference between the two ways I have lanolized, so they seem to be equally effective, but the lanolin spray is definitely more user friendly. You can spray the entire cover (both sides), just spray the main wetting zones or a combination of the two (spray entire cover and maintain by spraying the wetzones). I love this product as it is convenient, smells delectable, gives me another reason to love wool and another argument that it is easy to take care of (with the right “tools” of course). I would recommend it to any current or new wool users as a primary or secondary method to lanolize their wool covers.  

 Product Description from Sheepish Grins:
Silky smooth and easy to use, Sheepish Grins ™ Creamy Spray Lanolin is the most stable spray lanolin you can buy.  It very rarely separates and it is super easy to use. Moisturize and condition your wool diaper soakers and covers in one easy step. Available in several delicious scents, you’ll love this simple lanolin spray.

Available in a 4 ounce size so you can try several scents or in an economy 8 ounce size. Compare price per ounce to other brands!

To use:
 Just shake gently and spray well onto both sides of your freshly clean wool soaker and gently massage into the fibers. Allow your wool item to soak it in. Once dry, your wool will function properly once again. You will need to wash your cover as needed and reapply.
