Eucalan is a fiber wash originally designed for woolens. The founder of Eucalan, Mary Ellen Edgar, invented Eucalan after discovering a no rinse laundry product in Australia. Living in the country necessitated being conscious of water consumption, so a no rinse laundry solution was perfect for her home. According to the Eucalan website:
The derivative of the company name, Eucalan, is the combination of two of the prominent ingredients from the original product formula — eucalyptus and lanolin. The eucalyptus scented product is still available along with sweet-smelling lavender (which like eucalyptus has moth-inhibiting qualities) and grapefruit, which has natural disinfectant properties.
Eucalan works well with a variety of fibers, including delicate clothing that you didn’t knit yourself. I’ve used it to clean things like bras and the lining of my new purse after my gum melted all over it (smooth move, I know). I also use Eucalan for blocking and washing finished knits. They work great, plus each of the 4 scented varieties of the wash are really nice, even if you’re not the biggest fan of scented products. And for those of you who are very scent-sensitive, there’s a Natural Eucalan that has no added scent.
