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.

I would love to try the grapefruit scent!
I have not tried this product…I bet they smell wonderful!
I’ve only tried lavender and I love it! Didn’t know there were so many other options
I would love to try the jasmine scent!
I think the grapefruit, I love citrus!
I saw this product in a yarn store and almost bought it, now I wish I did. I bet the grapefruit smells delightful! I’m a novice knitter so I can’t wait to get to the point of needing to block and give everything a signature scent.
I would love to try the lavender one!
The lavender scent sounds wonderful! Thank you for the giveaway!
Looks like a great product! I would love to try them all but especially the Grapefruit!
I prefer unscented

Love the lavender scent!!
I love Eucalan, I’ve used it before and loved the scent.
I would love to try the lavender:)
the grapefruit sounds amazing!
I think this stuff is the greatest– the eucalyptus is pleasant and doesn’t smell antiseptic at all (think throat lozenges/cough drops). The lavender would be a nice alternative, as well.
Really went to try these thankm you for giving me a chance to win
