I just finished knitting a ‘booga bag’ and need to felt it. I have never done this before…do I use laundry detergent? If so, how much? Thanks in advance!! :XX:
no detergent is necessary, but if you want to cut down on the stinky wet wool smell, use a little. and I mean a reeeallly really tiny amount. (remember, you are putting your washer on the lowest water setting.)
p.s. hi to a fellow VW fan :cheering:
When I felted last week I used a microscopic amount of soap…and my machine was filled with bubbles. I don’t know quite how that works…but it was amazing.
So yeah, the less soap the better.
Love your screen name too…my very first car (that I bought myself) was a 1971 yellow beetle. Ah, the joy, the pain. :roflhard:
I like to add a tablespoon or two of scented fabric softener. Haven’t had any problems with that.
