I love using my wool soakers for my baby - especially at night time.

But washing them can be a bit of a chore!

Here's my quick and easy tip:
Use your salad spinner to wring out your wool soakers after hand washing.

Simply grab your (clean) salad spinner and place your wool soaker evenly around the basket.

Then just give it a whirl! It's the hand-washing equivalent of the spin cycle.

Never wring the water out by hand.

The wool fibers of your wool soakers are the most delicate when they're wet, so be very careful not to twist or wring.
