Aussie Wool Mix for Woolens
1/2 lb or 300 g pure soap flakes (Ivory)
1 cup or 200 ml methylated spirits (methyl alcohol)
1 small bottle or 50 ml oil of eucalyptus 

Mix methylated spirits with soap flakes. Add oil of eucalyptus. Use 1 T per garment. Dissolve in hot water and pour into the lukewarm washing water. Hand or machine wash on wool cycle - no rinse unless it’s white. The eucalyptus oil preserves wool. Squeeze water out and roll in towel or spin out in washer. Lay flat out of direct sun.
