Interlock woes

What am I doing wrong?

I have several pieces of interlock that I've been saving until DD2 starts walking. She keeps getting little circular stain on her knees from crawling. I finally pull these out and put them on her because I really wanted her to wear this dress. They are also going to be too small in about 3 weeks. I seriously washed the floors twice before I put them on her. Not only does she have stains on her knees and bum, she has thigh stains too! I haven't tried to get them out yet but, if past experience is any indication, we are stuck with these spots.



I don't know if you can see them but they are awful IRL. I use liquid lanolin with baby soap. I swear I do everything right. Why am I getting these spots? I have 2 new pair of fiesta tights that I am terrified to put on.

Re: Interlock woes

Have you tried washing them? As in with something like Dawn or Tide in the washer? This is what I do for dirty wool and it takes care of almost everything, even on natural colored wool.

This. We wash all our interlock in the washer, Fels Naptha works well too. You will need to lano after using dawn, Fels or laundry detergent.

Re: Interlock woes

I would wash in the washer with some Dawn or regular laundry soap and see if it gets better. I would also only use a spray lanolin on the wet zone on the inside of the pants, I bet that the lanolin on the knees is really helping pick up and lock in every tiny speck of dirt that's left on your floor.

Do you do it on the wool wash cycle or on the regular?

I use the hand wash setting on mine but I don't have a wool setting.

I do need to get some more spray lanolin but I worry that it's not enough every time.

I have 2 dogs, 3 kids and a husband who cannot remember to take off his shoes. No matter what I do there will be dirt.

Awww, thanks.
It's hard to get a good photo of her these days. She's always on the move.
