After three more rinses of the LemonBrite and MelaPower washed wool, I have concluded it needs another wash. My hypothesis of why, it did not start out as an alkaline substance, but rather an acid in the direct dip test. The Great Value did the best to remove the lanolin, but not the dirt in the tips.
However, I still like how the lock tips were completely free of dirt with the LemonBrite. This week I will order more wool from the same place to do another test of half Dawn, half LemonBrite. Perhaps this is the winning combination.
Thank you for reading this lovely test.
