Tips and tricks

Our Lily merino garments are particularly susceptible to yellowing if exposed to sunlight.
Please follow our washing instructions carefully. mokopuna merino does not take any
responsibility for damaged garments due to incorrect washing detergents or procedures. 

Stain Removal for poo stains (nappy over-runs):
We suggest white vinegar as a safe cleaning agent - just apply it to the stain, leave for a minute or two and then rinse off and wash with a wool approved detergent as per our care instructions. It may not completely remove the stain, but it should be less noticeable.

Rubbing in order to remove the stain may cause pilling, deterioration and discolouration of the fabric.
