    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.
