With DC2 arriving in a few weeks I have dug out all DD's old stuff including her lovely sheepskin that we used to line her buggy, use as a mat for her to lie on etc etc. It has been in the loft for 2 years and needs a clean. What is the best way to go about cleaning it?

The one I borrowed from my SIL could go in the washing machine and needed to be humg to dry away from direct heat.

Iirc, it's important to use the correct washing liquid to wash sheepskins and definitely no conditioner. I use 'Winganna natural products liquid lambskin wash'. Mine is still in very good nick and my children are teenagers so I've had it for at least 12 years. I've bought it in the past from Sally Terry Associates in Spalding, Lincolnshire. Hth.

Don't mess up like I did though and put it in a 40 degree wash! That one has ended up as a pram liner due to shrinkage.
