Mervyn from Yeats Country Antiques on Francis St brought this over to the shop a few days ago to let it hang out here a while.   It is only 30″ high.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice – it’s patina is truly beautiful.  I think it might need some work though……

Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash

Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash Eucalyptus Scent The Eucalan has finally arrived and it’s fabulous.  It comes in 500ml and 100ml refillable bottles and also 1-wash sachets and wipes.  Apologies – it’s not up on my website yet.

Eucalyptus Scent  :  Eucalan’s Eucalyptus No Rinse Delicate Wash is scented with essential oil of eucalyptus which is a natural moth and flea inhibitor, so use it regularly on woolens and particularly before storing them for the season.  The lanolin enriched formula helps to naturally condition fibres and keep static away.  Use on all your delicates like sweaters, lingerie, hosiery, comforters, down jackets, bathing suits and baby items.  An excellent choice for men.

Eucalan Grapefruit Scent Grapefruit Scent  :  Eucalan’s Grapefruit No Rinse Delicate Wash is scented with essential oil of grapefruit which is a natural antiseptic - particularly nice when washing garments that lie close to the skin like hosiery, workout wear, bathing suits and lingerie.  The lanolin enriched formula helps to naturally condition fibres and keep static away.  Use on all your delicates and enjoy the fresh light scent. 
Eucalan Lavender Scent Lavender Scent  :  Eucalan’s Lavender No Rinse Delicate Wash is scented using essential oil of lavender.  Known for its natural moth and flea inhibiting and antiseptic properties, this is a great wash for all of your fibres.  The lanolin enriched formula helps to naturally condition fibres and keep static away.  Lavender’s soothing spa-like scent has been described as an aromatherapy treat for the user and is ideal for baby items like blankets, stuffed animals, clothing and wool diaper covers.  Our most versatile scent, use it on all your delicates like sweaters, lingerie, hosiery, comforters, down jackets, bathing suits.
Eucalan Natural Scent Natural Scent Eucalan’s Natural No Rinse Delicate Wash is the same great formula, but no scent has been added to it.  It is Eucalan, bare and naked, as we have not added any chemicals to take away the natural scent of the product.  The lanolin enriched formula helps to condition fibres and keep static away.  For those scent sensitive people, use Eucalan Natural on all your delicates like sweaters, lingerie, and hosiery, comforters, down jackets, bathing suits and baby items.
