Why Clean Your Blankets
Experts highly recommend that blankets be cleaned on a regular basis. The ammonia found in your horses urine, manure, mud and dirt greatly reduces the strength and life of your horses items. Urine can do the most damage to your expensive blankets, one it can bleach out the color in spots, two it can eat away at the material past the point of repair.
The worst thing that many people do is to store dirty blankets away for summer, this can weaken and separate the coating that makes the material waterproof. If a blanket is cleaned on a regular basis and stored properly it can last for years.
I use a comercial washer and multiple wash and rinse cycles to help remove dirt and soap. I make sure there is no soap residue left which can be an irritant to your horses skin.
All blankets are returned in bags with name tag and a second receipt.
