5 Star Saddle Pad Cleaner & Soak
5 Star Equine Saddle Pad Cleaner & Soak safely cleans your all-wool saddle pads. This superior cleaning product not only cleans, it freshens and preserves the pad and keeps the wool soft. 5 Star Equine Saddle Pads do not have synthetic fibers, only pure wool, so the proper cleaning method is important. One of the great benefits of 5 Star Equine Pads is their exceptional ability to wick sweat from your horse's back. This ability can be compromised if you don't clean the pad correctly. Versatile cleaner can be used on other horse tack and blankets, too.
5 Star Saddle Pad Cleaner in convenient spray bottle is easy to use in two ways. Whether you are doing a basic cleaning or a deep soak, first use a rubber curry (not metal) or a 5 Star Equine cleaning sponge to remove excess hair. For cleaning, spray the underside of the pad until it's wet and allow to soak in for 30 minutes. You'll see dirt, crust, and hair at the surface, which can be brushed away. Next, using gentle pressure with a hose, rinse at an angle from the middle of the pad toward the edges until the water runs clear. Do not spray directly into the pad, only at an angle. Allow it to air dry.
For a thorough cleaning of a very dirty pad, find a shallow tub that's large enough to lay down the pad so all of it will be submerged. (You can even try a heavy duty garbage bag). Mix 6-8 oz of 5 Star Saddle Pad Cleaner & Soak with 1 gallon of warm water. Submerge the pad and let it soak 8-10 hours. Periodically work the solution into the pad fibers for best result. Then, rinse the pad using gentle water pressure, from middle toward edges. Air dry. This spray bottle of 5 Star Equine Saddle Pad Cleaner & Soak will clean 4-6 saddle pads.
