THE LIFE OF YOUR BLANKETS!
Here are some
helpful tips in preserving the
quality and longevity of your horse
Since manure and urine
will break down the material of your
blankets, on the first sunny day you
are able, hang the blanket over a
fence and hose down any spots that
your horse has rolled in.
At the end of the
blanket season, send your blankets
in for laundering and repair so they
are ready for the winter.
The turnaround time in the winter
seems much longer when you need the
blanket than in the spring, when you
are done using it.
If you would like to
wash your own blankets, first use a
hose and a brush on the blankets
while hanging over a fence.
Without soap, hose your
blanket down thoroughly and use a
hand brush to manually remove any
mud, manure and urine.
Let the blanket dry in the
sun and repeat the process if
Use a front-load washer or a top-load without an agitator.
The straps will get caught up
in a center agitator and can tear
the straps off.
Run a hot water rinse cycle on your
machine before putting in blankets,
to wash the residual detergent out
of the machine.
Do NOT use regular laundry soap!
Regular detergent will
destroy the waterproof coating on
Use a specially formulated
non-soap product made for horse
blankets or camping equipment.
If your blanket is medium or heavy
weight, it will probably require 2
Always use a COLD water wash
Do NOT use the dryer as this can
shrink your blanket, as well as
destroy the waterproof coating.
Always hang dry your blankets!
Store your blankets
over the spring and summer in a
Rubbermaid-type plastic container
once they are clean and repaired.
This will keep out rodents,
barn cats, and dogs from using your
horse’s blankets as bedding when
not in use.
Have your blankets
waterproofed if they have shown any
sign of water seeping through.
Keep in mind that the older a
blanket is, the less able it will be
to hold a waterproof layer.
After 2-3 years of use,
including improper laundering and
long-term manure and urine stains,
