PRESERVE THE LIFE OF YOUR BLANKETS!

Here are some helpful tips in preserving the quality and longevity of your horse blankets:

-          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 necessary. 
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 your blankets.  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 washing cycles.  Always use a COLD water wash and rinse.
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, the integrity of the material becomes compromised.  The material essentially opens up and does not hold a waterproof layer as well as a newer blanket.  Have an older blanket waterproofed every year.

 

We can fix dog blankets/coats too!
