I've actually RUINED a white blouse because a straight drop spilled on it and NEVER diluted all the way out.
I have white Egyptian cotton kingsize sheets with blue spots from an accidental squirt of that stuff in the laundry basket, nope it don't come out of cotton anyways.

I show dogs for a living, and to get yellow dogs white ( or purple dogs white, its happened to my clients) I have used 2 methods.

Method 1: you get some chalk ( in dogs you put chalk in their coat, you can order it online). So take the chalk and hydrogen peroxide and mix it into a paste, put on the horse. I have left this one really bad stains for 2 hrs, then rinsed out and re did a few times to get white. Works GREAT!!!

Method 2: go and get a bleaching agent from sallys, its a creme rinse, put on, leave in, blow dry, then rinse and repeat.

Both worked great.

Oh dear! Don't be alarmed though I once dyed my skewbald mare blue and brown - I used bluebag on her white patches and left them too long! She glowed when she came down the centre line and the dressge judge commented on how sprkly blue she was. It washed out eventually.

With the purple shampoo only leave on for the longest 20 mins before rinsing out.

Try washing the tail every couple of days and conditioning it well. Definitely avoid any bleach products.

I'll get a pictures tomorrow! Thank you for all for the helpful responses! I wrote everything down and tomorrow I'll be hitting the stores and trying whatever I can that won't seriously damage her tail! I'll be going to sally's first of course.

Usually when I purple her up for a show I only leave it on her tail and feet for 10 or so minutes and while that's sitting I wash her mane face and body with usual shampoo. This time her tail was super dirty even after bagging it so I asked a lady that always has sparkling white horses. Next time she saw my trainer she told her that's what she did so we gave it a try however now I've had a blue horse for a month and I'd much rather battle yellow than purple and blue!

Thank you!

So. The girl who told you to leave it in for a few days. How many horses has she died blue, eh?

Try calling into a good hairdressers and ask them what they would recommend - they dye old ladies hair blue so it looks whiter - I'm sure they have the odd stuff up and know what to do.

Sorrel: That's a good question! If she's at the January show I am politely going to tell her it didn't work and did exactly the opposite.

I'll call my moms hair dresser since she's a pro at everything and see if she has any suggestions! I just want a white tail again!

I'm going to get a bunch of stuff and use one at a time.
This is no good! We're supposed to have some wintery photoshoots too so tomorrow is scrub a dub dub day for her tail!
