If any of the 3 work, I'm going to bet on the Oxyclean but again, I sure hope you condition her tail real good, I think that's going to dry it right out.

So how did it go? In my experience none of those things work, but I was dealing with dog hair not horse hair, but I can't see it being that different.

When her tail is just dirty and not blue all three work great. The simple green works the best. The oxyclean actually makes her tail silky soft and I always use show sheen when I brush it out. Her tail is still drying. I used the oxyclean today, simple green next time. To start with it was a violet blue. I took pictures on my phone I'll upload when I get home. I saw a bit come out but not enough for a noticeable difference.

Since it's just her tail, you might try fabric dye remover if you can't find an actual hair dye remover.... Rit Dye Color Remover is gentler than some of the others....I haven't tried this on my horse but it works on delicate fabrics so I'd be inclined to give it a shot instead of using bleaches or hydrogen peroxide.

That's an idea! I've use it before on fabrics it's worth a try

Keep us posted on how well it works. I've got a dingy white tail out in the barn that could use some attention come Spring!

I didn't bag her tail tonight either. Maybe the mud and dirt will pull some of the color out with it next wash?

Here's before and after.
I could see a little purple wash out but not enough to make a noticeable difference.
First is before washing. Second is still a little damp after washing. It's actually more colored than it looks in the second picture but everything is darker when it's wet. It's still very noticeable though. If you look at the trim on her top blanket that's the color it is dry.

Try the Whiite Minx, I think it will work!
