Blanket Washing

Just curious. Is there a special detergent you're supposed to use for washing horse blankets? I read something about standard detergents taking off water proofing. If so, anyone know of a good detergent?

I bought detergent specifically for washing blankets, but I forget the name of it and can't find it on the website of where I bought it!

I use Woolite or the detergent made for babies, I can't think of the name of it.

Foal has great rug wash for water proof blankets. Gets the smell out and gets them really clean. They also have a spray for re-proofing that puts the water proofing back on.

I don't use detergent when I wash em. I take them to the car wash and spray the hell out of them and then turn them inside out and hang them for a few days. My boy has sensitive skin so I always worry about reactions.

^I have a sensitive one too corinowalk, I used to go to the car wash. I use the Dreft and he has no problem with it. The old lady at our laundromat gives me dirty looks everytime I come in with a cart full of horse blankets & pads....they have mega sized industrials so she has to live with it!

I just use 'free and clear' laundry soap in my washing machine.
