Cleaning up the white spots :/

I have a Sorrel Appaloosa, who has loads of white on her feet and butt. WORST PLACE. She is always getting them dirty with mud, manure, and urine stains. :/ For up coming show season, does anyone have a quick and easy way to get rid of those stains during bath time ? (id prefer if the ways were like from house hold products seeing I don't have much money to get expensive stain removing products) thanks for all your help ! :)

Shampoo and Spray

Any shampoo with blueing( or bluing) in it! I have always had paints that had socks and the shampoo worked wonders! I don't know the specific brand also, gallop stain removing shampoo (which you can purchase at sstack). Also, I would get a stain remover spray for AT the show, for immediate touch ups. A good product is the Showsheen stain remover and whitener at sstack. Those work wonders. My paints would always lie down ( I would wash them at night) and their would be small stains on their white, so at the show I would spray this stuff on and rub it in with a towel and lots of elbow grease and it was good! Be sure to get the whitening shampoo though! It brightens the white, where a clean, stainless white is not as bright!

I have a paint with lots of white on him. Best shampoo is Quick Silver.

Serious? My gelding has white feet. But for some reason they always stay clean! But he is growing his feathers back in...Oh blueing works great!

I like bath in a bottle for quick touch ups.

Ya anything with blueing is great. I haven't tried much yet, but this year I'll be looking for something. At shows he goes to bed in a blanket, wraps, and a slinky. So far that keeps him mostly clean at the show after his bath!

If shampooing isn't possible, try dry corn starch. We used to use that, in a pinch, after we already had the kids at the show.

One horse was really good at rubbing it's white leg and getting dirt or grass stain on it. Rubbing dry corn starch on it, always worked

If you have time for the hair to grow back. Body clip all the white every 6 months. Seriously, its a god-send! It gets rid of all the stains and it makes for easier cleaning!

Mrs. Stewart's Liquid Bluing. It's in a small blue bottle with a white label of an old lady on the front. It's available in the laundry supplies aisle of most big name grocery stores. Although I don't think Wal-Mart carries it, which is kind of strange.

Anyway, it is a pure form of the ingredient in most "whitening shampoos", plain liquid bluing. Use it diluted in a bit of water and don't leave it on too long or you will have brite blue white spots. I learned this one the hard way just before my championship showmanship class many years ago. I hadn't heard of it and a friend said "here, try it" and didn't warn me. I used it straight from the bottle... Anybody ever see a palomino with a neon blue tail?? O.O
