My English saddle pads and sheets are washed in my front-loader and hung to dry. Western pads are soaked in a tub of water with a mild detergent and hung to dry.

My laundromat must be desperate. They have a big sign in their window that says "We do horse blankets".

I go to a laundromat on the other side of town from the college (usually at least one new, clueless one that hasn't hung a NO HORSE BLANKETS sign *yet*).

Saddle pads go in my top loader though. For saddle pads, buy a pet hair, sticky roller with a rubber blade (I leave an empty sticky pad holder on it just so it keeps it's shape) and run the rubber blade in each direction to scrape up all the hair before washing. I do that outside so the loose hair doesn't get all over my laundry room, my girls save the wads and wads of horse hair and put it out for the birds in Spring.
