If you wash the tail OFTEN then you could probably get it really white by using bluing shampoo. Put it on when the tail is still dry and use the concentrate but don't dilute it at all. Leave it on the tail for abut five minutes then rinse. My boss does this with her white horse's mane and tail and they glow! I haven't done it on my white horse yet but I plan on finally trying it out tomorrow as long as the weather stays nice.

Bluing shampoos actually don't remove stains, they just make white tails brighter.

There is a product called "blinded by the white" I forget who makes it, but it has lemon juice etc and it really helps remove stains on white tails.

I've never had an issue with the stains not coming out.

I have a grey mare that has an amazing tail that gets gross really quickly because she doesn't lift it out of the way when she pees. The best stuff I have found is a laundry stain remover spray. I'm really careful not to get it on her skin, but it works really well. Cuts out all the grease and grime. It will dry out the hair and can turn it a little green if left on too long.

I usually spray it on, give it a scrub then rinse it out. I then follow up by washing the entire tail in a purple shampoo then I'll condition it.

You don't need anything except GOOP. Its a white de-greasing soap that is sold in the automotive section of wal-mart. I've checked for it at autozone, k-mart, and target, but I've only found it at wal-mart.

You rub it in/on while the horse is dry, and shampoo it off like you are giving the horse a normal bath. It will be blinding white!
I use it on my chestnut's socks. If the dirst is really stubborn, I take a rubber curry and massage the goop around before shampooing.

This is what you are looking for:
Goop Hand Cleaner- America's Premium Quality Multi-Purpose Hand Cleaner Since 1949 - Original Goop

It works so well because its a de-greaser, but it will make your horses coat dull if you use it a lot on its entire body. I would just use it to problem stains, manes, and tails, or on white markings.
It is very gentle so it won't cause any irriation, but it will take out the national shine your horse has from its own oils if you over use it.

Oh, and I forgot to mention it is about $1.50 for a tub!!
