Wink Sheath Cleaning!!

Hey everyone!

So...I think it's time for me to attempt to clean my horse's sheath! Oh boy! It was done recently by the vet, but I figure to improve my horsemanship skills I should try it, plus it should not be horrifyingly nasty yet

I'm pretty sure I know how to do it, I've posted a thread a while back about it, but if someone could give me a very dumbed down version of it that would be great. Oh yeah, and do you have to use the special sheath cleaner, or can you just use warm water, (a sponge?) and gloves?

I guess I'm just asking for a how-to guide and the neccessary materials.

Thank ya!

In regard to the cleaner, we use KY, as it's water based and seems to work as well as the Exclibur cleaner, which I believe needs to be washed off better.

I'm not really sure. I think it helps loosen the smega. My wife actually does the cleaning, and she likes to leave it on for a while (about a 1/2 hour) to help loosen it.
