Blanket washing

So I need to wash and winterize my fly sheet. What is a detergent I can use that is safe for sensitive horsey skin? How about a drier sheet that is also horse safe?

All Free and Clear is what I use for myself since I'm allergic to all scents and dyes so it would probably work well for her. I wouldn't put it in the dryer though.

What Poppy said ;) Free and clear is what I use on horse stuff and my stuff!

Or Woolite works well also if you need a bit more cleaning power. I would stay away from the dryer, as flysheets can be kind of delicate. If you are worried about static you could use a liquid fabric softener, but I would stay away from the heavily scented stuff as it will have more irritants in it.

Good Luck!

ITA with the above - especially with regards to skipping the dryer. Hang dry and then you don't have to worry about the dryer sheet issue.

Any detergent that's perfume free and stated as safe for sensitive skin - I like the ones that have baking soda in. They don't wash great for some reason so you need to put them on a longish cycle but not a hot one and I always do an extra rinse to be on the safe side.
I have a rack in my basement that I hang them over to dry if its not suitable to hang them somewhere outside.
I don't put any rugs in my tumbledrier - you get too much static which could be a fire risk

Try your horse shampoo.

I would use good ole Lysol concentrate. The brown stuff. It pulls hair out like nothing else. The years I worked at the vet we washed everything in it, works like a charm.
