Cleaning a fleece half-pad?

My other synthetic sheepskin pad always whitened right up in the washing machine with regular detergent...

But my favorite one and the one I use every ride is brown with dirt and washing it doesn't seem to do much to help it. Anyone know a secret to get a fleece half-pad white again?

Some bleach probably, thinking it would be just like clothes.

My mom did an awesome job once, but believe it or not she did it hand-washing with soap. I never can get the "whiteness" back again though. Good luck with it! :)

I use LeatherTherapy Laundry Solution, it seems to work pretty well. I fill a bucket with warm water and put some of the leathertheraphy in it, then I use a stiff bristled brush to scrub it where needed. :) I have a sheepskin pad though.

I've heard that bleach will turn sheepskin and the nice fleece pads yellow?

I might try hand washing. Bleach did nothing, sadly... It will never be stark white again, but less brown would be nice. LOL

Unfortunately it's just like your favorite white shirt then. It's dingy and done with. But if it's just a work pad, you can still use.

This is true! I'm just one of those OCD people that likes to be perfectly polished even while schooling...unfortunately!
