I just got some used stirrup irons for my saddle. I got them for free, so if my problem can't be fixed, it's fine. Anyways, they are supposed to be silver, I think, but they are gold. Do they make gold stirrup irons? They have been in this shed by an arena for about a year and a half, so I don't know if the weather changed their color or what. Anywho, if they are supposed to be silver, how can I clean them?
We run our steel ones thru the dishwasher, minus the white pads. On those, ajax and an old toothbrush work wonders. I've never heard of brass stirrup irons but I guess they come in several metals. Interesting...
Odd, are you sure they are not meant to be that color? As rare as they are, they are around. Stirrups are made with metal that doesnt rust or change color.
Let us know how the cleaning goes :) I would be curious to know if the stirrups did go back to a different color :)
