Help! Dirty cinches :(

OK so I ride in felt cinches, the Weaver Smart Cinch. Since the horses are shedding so much they are just filthy ugh. I was wondering how everyone cleans them? I tried using a stiff brush to remove the hair/dirt but didnt work very well for me. Any tips???? Thanks!

A shedding blade will do the trick to get the hair off. I'm pretty sure we've run ours through the washing machine too. (Front loader)

I use the same cinches as you! I take one of those cheap plastic curry combs to them to get the hair loose, and then take the pressure washer to em. Works like a charm.

The car wash works great also, especially if they have the floor mat clamps on the wall.

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.
