How to get the pee smell out?
When I cleaned all my tack a few weeks ago, I noticed that my gelding's lead rope had a -very- strong apple-pee smell to it... At first I couldn't figure out why, and then I realized/remembered that when I put my horses in the yard, I sometimes leave their halters on and toss the leads over their backs... and, of course, the leads tends to slide from the horses backs to the ground and are drug along behind/beside the horses...
Apparently, my gelding had/has peed on his lead...
I washed his his really good with dish soap and water and really, really scrubbed... it got some of the pee smell out, but not all of it... It got enough out that I couldn't smell it unless I held the lead up really close to my face... but now that's it's been a few weeks, the smell is coming back... and I'm positive that my boy hasn't peed on his lead again because I haven't put him out and left it on him again.
How do I get the pee smell out once and for all!?
