Question Keeping your sweaty tack clean throughout summer.

Do you have any tips/tricks for keeping your sweaty and smelly saddle pads, boots, polo wraps, girths and so on clean and fresh durring these summer months? Beyond the garden hose and my mother's washer (only when she feels generous and I've scrubbed the horse hair out to her satisfaction) I am at a loss as to keeping everything less gross.

Thanks for any replies!

Subscribing! I have a wicked time trying to get the gunk off of the noseband of Jesse's bridle from the sweat/dirt combination.

I keep more than one of everything. That way, I can swap out cinches and saddle pads every few days to clean the dirty ones.

My other answer? A pressure washer. I am just using the nozzle I use for bathing the horses right now but I am going to get one of these someday. No need for a compressor, just hooks right to your hose.
