Starting a Tack Cleaning Business

As the title says, I'm going to be starting a business soon and I need your help! If you have the time, fill out the following survey. Thanks so much. :)

What product(s) do you use to:
Clean your leather tack?
Oil it?
Condition it?
Clean metal/silver?

Would you pay $10 an hour to have your tack thoroughly cleaned?

How do you clean synthetic or suede tack?

Name ideas?

Tips and Tricks?

Not sure about most of those questions, all I know is that I use leather CPR on my tack and a rag to buff it. I personally wouldn't get somebody else to clean my tack no matter how much it costed, because I don't compete often or at a high level. But it does sound like a reasonable price for those who would want it.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

What product(s) do you use to:
Clean your leather tack? Moss Saddle Soap, Passier Saddlesief, or regular glycerine
Oil it? Hydrophane Leather Oil
Condition it? Passier Lederbalsam or Leather CPR
Clean metal/silver? ??

Would you pay $10 an hour to have your tack thoroughly cleaned? Probably not, unless I showed at high levels. I just don't trust other people to get my tack as clean as I do. Plus, I'd rather put that money towards new tack.

How do you clean synthetic or suede tack? I've never had any synthetic tack so I wouldn't know.

Name ideas? I wish I could help you there but I'm not good with names at all.

Good luck with your business!!
