Red face Substitue for Saddle Soap

I need to clean my synthetic saddle but I don't have any soap or conditioner. Is there any home substitute that wont harm the saddle?

If it's synthetic, use a mild soap and water solution, then wipe it dry. - EquestrianHow2

Saddle soap and conditioner will ruin synthetic saddles. Depending on what you have you should usually just need to wipe it off with a damp cloth and maybe a mild soap if water alone won't clean it.

We have always just used Dawn dish soap mixed into the water pail. Rinse good, let dry, oil well, and set in sun to dry, and soak up the oil. Now of course that's with leather. Synthetic, do the same, except skip the oiling.

The fact that synthetics do not require the same care is one of the popular selling points of them - all you need to do is wipe it down with water (soap if necessary) and dry it off. Using any of the traditional saddle care products used on leather goods will damage your synthetic.
