Washing Tack--Polos,wraps ect..

I was wondering how all of you washed all your tack like polos, splint boots, standing wraps, the wraps that go under the standing wrap(cant think of their name right now). Do you put them in the washer and dryer, and if you do what do you set the washer on? Also do any of you wash your brushes in the washer, i heard olu can do that and it would make my life a whole lot easier. Thanks in advance!

Here's what I do...

Polos - I think you can buy a mesh bag to put both polos and standing wraps in the wash so they won't get all tangled up but I can't seem to find one right now. So I would put them in that bag and then add some of this wrap and blanket wash http://www.doversaddlery.com/eqyss-m...1-24437/cn/73/ . And trust me that stuff works really well.

Splint Boots - I would just throw them in the washer along with the detergent above. Just make sure they are machine washable. Also, if there's fleece on them you can throw them in the dryer for 5 or so minutes the make the fleece nice and fluffy again.

Standing Wraps - I would do the same thing as for the polos.

No Bows (I think that's what your were thinking of) - Just make sure they're machine washable and throw them in the washer with some of the detergent posted above.

Brushes - I've never heard of washing the in the washing machine before but I bet it could work. But what I do is soak my brushes in a bucket with some Palmolive until they're clean and then put them in the sun to dry.

Hope this helps.

EVERYTHING goes in the washer for me just recently started putting my brushes in the washer and it is so much less effort and they come up cleaner :P I just leave the washer on a daily clothes wash and use half a washing powder tablet thing :) then hang the stuff out to dry (you could use a tumbler i guess, we dont really use them much in england)

but dont put hoof picks in the washer! or cram in too much

^Same here, pretty much throw everything into the washer.

Ride more, worry less.

The washer is my favorite everything goes in, cept bits and those go in the dishwasher

I wash all my white stuff on whitest whites (hot water) and oxyclean if there are stubborn stains.

When I wash things like halters I put them in a pillow case. I use 1/2 the regular amount of soap and I usually only wash a few at a time. No overloading.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
