Wow, I guess I have a dirty mind today It took me a second to figure out what you thought

I take my blankets to someone to wash. This is only because I do not have a washer big enough for the heavy blankets to fit.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I think if you added up the costs over the years - if you own several horses its probably cost effective to buy a large washing machine. Its one of my 'loves' about the US - the machines are way bigger than the UK ones
The only rugs I can't get in are the real heavyweight ones and I spread them out on the yard when the weather is dry and warm and scrub them over with detergent, hose them off - do both sides and get someone to help me hang them up to dry over an old table

I refuse to put anything with poop in my washer, yucky. I pay $10 for the local tack shop to wash them for me.

poppy, do you not wash your underware in your washer? That has amounts of fecal matter on it?

I send ours out to a cleaning/repair service. It costs a little more, but they clean it, repair it and then put it in a nice zippered bag for storage. I feel like I save more this way because the rugs/blankets last us longer and I don't have to buy new ones as often.

Lol well mine certainly don't unless of course we are talking about amounts so small no one can see it with the naked eye.

Lizzy gets clumps of poo and pee on those rear leg straps. Yucky. Not going on my washer. Even after I've hosed it off.

I send mine off to a local cleaning/repair shop. Costs $15-20 per blanket and they fix up all the little things for free. Bigger things she will call with a quote on.
