Yep I wash mine like I was my truck...in fact I usually just park them both in my driveway and do them both at the same time! And as with my truck, I always make sure I hose the underneath as well, to get all the dried mud out of there, esp under the wheel wells.

Oh and I'm anal retentive and take a soapy rag to the inside walls as well, since my mare likes to sneeze dirty snot all over the place in there LOL

I have little horse fairy's fly down and sprinkle pixie dust on mine, then they blow it off with magic nickers.

Wa la, clean as can be.

We end up getting mold here on trailers. We hit ours in the spring with a chlorinated wash to get off the winter growth.

That is another thing the humidity is horrible here, the mold grows so easily. I shovel it out every time I use it for that reason. And the rubber trim around the drop down windows have this nasty black mold that grows on it, same as the ceiling where the condensation builds up. I have to be careful that I don't leave it sealed up otherwise it gets bad! So I leave the windows down and everyday I open the tackroom up and let it air out.


I know where there is a coin-op wash that has a big semi truck wash bay with a platform so you can get to the high spots easily. I asked my husband the next time he gets home to help me pull out the mats so I can get all the crap that has filtered down into the cracks and next to wall out and wash the floor, then I will wait until it is completely dry to replace the mats as not to trap any moisture underneath.

Thanks everyone for the replies!

I might be interested in this cleaning method. Do they work cheap?

Can you send them my way?

I use the powerwasher w/car wash soap on the outside and then run industrial strength disinfectant through it for the inside. With my new one I may break down and wax it....or more likely pay some teenager to do it.

One of my favorite things ever! I like the instant gratification of seeing it make things look better right away. I can't wait to do my siding, decks, indoor arena, come on warm weather!
