Dropped my lead rope in horse pee *eeeek* and it stinks!!

How can i clean this? I soaked in soap and water and it still smells very bad. I am thinking of getting a cotton one instead.

Try soaking it in vinegar. If that doesn't work, you might try oxy-clean or even some of the pet stain removers.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I just toss mine inside a pillow case along with any other horse related laundry I have and toss them in the washing machine. The clanks and bangs are annoying but the machine doesn't seem any worse for the wear.

Vinegar is exactly what I'd use too.
I'd spray/dip it in vinegar [I would use apple cider vinegar just because I like to think it's 'healthier' and I like the smell better haha], leave it to dry, once dry, spray it for quite a while with a hose/toss it in the washing machine, and let it air dry outside - ideally in the sun [sunlight kills bacteria=less stink].

Good luck! I've had that happen before and it's the worst.

Chlorine bleach (Chlorox or equivalent) gets out urine smell. I've never had to use it on horse stuff, but the previous owner of my house had cats which weren't well house trained. You can actually see it fizzing on a bad stain...

Ugh I sympathize with you my lead rope got peed on this past weekend. I soaked it in vinegar, with some laundry detergent then removed the clip and washed it in the washer. It still smelled so I left it in the sun for two days, it helped but still has some residual stink. But on a good note it is clean just smelly.

Learn to love the smell of horse pee and this won't be a problem...

How long should I soak it in vinegar for? Do I dilute it with water? It smells disgusting and my DH (not a horse person) is not happy.
I can't put in water, my DH will kill me. :(

Just send it to me and I'll just loop it on the fence with all the other leads with pee, poop, and who knows what on them.
