Cleaning rugs!

I'm just after some helpful hints in keeping the lining of rugs clean. Obviously a clean horse and a clean rug are the best option, but most of the time neither one exists in harmony! :lol:

Just wondering what people use to keep their rugs clean and how often do you clean it?

I have hopefully got a show in March and so aiming to ensure my horse's new and already dirty rug is clean.

I use a waterblaster on all my covers, inside and out - even the synthetic polyfill ones. Just don't get too close or the strength of the water will put holes in the material. Anything that's in use around me gets a good clean once a year, just before storage for summer/winter.

Otherwise, you might be able to use a clean body brush (depending on the lining, some of the longer ones don't take to being brushed out very well).
