Grooming tips!
I am always tying to find differnt tricks to getting my horse extra clean and making him comfortable. Anybody have any? looking for those tricks like using fabric softener sheets to collect dust ext. Using inexpensive household items and the like.

good topic! I'm Excited to read up on this!

Can you really use the fabric sheet things to get excess dirt off?

yeah, just make sure that they are unscented as they attract flies. I use them as my regular rub rag, they really get a lot of dirt off.

You can use fabric softener sheets on your horse's mane and tail to take the frizz out and make the stray hair's lay down. We did that at the show in Oct and it worked great!

This isnt for your horse but I keep some baby wipes in my brush area and a tea towel (the kind with button sewn on the top to wrap around the frig door or stove handle) To clean my hands after doing hooves, brushing etc and my hands are nasty. The baby wipes are good for cleaning under tails and delicate areas of your horse too.

I don't know if this works on horses but have you ever gotten kinda greasy hair? Well I guess taking coffee filters and rubbing them on the hair gets rid of the grease. So I don't know about it working on horses but it's worth trying.

thats a good idea
