Washing a saddle pad?
I have a saddle pad like this.
It's Australian sheepskin with a quilted top.
How would I go about washing that? Could I put it in the washing machine under delicate or should I hand wash it? It's kind of funky and I'd like to clean it up a bit.
Hand wash - you can buy stuff that is formulated just for sheepskin - open up the dover catalogue and go into the 1/2 pad section - you'll see the stuff they sell for pads like yours.
I have a sheepskin pad. I use this stuff called PePeDe. It comes in a little orange bottle and you put in a capful per load, wash it on delicate. Does great. I know some people who use Melp but I haven't tried it.
it is a yellow liquid?
There's Merino Wash for sheepskin as well :)
I guess I should be more specific.
I don't have time to drive two hours to a tack shop, or wait two weeks for shipping. I just was hoping to wash my saddle pad tonight for a ride tomorrow at two pm.
lol - just go get your laundry detergant and hand wash it in the tub - I would go cold water.
I throw my sheepskin half pad in the washer all of the time and then I put in in the dryer on Fluff-No Heat. It always comes out bright white and fluffy. My full sheepskin Fleeceworks has not needed to be washed yet and for some reason I have issues doing the same thing with it that I do with my half pad. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Oh! Well there ya go!
I usually wash all my pads by hand with the same shampoo I wash my horse with and rinse well with the garden hose, sun dries in a few hours. I only have synthetic fleece though, maybe that wouldn't work for the real stuff.
