Honestly there is no quick fix, it takes a lot of elbow grease and work to keep them clean.

What helps though is bathing them with a good shampoo. This is my absolute favorite: Horse Wellness Product

Aspire shampoo does everything it says and more. My horse is very sensitive and it doesn't cause him to break out. His white sparkles, and when I groom him from then until his next bath he's easy to clean

I also have a pet peeve about people calling all white hued horses white. To me, white means there is pink skin underneath. If there is dark skin, you have yourself a grey.

This online store also has amazing brushes and curries. My absolute favorites that make Sky shine. It's my best kept secret

I have a gray that is mostly all white now and i can never seen to get the pee stain off his leg and its always just the left leg, so its just like ingrained in his fur, and even purple shampoo does not get it out? any advice? his nick name has become pee leg.

Does 'whited out grey' or 'greyed to white' and such count for that too!? lol

Our daughter's gelding is a a greyed out appy... so grey he is solid white.I haven't a clue what his original color and pattern was, as we got him last year at age 16 and he was already this white.

I hate that there isn't a true great descriptor word for these color horses. :) Because I do agree, they aren't white.
There are flea bitten greys, but nothing that is solid white grey. :)
