I doubt this is really the best way to clean fleece girths/boots/halfpads but I first curry or comb to loosen the dirt, hair, and whatever else is trapped in there. Then wet it down with cold water and put some horse whitening shampoo on it, lather it up, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse it off. I let it sit out to dry naturally. I’ve always done this with my fleece tack, doesn’t seem to damage it at all.. Does anyone else do this? And is this a good way to keep your fleece clean?

If it is truly fleece then it needs a wool cleaner. Otherwise you strip the oils and cause damage to the fleece.

If synthetic fleece then the shampoo rinsed well and thoroughly is fine. Shampoo and water will ruin suede. Get a cleaner made for that. Figure out what your girth is. You can upload a photo here and we can help.identify.
