Save money by cleaning your own blankets.
By Lisa Barry, FEI 5* Rider and Trainer
Are you sick of sending your blankets away to get professionally cleaned and spending a fortune on it?? Invest in a small power washer. You can easily get your blankets looking good as new by hanging them over a fence and power washing them. When cleaning water proof blankets, reapply waterproofing after the blanket is completely dry. This works for saddle pads too.
