Horse rugs aren’t cheap. You will want to do everything you can to ensure that they last you a long time and remain in good condition. Cleaning horse rugs is a necessity. It is also worth bearing in mind that a tatty or damaged rug will fail to serve its purpose effectively.
Taking care of your equipment is important. You will save money in the long run, but it is also important for your horse. A dirty or broken rug will not be comfortable. Here at Equine Superstore we sell a wide variety of horse rugs. So, we thought that we would offer you some useful tips and advice to help you maintain your rug.
One option is to send them off to a professional cleaners. A professional will be able to use their knowledge and expertise to ensure that your rug gets the proper cleaning and treatment that it requires. This is also useful if you own a larger rug, as these can, at times be tricky to clean yourself. Another bonus of a professional is that they will often carry out some minor repair work for you. If required, they may also re-proof them.
If you don’t want to send your rug off to the cleaners, then you can always clean it yourself. Some of the smaller, more lightweight rugs will be machine washable. However ensure that you read the washing instructions closely, so you don’t damage the rug during the cleaning process. Larger rugs, which won’t fit in your machine, should be washed by hand.
