In this week's blog hop lets talk about what cleaning products you use on your tack and why?
I use Stubben brand saddle soap and their hamanol conditioner. I bought both when I got my Stubben saddle, as it was the biggest horsey purchase I've ever made and I wanted to use the recommended care products instead of the cheapo stuff I'd been using before. I think both work great, are easy to use, and smell fine. The saddle soap lasts a long time, but I go through the cream conditioner pretty quick. I plan on getting more of both when needed.
I use white vinegar to clean bits. It does a great job of getting crud off, and Hemie seems to like the taste. I use it to clean lots of barn things, actually. Non-toxic and very effective. Smell isn't great though.
At home I have Lexol conditioner for cleaning my riding boots, as I was told that it's the brand recommended by Ariat for boot care. The large jug is annoying and I prefer cream conditioners over liquid, so I'm not sure I'll buy more when the time comes.
