Hand wash and/or hose off the product with a pressure nozzle. If necessary, use a mild liquid soap to remove excess dirt and sweat. Woolite® or horse shampoo work well. Rinse the product well with cold water and allow it to air-dry. When drying saddle pads, place on a rail or fence with the bottom side up. This helps protect the outside fabric from fading. DO NOT WASH SADDLE PADS OR BOOTS IN A WASHING MACHINE. Machine washing can cause damage and voids the warranty.
