Why We Love This

For the most thorough leather cleaning, Leather Combi is a great alternative to traditional saddle soap. Leather Combi's grease free formula penetrates leather and does not attract dust. With regular use, leather is non-slip, tear-resistant, smooth and insensitive to water and sweat.

Made in Germany.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Effax Leather Combi is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 108.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down my favorite leather cleaner This is the best leather cleaner I've ever used (and I've used just about every tack cleaner out there) and I keep purchasing it over and over again. This cleaner is a liquid just like water and it goes onto the leather and slightly lathers up. The cleaner strips any oils or caked on dirt immediately. This is my go to cleaner for neglected tack (dirt jockeys) or for after-cross-country tack cleaning. Fair warning: this cleaner is extremely drying so I do not recommend for every day use. Also, I never use this cleaner without applying some type of conditioner afterwards (Also like the Effax leather balsam). The smaller sample size bottle is great for tack trunks at shows.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not oily at all! It's like a clear liquid. Seemed strange at first but it really cleans and has totally restored an old pair of half chaps that was sitting around for 1 year!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Moderately useful I bought this product with the intention of cleaning my saddle, bridle and leather halter. I did not really soften any of the letter. It was relatively good at cleaning, however.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best leather cleaner/conditioner An experienced horse woman rec'd effax to me about 15 years ago. My saddles and bridles are anywhere from 23 years old to brand new. This product is one secret to making your tack last over time and look beautiful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gunk Gone! This product strips all the gunk off while still leaving the leather conditioned. Use it at least once a week in addition to my regular daily cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Leather Cleaner Conditioner Just bought this product recently for the first time and I'm really happy with the results. It did a great job of cleaning and conditioning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only tack cleaner that I use/buy. I love all of their products, and I can't wait for my cleaner + mildew prevention to arrive as well. Their products are so convenient, and I love how easy they are to use, and how it makes my tack feel after using them.
    Date published: 2017-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I bought this along with the effax leather balm and I really like it. Haven't found a leather I don't like it on, and I'm pretty tough about that. Also like how they offer sample sizes... Every leather cleaner company should do that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Daily Leather Cleaner I discovered the Effax Leather Combi about 15 years ago at the Devon Show. So happy I took a chance and tried something new. Excellent gentle daily leather tack cleaner. Easy to use and smells great. Does NOT leave a sticky gummy residue. Matter of fact, this will help to remove the built up gummy, sticky meds on your fine leather tack. Brings your leather back to a clean soft, feel. It even brings the original colors back as it strips away the built up gunk from using daily saddle soap. My go to product for any leather or vinyl tack clean up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Leather Cleaners Available! 10 years ago I purchased a high end used saddle. I always used Effax Leather products on it to keep it clean. About a month ago I sold that saddle for $50 more than what I paid for it. This stuff keeps your leather in GREAT shape. This product does a great job cleaning tack and it doesn't leave that gunky build up behind that so many other leather cleaners do. I use it approximately every other time I ride. I also combine it with the Effax Leather Balsam, which I use once or twice a month. Combined they've kept my tack in great shape.
    Date published: 2017-01-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Leather Cleaner I live in a very humid climate so tack rarely needs to be conditioned or oiled and most tack soaps don't fully get out the gunkiness that accumulates with sweat, conditioner and dirt. Wiping down tack after every ride is super easy and doesn't leave a film or build up in any tooling. I do not find it dries out my tack because I already live in very humid conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans Thoroughly without Foam and Gumminess This stuff is gentle and deeps cleans all leather. I haven't had a problem with it stripping color or leaving a residue. It doesn't foam much (if at all) when applied, and wipes off nicely. It leaves a clean surface to apply your favorite conditioner/oil. I've used it on fine leather (saddles, bridles, shoes, sofas, etc.) with great success.
    Date published: 2016-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite!!! I'm so in love with this product! It makes cleaning quick and leaves my leather soft and supple!
    Date published: 2016-04-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for after rides and lighter cleaning This product is so easy to use and does a great job removing sweat and grim. Its very friendly toward leather and doesn't require getting the leather wet I like the way it smells too. For really dirty leather that has a build up of black grim and a build up of dried sweat I resort to glycerine soap,suds and a scraper.
    Date published: 2016-02-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cleaning don't dig the smell Cleans great but smells like rubbing alcohol. And it's very liquidy so it seems to not spread much I feel like I have to use a lot.

    Date published: 2015-11-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leather cleaner ever! I have used this product for the past couple of years and it is by and far the best leather cleaner out there. I can take an old piece of leather that is dirty and dry and practically make it look like it did when I bought it! You will need to purchase a leather conditioner to your leather once it has completely dried. You want be disappointed with this product.
    Date published: 2015-11-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cleaner This is a great deep cleaner for weekly cleaning. It is very sudsy so I mix it with water and put it in a spray bottle - 1 part soap/3 parts water. Water bottle makes it more convenient too. I then spray it on my saddle or I spray it on a wet sponge for cleaning my bridle. I then follow up with Passier Lederbalsam to condition it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product. Did a good job on my old paddock boots
    Date published: 2015-08-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, and quickly. Used this multiple times now, leaves leather clean and pliable with only one step. Only needs a small bit of elbow grease on caked on dirt areas, and for relatively clean tack a quick swipe suffices. Tack is usable and feels nice afterwards. I did use the leather basalm, afterwards one time, and my next ride, the reins were too slippery. I have a separate review on that elsewhere. But the effax combi is excellent cleaner and I will buy again.
    Date published: 2015-08-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stuff! I am a tack cleaning fiend!! Everyday I have at least 3 bridles, 2 girths and 1 saddle to clean. This stuff is wonderful for daily cleanings! Non-greasy, cuts right through sweat and hair. Wonderful especially in the summer, as the alcohol in the product burns off, meaning there is often no wipe down process. Leaves saddle tacky and lovely to ride in the very next day.
    Date published: 2015-06-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cleaner, I was a bit reluctant because of the price, but you end up using less of it because it works so well the first time (no sore fingers and arms from scrubbing)! Made my daily work harness look and feel like new.
    Date published: 2015-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I tried it! I've seen this stuff around but didn't know if it was worth trying. I read some of the reviews and thought I'd give it a go. I'm SO glad I did! This stuff is amazing. It cleans and conditions with no sticky residue. If your tack is as dry as mine tends to get, you will also need to use a oil conditioning type product on occasion, but this stuff is awesome for cleaning and regular conditioning. I couldn't be more pleased.
    Date published: 2014-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leather cleaner I bought this after borrowing it from a riding pal--cleans the leather nicely and it smells good too! I used this first and then oiled my saddle with their oil product. Tack looks and feels great.
    Date published: 2014-07-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breaks down dirt really well Along with a sample of the Lederbalsam from Effax, I had a sample of the Combi. At first, I was taken aback by how watery it seems; I'm used to thicker, creamy soaps, but after I figured out how it worked best for me, I really have grown to love it. I still use it with a water dilution and sponge, and I love how it well it breaks down dirt and sweat without scrubbing too much. It does seem a little on the drying side, but used with Lederbalsam, the dryness is counter-balanced perfectly. The Effax leather care products have replaced a big-name brand in my tack cleaning cabinet.
    Date published: 2014-05-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff! So to really use this stuff well, you have to understand it. It's a deep cleanser so it's meant to strip everything off the leather and that sometimes means you might be left with some dryness (especially calfskin) . I always follow up with the Effax Leather Soft and Balm if I'm not going to take the time to oil my saddle (I mean let's be real; oiling is a process) But for what it is, I think it does the best job. Also don't be afraid if you find some residual dye from your saddle coming off, because that's what it is, residual.
    Date published: 2014-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good stuff non greasy, gentle to use on leather. also like the conditioner
    Date published: 2014-04-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for deep cleaning every week or so I've been using Effax on my tack for about a year now. I started using it every time I rode, but I noticed that while my tack was always clean, it was starting to get dry. I've cut back to just using a damp cloth after every ride, and I use this once a week or as needed. I also follow it up with conditioner to avoid it drying out my leather. This seems to working really well. So highly recommend because it really is the best to get rid of anything that doesn't want to come off, but not as a daily cleaner.
