And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Effax Leather Cream Soap is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have at the barn! I first tried this about a month ago after it was recommended to me. I had always conditioned my saddle and never really "cleaned" it. Now I used this after every ride and one a week pair it with my usual conditioner. And they work great together! It also works well on my boots for a quick clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle cleaner I bought this a month ago for my new saddle. So easy to use. Wipe dirt and sweat off with damp cloth. Apply small amount of cleaner conditioner and rub in. Leaves a nice non sticky finish that buffs up nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I've tried a lot of cleaning products over the years. This is the best. Easy to use and leaves tack soft and supple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Cleaner This is my favorite cleaner out of the millions of others I have tried. It's easy to use and a little goes a long way. Not so great at scrubbing old sweaty dirt off but perfect for regular use and wiping down tack after XC. Well worth the $$
    Date published: 2016-05-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I was so happy to find this product through a recommendation from a friend. As far as waterless soaps, this is the best product I have ever used. And a little goes a long way. I do, however, still like to condition my saddle and leather after use.
    Date published: 2016-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cream is super easy to use and effective! We have been using this cream for a month now and love it. It's super easy even my son uses it on the saddle and bridle. I love the feature that it is a squeeze bottle.
    Date published: 2016-01-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Effax! Love all the Effax products! This one has a lid with a hook, so you can pop it on the bottom and hang it from the bridle hook which makes it easier to squeeze out the product and clean. Use this to clean and condition my leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and convenient for daily use. My must have product for my daily training program to keep boots and tack clean, supply snd sweat free.
    Date published: 2015-07-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cleans! Wanted something quick to clean tack with after riding. This stuff works great. Dab some on a sponge and wipe away. Does not leave any residue and dries quickly. I may have used a bit more than necessary, but I couldn't read the directions as they are printed in ultra-microscopic print which would have required a trip to the car to fetch my reading glasses and a magnifying glass LOL - hence the four star rating. I will use this in conjunction with the Effax leather cleaner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product....the smell, the feel of the leather after using it. I will definitely buy it again.
    Date published: 2015-01-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells good and works great I use this on my schooling boots and it's kept them in great condition. It cleans and conditions leather really nicely, all in one step. My favorite thing about this soap is the clean smell. The hanging bottle with the flip cap is really convenient in the tack room. The only downfall is it seemed to make my saddle a little slippery, so I mostly use it on my boots and bridle.
    Date published: 2014-12-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice option when water isn't available Cleaning tack with water in the freezing winter barn (even hauling the water into the heated tack room) is not very desirable, so this is a nice option to have when it's really cold or I'm in a hurry. I don't feel like it cleans as well as some other products and it does start to build up over time, so I find I do have to still take my tack home once a week and do a really good thorough cleaning.
    Date published: 2014-12-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome polish..but i really love how easily my boots are clean and shiny when most polishes have a matte finish. the only con about this is that my friend used used this also and it rubbed black stains on her grey horse's sides. other than that I love the product!
    Date published: 2014-10-20

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy to use! This product is so,easy and quick to use, and does a great job on cleaning my boots after a trip to Laramie River Ranch in Colorado!!
    Date published: 2014-09-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for black tack I use this on all my tack, but it's great for black tack. Sometimes when I use a heaver conditioner, like Liederbalsm, on black tack it either doesn't soak in or the black bleeds, this solves the problem. Great that you don't need water and love the hanging cap design.
    Date published: 2014-07-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one cleaner and conditioner! I've been using this product for 6 months. Its great for lazy people like me who don't love cleaning tack. Since this product cleans and conditions at the same time I definitely use it more than any of my other tack cleaners. It keeps my saddle, bridle, and tall boots in tip top shape. I try to use this product on my tack about once per week. Then once every 2-4 weeks I use the Effax Lederbasalm to deeply condition. I love the cap on this product. You can attach it to the end of the tube and hang it upside down so its ready to dispense with no drip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy! I live in Central California where conditions are DRY.  Even our winters are dry. Frequent conditioning of tack is necessary as our summer heat dries tack out quickly.   I have my bottle of soap hanging on my bridle rack.  I actually do fill a small bucket of water so that I can rinse the sponge and slightly dilute the soap.  Water isn't necessary, but I find that since I use the soap daily, I don't need very much of it.  I simply dampen my tack sponge, squirt some soap directly on the sponge, and wipe my tack clean.  Once I've finished (a simple 5 minute job), I do take a clean cloth and wipe off any extra product which seems to keep it from building up. My bridles haven't ever been this soft and clean.  Everyone few weeks, I also use a hardier conditioner, but that's even easier to apply as my bridles are extra clean all the time!  
    Date published: 2014-01-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the soap! The soap cleans leather without making it sticky and leaving white residue. 
    Date published: 2014-01-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! Just got this stuff today and immediately tried it on all my tack. I loved it!  Made my saddle soft yet grippy.  Also made my tall boots look better than they have in a while!  Definitely recommend if you want something thats quick to use and leaves your leather products looking and feeling like butter. 
    Date published: 2014-01-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product only have used it once, but the product is liquid/creamy similar to lotion making it very easy to apply
    Date published: 2013-12-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy! Love this stuff! I have it hanging on my bridle hook and it's so easy to grab a sponge and clean my tack right away after riding. In the dry climate here I love that I don't have to use both tack cleaner and conditioner to keep the leather nice. When's it's humid it can get a bit tacky but it's worth having the moisture when it's dry out. Love the ease and access of the bottle. I have used most of it already, but I think you could make it last longer if you use it sparingly.
    Date published: 2013-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tack Cleaner This is my go to cleaner for my tack. I love the ease of applying- just squeeze product onto sponge and apply to leather. Leaves tack feeling soft and supple but gives a decent amount of grip. One of my favorite features is the hook built into the bottle so that you can hang it and just squeeze onto a sponge. Thank you to whoever thought of that! Genius feature! The only thing is be careful hanging it when it is 100+ degrees outside, it will drip out of the bottle. I follow with the Effax Leather Balsam every so often and the Effax Mildew-Free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely fabulous product. Will recommend to others and reorder for myself
    Date published: 2013-07-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome & easy daily leather cleaner! I was using HorseTech's ReitSport Saddle Soap, which smells great, but it was drying out my Amerigo Vega dressage saddle to the point my leather was "squeaking" when riding; very annoying. I started using this Effax Leather Cream Soap -- recommended by my local tack shop -- and I cannot believe the difference! This cream soap smells great, goes on SO easy (no water needed!) and wipes off clean. It doesn't leave a "tacky" feel but still gives you a nice "stick" in the saddle, so awesome! I highly recommend this product for your daily tack cleaner! I still pair it with Antares Leather Conditioner every few weeks and Antares Leather Oil ever other month or as needed.
