Why We Love This

Effax Mildew-Free for Leather reliably prevents leather from being attacked by mildew and fungi on the basis of a natural care oil mixture. The addition of lanolin also means the leather receives the ideal nourishment of high quality resins.

For best results, remove any remains of dirt and mildew and apply Effax Mildew-Free for Leather evenly. The Effax Mildew-Free for Leather will be absorbed into the leather and will leave no residue.

Due to federal regulations, we are unable to offer expedited shipping, or ship to Alaska and Hawaii for this product. Please note this item may ship separately from your order. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

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 Mildew-Free for Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from extra protection I travel to another barn that doesn't have a temperature controlled tack room and with the humidity as high as its been here I noticed 2 days later that under my saddle mold started to grow. Read about this and tried it and didn't notice and mold it also keeps the leather really supple.
    Date published: 2018-09-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this to help get rid of white mold spots on my saddle, and it seems to be working so far!
    Date published: 2017-12-26
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for mold removal... This product maybe slows down the growth of mold, but it doesn't prevent mold. This product removes mold really good. I wish the bottle was bigger for the $$. It smells like nail polish remover or vinegar?
    Date published: 2017-12-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Effax Mildew-Free removed the mold on my bridle and saddle, leaving them supple and smooth. They didn't feel dried out as with some other products.. I agree with the other reviews regarding the size of the bottle but I'm very pleased with the product.
    Date published: 2017-11-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says I keep my tack in a locker, so they don't always get aired out as well as if they were hanging in a tack room. Cleans the gunge that builds up on nosebands and browbands, and keeps mold at bay. Nice scent, too. Wish it wasn't so expensive, but it works and is convenient
    Date published: 2017-11-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I was afraid it might discolor my saddle. But no it works well without damaging the leather. Great product !
    Date published: 2017-08-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective Works as promised. Mold has not come back. It's a very small bottle. Ended up buying a bigger bottle of the same product but a larger foam cleaner at Dover.
    Date published: 2017-08-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS! My saddle sat in our (sometimes damp) tack room while I was on vacation and grew mold (insert upset face here...). Even cleaning it after every ride and thinking I got every crevice the mold would still come back if it sat more than a day. One treatment of the Effax mildew spray completely cleared it up!!!! I have since used it on a couple older pieces of tack and it worked beautifully. It's a small bottle so don't be surprised when you order it, but that small bottle packs a powerful punch and a little goes a long way. It will last me a long time. So glad I gave it a try!!!!!!! I will be telling everyone about it!
    Date published: 2017-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product ! Unfortunately in our barn the tack room isn't climate controlled and tack can be subject to mold/mildew. I am a person who cleans tack after every ride. However in a moist environment, even the cleanest tack Can be subject to mildew. I have used this product for many years and I love it. After a good cleaning, I spray this on my tack and it does a really good job of holding the mildew at bay! I especially love to use it on tack that I am putting into storage as well as taking out of storage! One bottle will last you quite a while. I am excited to use my new bottle as the design is different and it has a trigger sprayer versus a pump spray

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tiny bottle Haven't used it yet because I was debating retuning it. Will update if I use it. Did not realize it came in such a small size :(
