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'!).

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.

Favorite Features

  • Natural Care Oil
  • Ideal Nourishment

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.

Effax Mildew-Free for Leather is rated 4.611111111111111 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever! Last year I had a terrible time with mold on my saddle and tried frequent cleaning with many different products with no success. I finally started bringing my saddle home instead of leaving it at the barn. I reluctantly ordered the Effax product, expecting it not to be any better than the others, but was pleasantly surprised. This product works! One application and the mold was gone. Several weeks later a tiny bit appeared and I reapplied the product and have had no more issues at all - even during hot, humid and wet weather. Yes, it's pricey, but I don't mind paying for something that actually works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I tried everything on my older dressage saddle - even (in a desperate moment) covering the entire thing in Lysol - and white mold would still come back after a day or two. This stuff works! I have sprayed the saddle down twice and let it be, and the mold is drastically contained. It isn't completely gone yet, especially on the seams and small crevices, but I think another treatment or two will do the trick. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Houston Humidity Happiness Houston rider here ... mildewed tack is our middle name. Just bought a vial of this, relatively cheap and figured eh, what could it hurt? Applied to my horse's bridal once about 2 weeks ago - so far so good, and usually mildew is a daily/every few days occurance in the spring/summer here. Gonna try it on my saddle next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just used this for the first time on a girth that had some previous mold/mildew issues. It left the leather looking and feeling wonderful, supple, without any signs of the mold.
