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.

    Effax Mildew-Free for Leather is rated 4.5625 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Mildew Yet... I haven't ridden my horse in his double bridle for a couple of months, and mold and mildew was growing on it, especially around the stitching. With the rainy winter weather and keeping it in my tack locker, I thought this might help keep the mildew from growing even when I'm not cleaning it regularly. I used the product about two weeks ago, and so far no mildew has returned! Was easy to use - I ended up just spraying it onto the sponge and then rubbing it on the bridle like a conditioner. Wish it was a little cheaper though - I can only probably use it 2-3 times with the size of the bottle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps slow down mildew growth I love the Effax product line so I was excited to see they made a Mildew Free for leather because we were in desperate need of it. We are in Virginia near VA Beach and we have a lot of humidity. Have a horrible mildew problem in our tack room. I take good care of my tack, cleaning it often but the mildew would be back within 5 days. I started using this and it significantly slows it down (can go 1-2 weeks without reapplying) but does not keep it from happening. But I don't think that's the product's fault, I think we just have a serious humidity and mildew problem. I am happy it slows it down because otherwise I have to clean the mildew off my tack to ride and then clean again after. It smells ok, does add shine to tack. I only gave it 3 stars for value because it is a small bottle and is kind of pricey- I go through a lot. Every time I go to order, it is backordered. I think I will stock up the next time it comes in. Very impressed with the Effax line.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effax I love the Effax line! So I didnt even think twice about purchasing the mildew-Free. This past year has been pretty rough on my english tack. Even though my edgewood bridles are very well taken care of, the crazy weather left them very open to mold and mildew. Since applying this product I have not seen any more!! Plus it smells great and leaves the leather feeling soft! I use a sponge to rub the product in after leaving it set for a few min. The bottle is smaller than I thought and I am not sure how long it will last that is why the value got 3 stars. But it is an Effax product so the quality is great!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably good for run-of-the-mill mold I'm thinking this would be good for your every day run of the mill mold, but it's not quite enough for the industrial strength radioactive super human mold I tried to use it on! A crazy humid and hot summer in a new climate and a perpetually wet tack locker has caused some of the fastest growing mold I've ever seen in my life. Literally 24-48 hours after a full cleaning and everything is covered in a thick layer of green mold. I don't blame the Effax -- it actually does seem to slow it down a bit, but unless I just DRENCHED everything it it every day (and it's too expensive to use that much every day) it doesn't seem to hold it at bay.So in conclusion, I think it actually is a good product, but from now on I'll use it 1) to prepare tack for long term storage, and 2) in seasons other than the summer. But other than that, I'm going to just start keeping nothing extra made of leather in my locker and realize that in the summer at least I'm going to have to clean my bridle before I ride, as well as after.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Florida Summer Test Passed Florida in the summer is very very humid. I have a few pieces of leather tack that don't get used every day that used to get moldy in 2 or 3 days. The underside of my saddle used to get moldy every day too. After using this spray I haven't had any mold appear on anything. I've only applied it once so far so I'm pretty sure it's going to last me a very long time. It isn't greasy and you can't even tell it's on the leather!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! Works great! My tackroom at the barn I board at is not enclosed from the rest of the barn -- so it is exposed to many elements (hot, cold, humidity, dust, etc) and this stuff protects my bridles and saddles. Would love to see more Effax products from SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Effax was recommended to me for use on a Stubben saddle that had become very dry. The Effax conditioned the leg flaps and made them soft and supple again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works In the tack room my bridle was covered in mold, I had to wipe it down every couple days. I even hung a Damp-Rid bag in my locker. A girl at my barn suggested Effax so I ordered one the same day from SmartPak. Just in time, as we are having one of the hottest Junes in history here in Virginia. Humidity is 73% with a heat index of 101. I checked today and no mold in sight!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failed the ultimate test After cleaning a bridle I almost never use that was very mildewed and applying this product, I waited to see what would happen. Within a few weeks, the mildew was back.But the conditions the bridle were extreme. Shortly after cleaning the bridle my area was plunged into a very, very wet period. Water would collect in empty buckets kept inside the barn and the interior walls of my tack room looked like they'd been rained on.I don't know that anything could have kept mildew from growing.
