We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

    Melp - 250 ml is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Used to clean my older Mattes pad and it worked very well. My pad looks like new, soft and fluffy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Probably will not buy again This is a very small bottle for the price. After washing my sheepskin pads with the melp, I didn't think the result was that great. The pads were still dirty, and still smelled like horse sweat! :) I wasn't overly impressed with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I have a white horse so I get white fleece pads and boots. This detergant gets ALL the dirt and grime off everything and leaves the fleece looking extremely nice! I use it on all my fleece products too, not just Mattes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny For years I resisted buying Melp, thinking that it was a gimmick. I was finally tired of buying a new pad every single show season, since they didn't look very nice after a season of shows. I purchased Melp a few weeks ago - thinking that $10 was definitely worth trying as an alternative to buying yet another $200+ pad - and it brought some of my pads back to life! Took out the yellow tinge and softened the fibers again. Definitely buy Melp if you buy any real sheepskin pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Melp works very well for washing my horse's Mattes pad. You only need a small amount and it has a pleasant fragrance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MELP Helps! If you own a mattes pad with sheepskin you won't to run out. Mattes pads are expensive and MELP helps to keep them like new. I did not use MELP on my first mattes pad and the sheepskin broke down after regular use and washing.My new mattes pad's sheekskin is still like new. You do need to use more then the recommended amount and they need to sell it in a larger bottle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! I bought this stuff to wash my sheepskin half pad. I have been holding off on washing it because I thought that I would ruin the pad. This stuff worked great and it looks better than new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly Impressive I was so nervous to wash my expensive sheepskin pad for the first time, but I was thoroughly impressed by Melp. The sheepskin is soft, fluffy, white and spotless. It looks like new again. A friend noted that it does not clean the fabric as well, so I just pre-treated the dirty areas of the fabric with a little extra product and they came clean - not perfect, but near brand-new. The bottle is smaller than I expected (8 oz) and it will probably last four or five washings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleaner This got the sheepskin portion of my saddle pad nearly as white as when I first bought it. Excellent product.
    Date published: 2009-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for Sheepskin I use MELP exclusively for all of my sheepskin pads, girths, boots and even my deerskin breeches! MELP will return a sweaty, crusty removeable sheepskin girth or Mattes half pad to new condition. I have several Cliff Barnsby removeable sheepskin girths that I have owned for 6 yrs. Thanks to Melp the sheepskin has lasted and worn perfectly. The loft of the sheepskin has been retained and they look new. It's a bit expensive when compared to some of the competitors. HOWEVER, when caring for expensive pads, girths and boots, proper care equals longevity. Nothing else I have tried works as well as Melp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff EVER! I waited a long time to wash my Mattes Correction Pad because I was afraid that it wouldn't get washed too well by this Melp stuff. However, today I was SO surprised when it did a fantastic job cleaning my pad in the washer. It didn't get all of the dirt out on the fabric so I grabbed a wash cloth and cold water and dabbed a little of this on it and it cleaned right up to sparkling white again. I will buy this again and again because my pad was incredibly dirty and it looks like new again. Thanks Mattes! And I won't wait a long time to wash it, either.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Breeches Too! I use this product on my full seat deerskin breeches and it does a great job! It even helped soften and condition an ancient pair that had cracks in the leather. It didn't do a great job on the actual fabric, but who cares when you're full seats feel like "buttah"!
