What Customers Say:
Orvus® WA Paste Shampoo is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go-to soap. Must have item! I use this shampoo on my horse, Lucky, and my dogs, Bella and Zoey. Be aware if you use too much you will be rinsing into next week to get out the lather. So dilute it by putting about a 1/4 cup into a gallon of water to make a shampoo solution. A little goes a long way! There is no scent or color to it. I wet my horse and dogs down first, pour the shampoo over the body, and work it through the coat. Do that and you will see the dirt literally dripping off the dog. This is quite a bit cheaper and works even better than the leading pet shampoos. This soap rinses off very well leaving no residue. I've been using this shampoo for years. It takes grass stains and manure stains right off. It leaves my animals soft and clean without drying out their skin. I use this for my horse laundry. Right now during covid where I am washing my hands constantly, my skin started cracking and thinning. I decided to try the Orvus paste for hand washing. I filled my soap dispenser with it. It is awesome! My hands are healing nicely. It is so gentle. I highly recommend this product as a staple in your tack trunk and for home use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I'd always wondered why a few riders would use this old-timey looking shampoo, but looking at their horses made me want to try and I finally did. Both of my retired geldings look show-ready after just one bath with this stuff. This soap rinses off easily leaving their hair soft and shiny with no residue/scent whatsoever. Also, they seem a lot less itchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! Highly concentrated and very effective. I use Orvus to bathe my horse and he comes out so clean, works great on his white socks and doesn't irritate his skin or dry out his coat. I also use this to wash his open front jump boots and brushing boots, just some water and an old soft brush gets rid of the dirt and odor and washes out easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shampoo out there! Best shampoo to use before body clipping! Makes clipping an ease, as well as keeps my horses coat silky, shiny, and repels dirt ! Definitely worth the price, since a little goes a long way! It lasts forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shampoo overall it did a great job and I was very pleased . However, i bought it specifically hoping it would get yellow stains out of a gray horse and sadly in spite of my best efforts it did not do the trick. Honestly, I am not sure what does!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works amazingly on gray horses. Almost all of my horses are gray because they are mostly all related to a stallion that only throws grays. This product makes them look shiny white and actually seemed to help repel the dirt. Any stains that they did get on them could be washed away with just water after using this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog Shampoo Great product. I use it weekly on my 3 dogs. My only complaint is living in high desert area in Central Oregon the consistency of this product changes with the temperature which makes getting it out of container complicated. Summer it is liquid, winter it is very solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orvus Paste Wash Bought some years ago to wash heirloom table linens, and delicate quilts. A small jar cost me $10. Orvus helps get out stains and yellowing in fabric. I like how it rinses out quickly. We’ve been using it to wash the dog - it works really well getting sticky sap and vegetation out of his long coat. Actually haven’t used it on the horse. If it works so well on the dog it should be great on Red. It would be interesting to see how white his socks will get.
