how do you keep your waterproof blankets/sheets waterproof?
After trying repeatedly to re waterproof my turnouts...(tried various products etc) I've broken down this year and just ordered two 1200 denier attached neck waterproof turnout sheets. (I prefer the sheets and then use stall blanket/or fleece liners for warmth, since those are easier to wash more often and don't have to stay waterproof)
I want to know: do any of you 'treat' your brand new waterproof turnouts before using/washing with any additional waterproofing?
What are your favorite tried and true blanket wash products that clean well, but most importantly don't wash out the waterproofness?
And finally, do you routinely, at intervals re treat to maintain the waterproofness? i.e...say, after 4 washings always retreat or after each season always retreat,? etc etc? and if so, what do you use?
I'm so tired of an entire collection of nice blankets and sheets that I simply cannot trust or use because they are no longer waterproof!
