    Default items under $20 alot

    I use lots of things under $20 and so many aren't horsey items that work so well. Got me to thinking others do as well and maybe give some of us ideas. I get a bag full of pom poms at fabric store instead of paying much more at tack store. Don't remember what they were called. Didn't have tack store in town where I use to live. So got use to using non horse items.

    - PINK for manes and tails, find it at Walmart. Great stuff, comes in a big pink aerosol can.

    - Scarlet oil for wounds, kind of "old school" but works great.

    - Homemade fly spray, using vinegar, eucalyptus oil, and citronella oil. Waaaay cheaper than store bought fly spray.

    Unscented baby wipes! Great for wiping down bits, your hands, or cleaning up a minor scratch. I also use it wipe down my Thinline pad.

    On the 'Great for wiping down bits' I certainly hope the bit is the wipe chemical residue is washed off with water!? The best thing for bit cleaning is wiping the bit off the minute you take the bridle off, right as you hang it wherever you put it right after removing it. Periodically wash the bit with warm water, using an old toothbrush if needed in any crevice type spots, and dry with a towel.

    Ok, can someone explain what exact PINK product you're using? I"ve found some, but there seems to be quite a few products in their line. I'd like to try it, but not sure what product to buy.......?

    TIA

    I have the hair lotion stuff I use for conditioning. They also have a shine spray that's aerosal that's great for detangling.
