Does anyone have any good, inexpensive "green" cleaning products to use to clean horse stall walls with? I don't want to use any toxic chemicals to clean the walls, so I am looking for some good green ideas. Thanks everyone!
Not necessarily what you're looking for, but I know of several people who have lined their stalls with puckboard. The stuff is very hard, the surface impervious (it withstands puck and stick abuse from rabid hockey players). In addition to standing up to kicks, it is said to be very easy to clean -- nothing sticks, like teflon.
like dr. brommer's, or similar. safe. cleans great. you can get it in lavender or peppermint. i use it for everything -facial wash, horse shampoo, dog shampoo, and even laundry detergent when i run out.
A little tip here I discovered today.
I had to wash the stall fronts. I simple green'd and scrubbed, didn't do it. So, I took out the pressure washer and away I went.
Then I had a pool, well a few pools of water. I was thinking I would never get rid of the water, and then Voila...the shop vac. How genius(actually, I didn't think of it, my help suggested it). I have had such a good day...hosing, shop vac'ing.
Now, I am deciding what to do with those stall fronts...stain them, leave them, what.
I thnk tomorrow, I am doing the white vinegar. I am in a cleaning mode! Now that I know the shop vac will come to my rescue!
Nice! Well, I am not so sure I can bring in a pressure washer into the farm that my horse is at as it's not my barn. The walls are concrete and painted white so you can see the stains and nastiness everywhere. It's icky. But I will have to do your other suggestions! Thank you.
