    Default Blanket cleaning/repair near DC

    Does anyone have any suggestions for reasonably priced blanket cleaning/repair in the DC area? Thanks!

    I've used Outback, in Laurel, MD, and been happy. I remember not being astonished by the price. http://www.mdoutbackleather.com/

    Dover in Crofton offers cleaning too. http://www.doversaddlery.com/crofton...l-store/a/354/ Which leads me to suspect so does the one in Chantilly, if you'd rather head the VA route.

    I know there are some in Middleburg too, if you want to head that far.

    Dover in Crofton has a lady named Shim that does the cleaning and repairs. She does excellent work and is well priced.

    Also Kathy Recknor/Horse Blanket Kare in Germantown (just past the end of River Road) - her turnaround is not quite as fast as TLC

    If you're on the Maryland side of DC, I definitely second Outback Leather in Laurel.

    I've had good luck with Outback in Laurel as well.

    Another vote for Yvonne at Equine TLC. Good turnaround, good prices, very meticulous. She has bent over backwards to help me out a couple times -- a very nice lady.

    I've had issues with waterproofing with Kathy, but I've been happy with her cleaning & repair.
