    Default Cleaning Stained Sheepskin Pads

    Hey Everyone,

    I've recently purchased a used sheepskin pad for my horse. It's in great condition, almost like new. The only problem with it is it's covered in brown dotted stains. Looks like coffee might of split on it. Any suggestions on how to get the stains out without ruining the sheepskin? Thanks for your help!

    Get a cleaner specifically for sheepskin- Melp and Pepede are the two that I know of. Do not use any other detergent or laundry products. I put mine in the washing machine on gentle and then air dry. If it is surface dirt and not a stain then a stiff brush usually does the trick.

    Thanks! I'll look into getting some cleaner made for sheepskin. These look like deep stains, I wasn't sure if your average sheepskin cleaner would get them out.

    I think the trick is to soak the pads in very warm water with some baking soda and melp, then wash on the gentle cycle with more melp. This has done it for me in the past.
