  • Fav laundry detergent for saddle pads/oily sweat dirt?

    I LOVED Wisk. Not so sure about it's replacement Persil. Tide didn't handle the sweat/skin oil stains on my saddle pads (show pads, so put on a clean horse!). I already add Oxyclean and Biz. Havn't tried Boraxo in a while. I have hard water..... Suggestions? What do you like?

  • #2
    Love Persil. Gets whites really white. And smells good. Its all I use now for horse laundry and regular laundry. And a little goes a long way.


    • #3
      Yes, loved Wisk. I use Arm & Hammer now and it's okay. Try the A&H with oxiclean or you could just throw some good old Dawn in there. I've done it and it works great. You just have to be careful not to use too much or you get more bubbles than actual soap.

        I like the Kirkland brand in the orange container plus Oxyclean.

              Rockin' Green Activewear detergent.

                Try adding a cup of ammonia to the washer. It helps cut the oils.

                  Don't know about saddle pads but I used Simple Green to get grease out of my aprons when I worked in the kitchen of a steakhouse. Worked very well.

                      Maybe I'll try Persil again.

                        I love Dawn, it has 1001 uses.

                            Washing soda. Very low cost, and highly effective.

                                Add Biz. Amazing stuff for dirt, sweat, etc.

                                  Nellies laundry detergent is fantastic (available from Costco online). Their oxygen brightener really makes whites pop as well. I appreciate that it rinses out well and doesn’t seem to leave residue behind.
