Don’t leave your pads dirty.
It’s safe and recommended to wash your Ecogold saddle pads regularly.
Wash the saddle pads by themselves, 2 or 3 at a time depending on the capacity of the washing machine. Do not overload the machine.
Use warm water and choose delicate / casual cycle – fast spinning will make the pad wear out faster.
Use a good chlorine-free detergent plus a good chlorine-free bleach (Oxyclean works very well). For hard to remove stains, you may have to apply a stain remover before washing.
Hang to dry or put in the dryer for 5-10 minutes in COOL temperature. HOT AIR could damage the saddle pad, and we certainly don’t want you to hurt your saddle pad.
If the pads do not come out clean, you may have:
- Overloaded the machine – try putting fewer pads in the washing machine..
- Used the wrong detergent or bleach – try a good quality chlorine-free detergent and bleach.
- Washed the pads after too many uses – try washing them more often.
