WATERPROOFING

 

WASH-IN WATERPROOFING

 

Using household detergents on your waterproof blankets breaks down the waterproofed surface that protects your horse. Waterproofing adds water repellency to horse blankets, which protects your horse while maintaining the life of the blanket’s fabric. We offer a wash-in waterproofing for your blankets. To maintain water repellency, we recommend waterproofing or re-waterproofing your items once a year with: 

 

  • Nikwax Rug Proof or
  • Nikwax Tech Wash

(Environmentally safe)

 

 

WAXING

 Waxing (for extreme turnout blankets) is another form of waterproofing. Waxing is a 2-step process where a wax dressing is applied to the blanket and is melted into the fabric creating a heavy waxy surface coat. To maintain this type of water repellency, we recommend waxing or re-waxing your items once a year with: 

·        Barbour Thornproof Dressing
