Moorland Rider has extended its range of innovative equestrian products to include the new Padded Wash-Bag, a product made to make washing synthetic items with hard elements in a domestic washing machine a viable option.
The zipped bag is 28cm x 40cm and incorporates specialist open cell foam padding that protects the machine’s drum during a cycle. The fabric outer acts as a filtration system allowing water and detergent through to wash away dirt and grease, but prevents hair escaping and clogging the filter. The foam cushions the machine’s drum and helps to prevent damage when washing items such as headcollars, lead ropes, brushes and other objects with metal components. After the machine’s cycle has finished, clean items should be removed, the bag shaken, and it’s ready to be used again.
“This product has been created as the ‘big sister’ to our Brush Wash-Bag,” says Caroline Graham from Moorland Rider. “The larger size makes it even more useful for bigger items such as headcollars and surcingles that need to be washed. Using a washing machine to clean your horse’s kit saves a lot of time and also makes it easier to maintain hygiene around the yard, but we appreciate that, until now, it’s been tricky to wash larger items with metal or plastic parts in a washing machine. The Padded Wash-Bag addresses this problem head on, and makes it easier than ever to keep your horse’s kit clean."
The Padded Wash-Bag is available in black, in one size, and has a RRP of £22.95.
