HOW IT WORKS . . .
the wash-bag acts like a filtration system for your washing machine. It works by retaining all horse hair inside the bag during the wash cycle, whilst allowing a free flow of water through the bag to clean your items.
AFTER WASHING . . . any trapped horse hair can be easily shaken out of the bag, ready for re-use.
LEAVES YOUR MACHINE CLEAN . . . using the wash-bag leaves your washing machine completely clean and free from hair.
HELPS PREVENT BUCKLE DAMAGE . . . the wash-bag also prevents buckle damage to your machine when washing items such as girths and rugs.
EASY TO USE . . . the wash-bag is very user friendly with a zip front closure and useful hanging loop. When not in use, the wash-bag is handy for storing away your horse laundry until ready for washing.

Q. What can I wash in the Horsewear Wash-bag?
A. You can wash most horsewear in the wash-bag including: stable rugs, numnahs, exercise sheets, coolers, fleeces, fly rugs, fly masks, halters, ropes, lunge lines, bandages, pads, girths, travel boots, brushing boots and rubber over-reach boots. The wash-bag can also be used for pet items too, such as pet clothing, towels and bedding.
Q. What size bag do I need?
A. There are three sizes of Horsewear Wash-bag (small, large and jumbo).
Small: Ideal for washing items such as girths, bandages, pads, fly mask or fringes, headcollars, small boots such as brushing or bell boots.
Large: For the above plus numnahs and thin rugs, such as coolers fly rugs and thin stable rugs, also travel boots.
Jumbo: For the above plus thicker rugs... please remember, if you rug won't already fit in your washing machine - it's too big to wash yourself and you will need it professionally cleaned.
Q. My washing machine has a standard 6kg drum, which wash-bag will I need?
A. Either the small, large or jumbo wash-bag are suitable for a 6kg drum.
Q. Will I be able to put my 6ft 9" fly sheet in the wash-bag?
A. Yes, that size of sheet will fit in either the large or jumbo horsewear wash-bag.
Q. Can I wash more than one item together at the same time?
A. Yes you can put items together inside the bag or wash hair covered items in the bag and other items loose in the washing machine. Do not overload, items need room to move around to wash correctly.
Q. What washing powder do I need?
A. It's fine to use your usual washing detergant, but for best results we recommend using a liquid detergant directly inside the bag.
Q. What temperature should I wash at?
A. Follow the manufactures washing instructions for the item being washed. If not known wash at 40 degrees. The maximum temperature we recommend is 60 degrees, although the Wash-bag has successfully been tested at a temperature of 90 degrees.
Q. Can I put the bag into my tumble dryer?
A. Yes, the wash-bag can either be tumble dried alone or with the items still inside. Use the high heat setting.
Q. Can I put a white numnah inside the wash-bag?
A. Yes you can! and don't worry about it. The orange colour of the wash-bag will not discolour the item being washed.
Q. My boots are covered in mud, can I put them straight into the bag?
A. We recommend removing as much dirt and hair as possible from items before washing. Particually with boots as they can get extremely muddy during the winter months. We also recommend that very dirty items be washed seperately.
Q. I have noticed that horse hair has stuck to the velcro on my travel boots after washing them in the bag?
A. Horse hair is attracted to velcro, make sure the velcro tabs are closed together during the wash. Also make sure that you shake the loose hair out of the wash-bag after every wash.
