Wash-in cleaner for all horse rugs

Safely revitalises insulation and water repellency. If a breathable waterproof rug loses its water repellency, it will suffer a severe reduction in its ability to breathe. This will lead to a build up of condensation on the inside of the rug so the horse will become clammy, cold and uncomfortable. Always use Nikwax Rug Wash for cleaning breathable waterproof horse rugs such as those made by Rambo.

Does what it says! Nice waterproof horse rugs again!

Nikwax Rug Wash 1L

Used for washing before reproofing. Rugs were still a little dirty after the first wash so I just ran them through on another cycle without adding any more rug wash and that brought them up clean. They were dirty though when they went in!,
