Follow these easy steps to safely clean, waterproof and store your blankets for next year.

Step 1: If your blanket is caked with mud or really dirty, gently hose blanket off before washing.

Step 2: If your blanket has a lot of horse hair stuck in lining, you may want to vacuum as much hair as possible out (this is why we prefer smooth nylon lined blankets!)

Step 3: Wash in a FRONT Loader washing machine (do NOT use an agitator style washing machine - the agitator damages the fabric and can permanently ruin the fiber fill insulation).

  • Use cold water
  • Use the bulky item cycle if your machine has it
  • Use the low spin speed cycle
  • Use a detergent specially made to maintain waterproofing - we use and recommend Rambo Blanket Wash

Step 4: Hang your blankets on a fence to dry (do NOT put in dryer as it will ruin waterproofing and can damage the fabric).

Do NOT Use Agitator Style Washer
Agitators can damage the outer shell of your blanket and compromise the fiber fill distribution. Blanket manufacturers will not honor warranty claims if blanket is washed in an agitator style machine.

Use a Front Loading Machine
If your front loading machine has a bulky cycle, use it. We recommend cold water and a low spin speed.

Hang Blankets on Fence to Dry
Do NOT put your turnout blankets in a dryer. The heat ruins the waterproofing and can damage the outer shell.

Check for waterproofness and re-waterproof if necessary

Step 5. Once your blankets are clean and dry, now is a good time to see if they are still waterproof. Take a cup of water, and pour over blanket. Water should bead up and roll off, if not, it is time to re-waterproof.

We treated this old turnout with Dry Guys Waterproofing.

Step 6 (Optional): Re-waterproof your turnouts. Trust us, do it now, so when it is 35 degrees and pouring next Fall and you need your blanket waterproof, you will be glad you didn't procrastinate! We like Dry Guys Waterproofing Spray (also comes in a concentrate). Spray your blanket evenly with the Dry Guys. Let it dry and do a second coat. One regular bottle does 2 blankets well. 

Step 7 (Optional): If your blanket has any nicks or tears, you can repair them easily using Rambo Stormsure and Rambo Rug Repair Kit. You can also replace leg straps and tail cords if they are worn.

Step 8. Store safely for next year. If you have the original blanket bag, you can use it or we also like using the Space Bags. If using a Space Bag, you may want to put the content details on an paper insert (easier to read then writing on bag).  Be sure to store in a rodent free area - it would be a big bummer to find a hole chewed in your carefully cleaned and stored blanket!


Trust us, next winter pulling your fresh, clean, waterproof blanket out of its storage bag will be ALMOST as rewarding as buying a new one!
