Q.How do you clean your suede helmet?
A. Place on the top rack of your dishwasher with no soap, leave out to dry. Should come out looking brand new and smelling fresh. -Jacqueline Sauve
Q.How do you make your breeches so white?
A. Try your best to protect your breeches from stains, tear-aways are a practical solution to wear when tacking up, ripping them off just before you get on. However, it is inevitable that whites will become discoloured around the barn, so for those unruly stains produced by the black polish on boots and from your saddle, I suggest the following...apply Oxy Clean directly on the spot(s) and rub in, letting your breeches soak in water over night. The next morning, take a bristly brush and scrub the stains. Afterwards, place them in the washing machine and leave in the sun to dry. This applies to your show pads as well. Please note: this is fairly harsh on the fabric, so limit your use of this technique.-Candie Ingham
