How to Care for Your WeatherBeeta Blanket

Your horse’s turnout blankets may need to be cleaned from time to time—and certainly after each season.

Some blankets can be machine-washed at home, depending on the capacity of your washer and machine specifications. Check your blanket manufacturer’s recommendations. If you are in any doubt, seek out the services of a local professional blanket-washing business to care for your blanket.

To wash your turnout blanket at home:

  1. Remove excess dirt, mud and hair.
  2. Remove all detergent buildup from your detergent dispenser.
  3. Place your blanket in a mesh wash bag to contain all the straps and buckles, protecting them and your machine from damage.
  4. Machine wash your blanket in cool water (maximum 85 F) on a gentle cycle using mild soap or a blanket-cleaning wash. (Always follow the manufacturer’s washing instructions.)
  5. Do not use detergents or fabric conditioners as you risk compromising the waterproof and breathable coating.
  6. If you find that water no longer beads off the surface of your turnout, rewaterproof your blanket to add durable water repellency and revitalize breathability. 
  7. Line-dry your blanket; do not tumble dry.
