Care Instructions for
To remove any dirt, brush along the nap (in the direction of the hair, not backwards) using a
bristle comb or horse brush. To clean spills or extra dirty areas, use a
very small amount of shampoo on a
damp sponge. Sponge along the nap repeatedly. Rinse the sponge to
remove the shampoo and dirt and repeat until the hide is cleaned. Dry
using a towel running along the nap.
We also offer a
lanolin-based cleaner called Eucalan. Click HERE for more information.
