Caring for your Epic Rugs & Hoods
Your Epic rugs & hoods will need cleaning at least once a year certainly after each season. It is possible to clean your rug at home if you have a machine with a drum big enough to accomodate them. If you are in any doubt on how to care for your rugs & hoods we recommend using a professional equine laundry or cleaning service. For best results we recommend reproofing at the time of cleaning.
Caring for your rug at home
Remove excess mud, dirt & hair
Fasten all straps, if possible put in a mesh bag to protect your rug and drum from any possible damage
Machine wash on a gentle cycle using a rug wash such as Nikwax rug wash following the manufacturers washing instructions
Do not use detergents or fabric conditioners as this will affect the rugs waterproof and breathable coating
For best results we recommend re-proofing to add water repellency and revitalise the breathability. Use a rug proofer such as Nikwax rug proof always follow the manufacturers instructions
Line dry do not tumble dry useless it states on the care label that tumble drying is acceptable.
