"Do not use bleach." That's what the tag on my white Dover saddle pad says, but it was disgusting and a regular wash cycle even with a scoop of OxiClean just was not cutting it.
So I added a capful of bleach. I thought, "it's just a white saddle pad, what could it hurt?" I rinsed the pad thoroughly in hot water and put it through two wash cycles, just to be safe.
Yup, I bleached my horse.
