Re: [RC] leather cleaner - Sharon Levasseur

For cleaning and preventing mold and mildew, I like LeatherSafe.

Lauretta,
I'm a bit behind on this and can't help you with saddle cleaning items,
but wanted to tell you and others of a great item to help prevent this
type of thing; I use it in my horse trailer.  It's called Damp-Rid; you
can sometimes find it in the laundry section  (I know Wal-Green's
carries it, at least here).  It's a small plastic container with a black
insert that has slots in it.  There are these little white beads; you
open  the package and pour them in the black insert.  In a tack room
you'd then just set it on a shelf; in the trailer I cover it with
netting so the little beads don't bounce out.  The beads absorb moisture
and turn to a thick liquid and goes through the slots.  When all are
gone you empty it out of the bottom and refill; you can get half-gallon
size refills or I recently found 5# buckets on clearance at Meijer.
It's great stuff!  I have a storage box on the side of my trailer that
really draws dampness and since I've been using this I haven't found any
mildew.  I think I refilled the things -- I have 2 of them -- 2-3 times
last year, from April to Oct, which was maybe the amount in one refill
size.  It's not too expensive.

==========================================

I just moved my tack to a different tack room; it is a little damp, and I
saw a small amount of mildew show on my saddle the
other day!  I am NOT happy.

Lauretta and Shaba (just don't get that icky stuff on me..I
prefer mud instead :)> )
