Wash-in cleaner for all horse rugs 
Safely revitalises insulation and water repellency

If a breathable waterproof rug loses its water repellency, it will suffer a severe reduction in its ability to breathe. This will lead to a build up of condensation on the inside of the rug so the horse will become clammy, cold and uncomfortable. Always use Nikwax Rug Wash for cleaning breathable waterproof horse rugs such as those made by Rambo.

When to use this product 

Always apply this product to new or used horse rugs to keep items in perfect condition. We recommend you clean items with Nikwax Rug Wash before proofing them with Nikwax Rug Proof. 

You should be able to wash reproofed rugs frequently. Re-proof rugs with Nikwax at least once a year.
