Keeps our tack soft, supple and shiny

July 14, 2016

The leather cleaner is fantastic. It cleans sweat off our tack very well and keeps our tack soft, supple and shiny. A small amount mixed with water in a spray bottle is great at removing the sweaty, dirty grime from the inside of riding boots and leaves a nice shine when wiped over the whole boot.

Jackson's Saddle Repair chooses Warhorse Leather Cleaner

March 3, 2016

The product is easy to use...I use it straight, just a few drops on a damp sponge. Then I use a dry one to wipe off excess. It doesn’t leave a residue in the handiwork and brings out the color in the tooled leather, that you see here. This is a custom built saddle, and we’re pretty particular about what we use. The smell isn’t industrial and my hands feeling good afterwards is an added bonus.

We select them [products] for publication based on the experience and knowledge we have of many companies and products out there. We do use many of the products.  In this instance, we did use the leather cleaner on a well-used Vanson leather jacket and were pleased with the results.

Cleans off the bugs that smash themselves on the jacket while riding

Restore old leather with one application

Your product is great. The Warhorse cleans as well as moisturizes the leather. I use it to clean the bugs that smash themselves onto the jacket while riding. Thanks for the samples as well.  I have shared them with friends.  Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Today, old leather can be cleaned and preserved a number of ways, including still using neat's-foot oil.  The techniques have never changed. Scuffed up and worn leather is typical of the wear holsters endured on the open range.  Warhorse all-natural leather deep cleaning soap and conditioner can help restore old leather in one application with a classic combination of vegetable glycerin, saponified vegetable oils, water and citric acid. Warhorse removes dirt, cleans and protects. It took only a few minutes to get the well-worn holster shown looking almost like new.  After drying overnight, a little hand rubbing brought back a nice luster.  Warhorse won't restore your old gun, but so long as you keep it holstered no one will be the wiser!

Thirty-year-old boots look as good as the day I bought them.

May 7, 2014

After leaving a pair of thirty-year-old pair of boots in a damp environment for too long, they had gotten moldy.  I tried Warhorse leather cleaner on them and they looked as good as the day I bought them.  Couldn’t believe the difference!

18 year old Jetton Leather furniture lives!

February 3, 2014

Warhorse Leather Cleaner & Conditioner brought my 18 year old Jetton Leather furniture back to near new condition. I love my leather furniture, but at 18 years old, it had been a chore to keep it cleaned and properly conditioned. Over the years, I have tried cleaners which did little if any to condition the leather. I have used conditioners which did little if any cleaning. I noticed that some of the seating surfaces were getting in dire need of my attention, and decided to give Warhorse a try. I had heard praises about the product, so I decided to take before and after pictures, which are attached.
WOW!!!! Warhorse is the most efficient cleaner and conditioner I have used. The cleaning properties were so efficient that no scrubbing was needed. Just follow the instructions, and the soiled areas wipe clean. The dry leather “drank” the conditioner in almost as quickly as the cloth pulled the soiled spots away. Within minutes, I would have been comfortable sitting on the furniture with my best dress pants. There was no oily or waxy residue. OK, how is it going to look in a couple of weeks? Please note the attached pictures. The dry faded picture is the “before” and the other is how it looks now, nearly three weeks later. I will never use any other product on my leather furniture. I am now using Warhorse All Purpose Cleaner as my ‘go to’ cleaner for a multitude of tasks at home and at work. It is hard to beat Warhorse’s products, especially with their commitment to delivering only environmentally friendly products which actually work.

It is the best tack cleaner and conditioner I have ever used

February 3, 2014

I started using Warhorse soap several years ago.  I first used it on the vehicles and was amazed out how well it worked.  It removed all the black goo from the trees off my horse trailers and the suicidal bugs off my vehicles.  I pulled the mats out of the back of the horse trailers, cleaned them, and cleaned out the entire back area.  Looks NEW!  Now it is my main household cleaner and laundry detergent.  I had a syringe explode on me while giving a horse a shot and was splattered with blood.  It removed all the blood stains from my shirt.  I also use it to wash my dogs and horses. 

Best of all (being a horse person) it is the best tack cleaner and condition I have ever used.  I have gone from a pantry in the house and tack shelf in the barn full of cleaners to one cleaner for everything. 


Cleaned more than just my leather.

I’m a neighbor of someone who agreed to try some of your glycerin cleaning soap. I’m very glad I did.  I love it. I tried it first on my tired-looking stainless steel kitchen sinks.  Nice.  Then I did the cook top.  Even nicer.

Some time went by. I had run out of my (previous) favorite cleaning product, Murphy’s Oil Soap, and tried the soap on our cherry wood floors.  I don’t like to use harsh products on the wood and this was perfect.

I just finished working on my riding boots and dressage saddle and feel the need to e-mail you about the results. Spectacular!  The saddle has two different kinds of leather: one is smooth and the other has a grain. The grainy part has always been a challenge to get right.  It looks like new!

As if that weren’t enough, I had a little left and tried it on our glass shower stall doors.  They also have a grainy surface that holds on to mineral deposits from the soap & water and never really looks clean, even with scrubbing.  It does now, and I didn’t have to scrub. 

So, I’m a believer.  How do I get a supply??
