Show Coat Laundry Guide

January 1, 2016

If you have bought a show coat this year, you were probably told that it can be washed -- in the washer. Some of you say - how can that be???  Well it can be and it is -- here's how.


My favourite coats (and those featured at EQ) are Winston Equestrian, Sarm Hippique, Asmar, Grand Prix, and Pikeur.  They are all indeed washable and best if you have a front-loading washer (though not impossible if you don't).


The best way to wash a show coat:

  1. Turn coat inside out

  2. Place in a lingerie (mesh) bag

  3. Wash on gentle, low suds, on cold -- try using Micro Wash from Hey -- preferably in a front-loading washer

    (top loaders have the center agitator which increases the risk of having the coat caught and possibly damaged -- so be vigilant if using)

  4. Remove promptly from washer

  5. Put on hanger to dry -- do not put in dryer or try to "fluff" on low heat -- don't iron

Your breeches are also of course washable in cold water (inside out) and hang dry.


Hope that helps.  If the manufacturer of your coat has other instructions -- then of course follow those. 

Let us know what you think.
