Tips for a Tidy Tack Room

Are you trying to keep your tack care "stuff" organized and tidy? Sometimes it seems like a constant battle to keep the inevitable pile of soggy, goopy sponges from piling up in the tack room or tack trunk, making a mess of everything they touch. We got tired of our sponges getting away from us and accidentally conditioning our standing wraps, so we’ve got some tips to share with you on how to corral those pesky sponges once and for all!

1. Store you leather conditioner sponge in a resealable plastic sandwich bag. Instant control and portability!

Or even better…

2. Store your leather conditioner sponge in your empty conditioner jar! No mess! Bonus - you're being green by re-purposing/reusing your old conditioner jar!

With Love, From Horse Junkies United

Yes, we can fight the good fight in the tack cleaning arena! Horse Junkies United believes it, too, and recently wrote an amazing article on us and our products!

IMG_0877.jpg
I was by far the most impressed with the lack of film or tack left behind on my hands (and on the bridle!) after I was finished. Even after using both products, I was simply able to wash my hands to get rid of the dirty leftovers and I was left with a clean slate. Trust me – this was definitely a first for me.
......
I really hadn’t found a brand to be loyal to in this niche, but I’m going to have to add Sterling Essentials to the top of that new list after using it.

Perfect for On the Go

It never ceases to amaze me just how summertime is so busy. Shows, trips, trail rides, you name it - the calendar fills up quickly. If you're on the go this summer, think about packing light by taking travel sized products with you, such as our handy, pocket sized Leather Care Starter Set. This 2 oz. set of Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner is just perfect for your backpack, tack trunk, or ringside bag!

"Love at First Swipe", The Hunt Equestrian

We've received a beautiful write-up from The Hunt Equestrian, equestrian life and style blogger extraordinaire!

The cleaner is a suds-free liquid in a spray bottle, and you spray it onto a cloth or sponge. I highly prefer formulas like this, vs ones where you have to dampen the sponge first – it’s easy to get too much water on the leather. It was love at first swipe with this stuff – it immediately dissolves the dirt and grime, and wipes away clean. It gives the leather a beautiful glow with absolutely no residue.
....
I left my boots nice and dirty to test the cleaner, which got them clean in record time. A lot of cleaners just dilute the dirt and push it around, this stuff really got them clean. After using the cleaner, they shined up with polish SO easily and got way shinier than they have in years.

I want to say I was VERY impressed with the cleaner – these photos are from the quickest and most lazy cleaning job ever. I sprayed a couple of sprays on my sponge, wiped the whole boot down and BAM – Done. It was literally less than a minute per boot.
