Welcome to Anchorage Equine Laundry Service!
Your Anchorage based horse blanket cleaning and repair service.
Cleaning, Repairs and Waterproofing:
All blankets are washed in a large sized front-load washer using either Rambo Wash, Schneiders Blanket Wash or vinegar for extra sensitive horses. Waterproofing is done using Nikwax Rug Proof. Blankets are hung to drip-dry.
Nylon and cotton sheets, coolers
Rain sheets, turnout sheets
Winter blanket with hood
Saddle pads, wraps, etc.
Excess dirt or hair (requiring 2nd wash)
additional $5 or $10 depending
* Call and discuss first anything that needs cleaning and is not listed above *
Re-proofing (Waterproofing): $35 clean and then waterproof
Only blankets that originally were waterproof can be re-proofed, and the sad fact is that once they are past a year or two old, they will never be quite like new. BUT, it is definitely worth re-proofing your waterproof blankets once a year. First I do a regular wash to get the blanket clean, and then a waterproofing wash, and additionally a waterproofing spray after the blanket comes out of the wash.
I can do repairs as needed, and can repair just about anything, only in rare occasions are repairs not possible. I stock buckles, snaps, nylon webbing and various pieces of hardware needed to repair blankets. I make an effort to patch blankets with matching fabrics, although this is not always possible, and in those cases I use a default color, black. All stitching is in black and done using an industrial sewing machine.
Major repair: $30 (possible additional charges in the case of extensive repairs)
Minor repair: $15
Any repairs taking 5 minutes or less I will only charge materials, and if no metal hardware is needed then the repair is FREE! These kinds of repairs include a small hole, or small rip in the lining, something of that nature, easily repaired and usually only requiring a small patch.
