Manufacturer: Passier (View all products by Passier)

Model: Saddle Soap (View all Saddle Soap reviews)

Category: Tack Room

Purchase: I bought this from Smart Pak for 14.95 plus shipping. I definitely recommend SmartPak. Very fast delivery

Likes: I like that this cleaner smells nice. It's kind of a creme consistency which makes it easy to apply. When using it, I don't notice a lot of residue left on my tack which is something I've found happens when using other cream type cleaners.

Dislikes: The directions are kind of weird. "Before using, the leather should be sponged off with warm water. Then apply Saddle Soap with a clean damp sponge and rub in. After that, rinse the leather with warm water" Rinse with warm water? I found this step of the directions quite strange. Plus when using on a saddle, its kind of hard to "rinse" it. While this cream does not leave any residue, I have found that it does not do a very good job of cutting through the really tough grime and sweat on really dirty tack. Think a nasty sweaty bridle that has not been cleaned in ages. I have also noticed that it seems to take color out of tack. I used it to routine clean a (high quality I might add) bridle. The bridle was not very dirty at all and I noticed some color rubbing off on the sponge. Since I have never experienced this happening with other cleaners on this bridle, I have to attribute this quality to the Saddle Soap.

Quality: The Saddle Soap come in a sturdy tin with its own sponge. It's fairly sturdy and I have no complaints about the construction.

Summary: I probably will not buy Passier Saddle Soap again. I have used other products that clean better and I do not have to worry about them taking color out of my tack. That said I do HIGHLY recommend Passier Lederbalsam; check out my review of that as well.
