Cleaning Horse Tack

Kirk's remedies and recipes are suggestions provided by customers like you and are in no way guaranteed to work for all.


  • Kirk's Coco Castile Soap (Original or Fragrance Free)


  • Wet a clean sponge and rub on Kirk's Castile soap
  • Rub in small circles on tack until it lathers (do not get sponge too wet)
  • Continue rinsing sponge in clean water and rub until leather is clean from debris and dirt
  • You may have to get clean water several times
  • Take a clean sponge and water and wipe off all soap residues
  • Be cautious as excess soap residue will dry out the tack
  • Continue rinsing the sponge until you have wiped the entire piece of tack down
  • Remember to wring most of the water off of your sponge, you don’t want it sopping wet
  • It is recommended that you follow up with a leather conditioner/oil


Kirks always recommends that you try a small test patch before extensive use.
