Description:
Effective in a wide range of cleaning tasks! Orvus can be used in cleaning rugs and upholstery, hand washing delicate fabrics, and washing livestock. A little Orvus goes a long way.


Directions:

  • Wet horse all over
  • In a washing mitt or sponge, take a hand full and apply to horse
  • Clean horse thoroughly, working in a circular motion to clean deep into the hair
  • Rinse horse off thoroughly

 

Ingredients:
Sodium lauryl sulfate, lauryl alcohol, sodium sulfate and water. No phosphate, biodegradable surfactants.

                Comments about Orvus Paste Shampoo:

                This product performed very well for cleaning various sheep and mohair goat fleeces. It has been recommended through various fiber spinning resources and I can see why! I appreciate that a lower water temperature can be used and that not much product is needed even for difficult-to-clean fleeces. Fleece is left unscented and soft, with no dulling residue from the product.

                Comments about Orvus Paste Shampoo:

                I used the Orvus paste shampoo to scour a sheep fleece prior to preparing for spinning. It cleaned the fleece very thoroughly and rinsed out well. This is an excellent product for this purpose.
