Passier Bridle Cleaner Review
Our review of Passier Bridle Cleaner Review will be fast and furious. We purchased this item on a whim thinking that it might help us be more responsible in cleaning bridles every time we use them (not many people are fastidious enough with this). We were intrigued by the spray idea and that the cleaner was supposed to be gentile enough to use often. As with other Passier leather care products, it also smells yummy.
After one use we loved it, after a few months of using it…we don’t think we’ll buy another cleaner again for our bridles (however we might want something else for our saddles since it is so pricy per oz). It is incredibly easy and quick to use…just spray on the bridle, let it sit a few seconds, then wipe off with a sponge (or spray it on a sponge and apply to the leather that way (however we feel that you end up wasting more product that way saturating the sponge enough). This stuff seems to really take off dust and dirt and has actually improved old schooling bridles to tip top shape. The leather is super soft and supple, but not at all sticky. We are impressed! We are also proud to admit that since we started using this product, there is not one ride that has gone buy that we have not cleaned our bridle, reins, and leather halter before we left for the night. It adds an extra perhaps…5 minutes…to our routine, but we think that it is well worth it to ensure longer life to our leather goods.
It is a little pricey at $23.00 for just less than 7 oz, however it’s well worth the exchange in time cleaning and extended life of tack in the long run.
Update Oct 2016: I’m not as thrilled with this product as I once was, though I still buy it. It does soften and improve leather quite nicely, but doesn’t clean as well as I wish it would. I’ll have another review soon on a new product I’ve tried I like more.
