Bucas Wash & Care Instructions
Bucas Wash & Care Instructions must be followed for a valid warranty.
Bucas products may be machine washed at a maximum temperature of 30ºC, and on a gentle cycle. Fabric Softener must not be used. Air Dry only, therefore do not tumble dry. Use only Bucas Rug Wash. Household detergents may damage or destroy the waterproof coating. Do not dry clean.
Waterproof & Breathable Fabric
Bucas Turnout rugs are made with waterproof and breathable fabric. In order to retain the waterproof and breathable properties of this fabric, it is essential to follow Bucas Wash & Care Instructions.
Please also note that water may find its way inside the rug from around the edges and stitching. In most conditions this will be very limited but during heavy rainfall a considerable amount of water may run down the neck and inside the rug.
Bucas waterproof and breathable fabrics have an additional water repellent outer coating. The coating both protects the outer fabric and stops it from absorbing water. The outer coating is exposed to considerable weathering and wear. It is important to note that the coating is also affected by washing. Excessive washing will result in the coating breaking down much quicker than intended. To restore the outer coating, apply Bucas Rug Conditioner.
General Rug Care & Use
For best performance ensure that the rug is the right size for your horse. When not in use store rugs in a dry place with good ventilation.
