Why is Orvus Paste used to clean embroidery - isn't this normally used to clean horses and livestock, and is it safe for cleaning linens and embroidered pieces? Answer: Orvus Paste is 100% sodium lauryl sulfate and is manufactured by Proctor Gamble. It is a very gentle detergent used to clean cattle, dogs, goats, horses and other livestock. It is a pure *anionic detergent with a neutral pH and - most importantly - will not discolor dyes. It contains no dyes, perfumes, fats, oils, enzymes or brighteners and is considered a detergent rather than a soap. Because Orvus is a gentle **surfactant, it is also used to clean embroidered pieces, fine rugs, quilts and other textiles. It can be used in cold, warm or hot water, dissolves quickly and rinses away cleanly without leaving a residue. Feed stores and some pet stores sell Orvus Paste in a massive 7.5 pound jug, but you can find smaller bottles in quilting supplies stores, some embroidery shops, and larger sewing centers. I purchase Orvus in the large jugs because I use it often, and the price is pennies on the dollar compared to purchasing smaller "boutique" bottles. *Anionic is the term for an inert, negatively charged molecule. **A Surfactant is the term for a Surface Action Agent. Surfactants lower the water's surface tension making water, "wetter." This allows the detergent to spread over the surface of the fabric, penetrating the fibers and removing dirt from the surface, suspending it in the water.

Known as “white gold” those in that part of the world, Himalayan Rock Salt is the purest form of salt available on earth. Mined from ancient deposits deep in the Himalayas, these rock hard salt licks contain many of the valuable minerals your horse needs to promote a healthy balance in the body. Iron, potassium, and magnesium are particularly useful in replenishing electrolytes lost during hard work. It is these minerals that give the Himalayan Rock Salt its signature rosy color. The Centaur® Himalayan Rock Sock is 100% all natural and is literally “rock hard” so it can be left outside. Comes with a rope for easy hanging.
