    Hi,
    I am a owner of Lipizzaners, and I struggle often to clean yellow marks from urine or manure.
    Does anybody knows a really good mix made out of natural things(heard vinegar is good, baking soda etc)?
    Any advice is welcome.
    Thank you.

    BO had a chestnut who seemed to like to use poop for a pillow, and the cleaners with tea tree oil did a nice job quickly, altho he wasnt white.
    Are you ruling out laundry bluing as too chemical? That has always done a nice job getting the yellow hues out of light on greys and palominos, manes and Tails particularly.

    In my country bluing is no more made. You can not find it in stores.

    This is not all natural but one of the less caustic whiteners, it makes them really soft and is anti-fungal.

    Ivory soap is the BEST whitener. Scrub it in, leave in for 5 mins then rinse it out. Best whitener for my grey!

    I swear by Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo. It's for blonde people but strips away all dirt. I've shown many a loudly marked horse (including a 95% white pony MARE) and have never had any product come close to it. I've heard good things about the dishwashing soap, but this shampoo is really gentle. Best yet, it's $7 for a 16 oz bottle.

    I would definitely look for any shampoo made for people with blonde or gray hair, that intentionally has blue or purple tint to it. It should be easier to find than some of the other products US members would suggest.
