Basic H works great on horses

posted 5 years ago

I use the Shaklee Basic H spray for all my animals as needed... for horses, sheep, dogs, cats, cows, chickens, humans and any animal that needs bug protection or cleaning."

"It works wonderfully as others have said for bathing animals, but I use a slightly diluted mixture in a spray bottle with a "pointy top" so that I can direct the mixture where needed and control the amount. It also helps when they are taller than me...and to get it on their legs, tails etc."

"It takes VERY LITTLE to make a good suds. If I have an animal that is jumpy, I will dilute the mixture more, so I don't waste it if they are moving around."

"For FLY SPRAY, I use 4 oz. of Basic H to 12 oz. of water in a 16 oz. spray bottle. I rub my hand over the spot I'm going to spray (especially if a horse is jumpy) so it feels something touch it on THAT SPOT, then spray the spot...AND RUB THE SPOT AGAIN with my hand to transfer it into the hair. It seems to work much better, plus this helps to keep the animal calm."

"For best results, do it every day and just use a light spray. (It will dry and flake if you use too much.) We get lots of rain in northern Oregon! I will make it a little stronger if this mixture doesn't keep the bugs away." (NOTE: Because Basic H -full strength on the skin - can be used as a mosquito repellent for humans, this diluted mixture should not hurt the horse or other animals.)

It is amazing to watch the flies being repelled by the horses!

Pros: very effective

Cons: none

No frills effectiveness

posted 6 years ago

My sister-in-law used to sell Shaklee, and I got a lot of Basic H from her. Just a couple of drops in the kitchen sink does your dishes -- suds are nice but unnecessary. I rub a bit into my palms before doing something automotive, because grease will then come off easily. Particularly good for daily damp wiping of pet feeding areas.

Pros: Good, mild, multipurpose cleaner

Cons: Not exactly cheap

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
